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

Recommended Posts

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

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      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.
