Hey Backwater (or any other knowledgable souls up there!),

What can you tell me about the Roseau river? Specifically north of the border. Is it a larger river? What type of fishing could I expect? Do you think I could navigate it with a 14 foot aluminum boat or even a larger lund? How about waterfowling in this waterway???

It appears to feed into the Red River, is this true? Any information you could pass on would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!!!

i can only tell you a couple of things....
at the mouth at the red it is about 50yds wide.... just east from the mouth and you are on the reserve.....
maybe try to contact natural resources in morris and they can fill you in on navigation

The Rousseau is a smaller river and it is not generally navigated by power boats for great distances. Canoeists love the river as it does have a riffle, run, pool structure throughout. I've canoed it on a high water year and it is a blast (type 2 rapids in spots!). It does have a moderate current and has an excellent population of Rock Bass 10+ inch (real slabs!). Walleye and Pike, suckers, bullhead and some cats are present in the river to varying degrees. Water flow and temperature fluctuations do not allow this to be an extraordinarily productive angling river. Pike populations do seem on occasion to be reasonable but pike never reach monsterous proportions (more the hammer handle variety). I hope this helps ..... regards Dan

Yup....there seems to be some differences between the American side and the Canadian.... I guess? I've fished, canoed, and worked on Bridges (I'm in that business too!) from about Gardenton (MB.) to the Red (at the Rousseau River Indian reserve #2). My report only applies to what I know of the waters from the mouth to about 20kms from the US border. I regret that I did not specifiy that my report was not about the US side. What size where those cats (I'm always interesting in knowing about them whiskered critters!)? I regret any confusion I may have caused, Dan

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.

      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      Clear skies this morning but hopefully you get some dinner .... otherwise  the Pike are biting!!  👊
    • Cret Jigs
      Pike very active with 6-12 feet running crank baits ... also Bass !!   Been using various crank runners some off deeper weed lines 12-15 feet.    Fun trolling and having to stop because the rod was smacked hard 😃     Cret

      Been awhile since I posted, busy summer but finally got the kayak back out on the Mississippi to chase after them fall smallies. The bite was really good and managed a new personal best at 21"! Bait of choice is my wacky worm, they never can resist! I'll be chasing these till ice is on the lakes. Best fishing is right around the corner, goodluck everyone!    Video:  https://youtu.be/PJOZITB0ol0
