Question for BWE or any other knowledgable "Red-Man"

Recommended Posts

Scoot

BWE,

I know the Red isn't like your typical lake where you can pinpoint bars and depths on a topo map, but is there anything that gives info about the depth of the Red River? Despite the many changes that happen on a river I would think that something would exist with depth info about the Red.
Thanks,
Scoot

The U.S. Coast Guard has jurisdiction on the Red and I would expect they have some navigational charts hidden some place. They would be expensive to purchase is my guess?


I have asked the ND G&F and they have nothing avalable.

Last year I was issued a complete set of river maps that illustrate detail but no depths but this set is still extremely handy. We use these maps for creel survey work on the Red river.

WWW.Topozone.com is a good resource to get sectional maps of river areas that you are researching. Again no depth charts avalable there just topo, yet handy to have.

If you do find some depth charts let me know.

Maps for the Red River North of the border are available from the dept. of Natural Resources 200 Saulteaux Crescent ph. 204-945- 6784. The maps are very interesting as they do give some relatively accurate indications of depth from the border out to lake Winnipeg. Another excellent source of information will be the Canadian coast guard who set up buoys to help larger lake boats navigate up to Winnipeg (their office is in Selkirk). Hope this helps. Dan

      Some pockets of slush on the east end. Only came upon one spot that covered a large area, most were small spots.  Walking on the lake was not to bad, snow is light and fluffy.  I didn’t see anything that would stop me, but not sure how far of a trek you have.

      How is the snowpack and slush looking these days? I'm looking to walk into my place on the west end one of these weekends but don't want to make the trek in knee-deep powder or thigh-deep slush!

      That would be a lot of work to get done in three months, assuming that they can even get a GC to line up all of the subs. October sounds more realistic. Looks like I'll have to find other ways to support the local businesses in town. I might have to send Mrs. SkunkedAgain and Miss SkunkedAgain to the girl store a few times with a wad of cash.

      As soon as humanely possible. We have a seasonal cabin that we use year-round, an no road access. Therefore like PSU, we are bound by the ice-out to determine our first open water trip. If I had road access, it would likely be determined by other factors such as snow on the driveway, etc.   If you have plumbing pipes, that is another concern. We haul in our water so I don't have to worry about pipes bursting. About six years ago, I did hook up my lake pump at opener at left it filled with water. When I came back for Memorial Day, the iron housing had cracked due to water freezing.   My general advice is to not avoid the in-between times. They are often the best. Less people are around, you get to see the land and the lake change, when the ice goes out you get to see eagles and other scavengers pick up all the floating winter-kill fish, green starts popping up everywhere, etc. It's a fun time to be in the woods and around the lake. Canoeing through ice or boating through black ice is always a hoot as well!

      Smurfy has fish with his name on them. He must have put another order into Morries.

      I know!!😊 but I ain't got anyone to shovel.😞 and after tomorrow's snow I'm hearing grumbling of a huge magor storm for the weekend.

      Does the handle fit otherwise? If so, rather than wait for the OEM to send a screw, I would most likely have gone down to my local Fleet Farm or Menards and found a SS screw to fit. I wouldn't get my shorts too much in a bunch over it.

      Brokie - Without knowing where you are located, I can not recommend a reel shop, is what I recommend doing.  A reel repair shop should be able to help you with your problem.  West side of the TC, Wayzata Bait and Tackle, for example.
