About River Eyes Guide Service - Your Guide to World Class Walleye Fishing
River Eyes Guide Service started due to our intense passion for fishing. Your guide Aaron lives on the river and has been fishing on the Rainy River water system for over 10 years both personally and as a tournament angler.
The river is an ever changing body of water and this experience has helped Aaron be able to locate and catch fish in the many different conditions present on the river.
We have purchased a 2017 Ranger Fisherman 621FS with a 350 Mercury Verado to give our guests the absolute best experience when it comes to walleye fishing boats in the world. We will be focusing our guiding efforts on the "Ice out" and late fall seasons as this time of year is best for large numbers of fish as well as trophy walleye in the river system.
Ice out happens at different times every year depending on a variety of factors but the time between when the ice is first off of the river until the season closes again on April 15 allows for some of the best walleye fishing in the world.
Late season walleye fishing on the river is also fantastic and starts to heat up around the mid to late part of September and into October as the water cools down and the fish follow the shiners back into the river. We will fish with a jig and live bait, one of the most effective ways to land a trophy walleye.
