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

      Launching a new line of utility ropes (paracord, diamond braid and MFD) and looking to get feedback on them. You get the the product for free in exchange for a review. It's simple; private message me what item you would like to try and where you would like it shipped to. Once you get it please assess the product and leave a review of that specific part number on Amazon or Wal-mart. I am looking for 20  people to test them out. A few samples below. I look forward to hearing from you.

      I know most of the bays have a couple inches of ice and guys are ice fishing. I would doubt the main lake is locked up but there could be some ice to deal with. Better off packing the boat away instead no huge warm up in site.
