Lower Red Lake

7 posts in this topic

I'll try to answer your questions, and maybe others can add more specifics. I am told by people who have been on Lower Red that it is deeper and has more structure. Don't know much about the details. Yes there is current between the lakes, but it is more wind dependant than water flow dependant. I do not know of any plans in place to open it to reservation guided trips, although there are some people in the Res that support the idea.

It would be a kick to fish it someday just because of the mystery, but I will not be heartbroken if I never do.

I read in the bemidji paper that they had talked about building a casino and spotfishing resort on a prime spot thay have been saving.The report was in the bemidji paper dated sept 20th 2002 in the outdoor section.

Come summertime can a guy take his boat,, with no fishing stuff of coarse,, over on the res. side or maybe even on lower or do you have to be an reservation member?? I would just like to do some sight seeing.

Yes, I know it's off limits, but I have a couple questions that perhaps someone could answer:
1. Is Lower Red as shallow as Upper Red? Same type of (or lack of) structure?
2. I've heard rumors that Lower Red may be opened up soon for Reservation guided trips. Is this true?
3. How deep does the channel get between Upper and Lower Red Lakes? Is there a current?

Thanks for your replies. Sometimes, curiosity gets the best of me.

The Red Lake Reservation is a another nation, you cannot enter there. Other then that Fish-On said all I know.

Kelly, Do you think any crappies come up from the lower to replace the ones harvested from the upper?

My opinion is that they move back and forth depending on water temps, time of year, etc..
