RED RIVER UPDATE FOR, TUESDAY, OCTOBER 16TH...

3 posts in this topic

Yesterday, the Department of Public Works Canada (DPW) began their annual fall "draw-down" of the dam structure.

This year (like last year) they are conducting a slow, gradual draw-down which will not have any negative impact on the angling efforts that have been underway for the past few weeks. In fact, the slight increase in flow rates will only be beneficial as it will only attract more fish to migrate into the Red off Lake Winnipeg.

Yesterday's results of some friends of mine only adds merit to this as they successfully landed a 28.5, 29.5 and 31 inch HAWG's.

Sorry about the last "attempted" post, I'll admit that I'm often guilty when it pertains to "not" reading policies! blush.gif

That aside, the action on the Lower Red has been fantastic!

This past week has produced a high volumn of really huge walleye. Jigs and salties is the ticket at this time.

These patterns will remain in effect as long as the weather continues to hold. wink.gif

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.
