Thief River Falls Report

2 posts in this topic

Went fishing on the Red Lake River between TRF and St.Hilare on Saturday. I only got out for a couple hours before sunset, but ended up catching a few nice fish. I ended up catching a couple big Rock Bass, a couple small pike and a really nice small mouth. All where caught on a jig and minnow. I tried a bottom rig for about a half an hour before I left and missed two fish.

The water was pretty low, so I was wading out and casting to specific areas, wich worked pretty well.

Fished above the dam on Sunday and caught alot of small northerns with a spinner bait and some Rock Bass using a jig and minnow. Water temp was around 60 degrees, so the fish are showing up in their summer locations now.

Fishing is gettin' good, get out and cath some...

      Is Stoney point access open to the public or just for camper access?

      I purchased this exact boat last year just for Trout.  16ft Alumacraft, 25hp Yamaha, Helix 5 humminbird. This year I purchased a 50# thrust Minn Kota for the bow, I just haven't installed it yet.  Looking forward to it!

      Cutbait is all I use for cats on the red. Cut goldeye, sucker and frogs are my go to baits. Typically a 4-6 oz no roll sinker with a foot leader or shorter. Cast it down current and wait. Caught a lot of cats that way. We actually caught eyes doing that too but not many. Haven't tried bait paste or anything like that but would imagine it would work
