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...

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents
