Lower Red predictions

6 posts in this topic

The Lower Red is in tremendous shape and from recent observations I've been making, there seems to be a ton of channels in here at this time. This will make for an absolute, action packed opener on May 12th! For those who are headed this way, you won't be disappointed!

Stu- I've been thinking of planning a trip up there in late August...what's the fishing like then? I want to get a hold of some of those channels, it looks like fun. I'll probably end up giving you a call when I can firm up plans with the guys...

Late August can be awesome on the Red. The channels are beginning to focus on the task of pork'n up for winter. When they get into this hunting mode, the action can be absolutely incredible! I'll be more than happy to explain the patterns. Ed, you and "little" Shannon better get your butts up here ASAP! The river is in the best shape I've seen it in years and it seems to be stuffed with kitties! There's also a huge head of goldeye in here as well right now, small wonder why there's so many cats! I'll be on the water Saturday and I'll post an update on the results.

I should also mention that Lake Winnipeg can be interesting in late August. The action can be great for "slab" white bass and walleye and it's only a thirty five minute drive over there!

      It's been interesting. Like everyone, when you first discover these forums, you feel part of a small group and want to share everything. But then you realize the vast depth of the internet and how many people are actually seeing what you post. Then it's like whoa!  Once I saw the impacts first hand of what a popular thread did to a fishery it significantly changed my opinion on these forums. They are great, but tread lightly.   And yes, with the evolution fishing comforts, there has been an huge increase in pressure across the board. I just worry about lake trout the most because of the lack of info out there about them and the complete lack of management by the DNR. Every species seems to have a "group" pushing the DNR for increased management and educating the public. Lake trout don't have that. T.U. does a lot for stream trout, but nothing for lakers. Not sure where our trout stamp money is going anymore, aside for stocking rainbows and loopers. Seems there should be added attention on a few of the more popular lake trout lakes keeping tabs on them.

      Caught a 33 and 36" on the rocks this weekend. I've never been successful targeting them. But always seem to catch some here and there.

      Check out Raven Lake in Ontario. I've seen their ad in Outdoor News saying $240/week per person. I've been meaning to check this out and see what it includes as far as accommodations, boats etc.
