With the current weather, the water level in the Red, and the forecast this week... I give up. I've been waiting with much anticipation but I'm afraid that this rain over the past two days has pretty much sealed the deal that we won't be catching any spring walleye on the Red. I don't know what the water temp is on the Red right now (but I'd love to- hint, hint) but I'm thinking that it'll be warm enough to spawn out the ladies before we can get down to do anything about it. Uuuuuugh!
Top that off with the fact that my fiance just informed me that "we have plans" next weekend- opener weekend- and I'm not a happy camper.
Apparently this has become my "piss and moan" page because that's all I seem to do here lately. The Red has not been very welcoming this year so far though. I'm still looking forward to wetting a line in her murky waters, but it may be June before we can actually do that!

Conditions are poor all over the mid to lower Red but this will pass. No boat landings in the Fargo region were open or usable, most shore areas are closed or too muddy also. I seen not one angler all weekend in the F/M area.

It's a bummer for sure but we have other opportunities in the region and it is a good time to look to them.

Boat ramps and shore fishing areas are open in the Wahpeton area with the river falling, a better shot for now, or try the SD/MN spot I mentioned Scoot, White Rock Dam.

Hi Guys,

I live right on the Red here in FM 4 stories up. The MHD high rise across from Oak Grove. West exposure too.

It's dropping but will be a while yet. I normaly fish just below here on the Fgo side but the walk bridge collapsed.
So much for that. I'll catch my goldeye for bait here and then hit the No. dam when accessible.

I'll post my info on the board as the first thing I see in the Morning is the Red.

Keep the faith Guys. It won't be long.

Fred

Hey guys it's going to be tough but we're going to give the Red a go this Saturday (Selkirk area). Access is a bit tough for boaters but we can always shore fish....we've got some different laws regarding egress up north here and getting to/and using the shore the river is not generally as big a problem as I've read/heard you have down south (I read the horror stories posted here that you fellows are having to gain access to rivers/dams etc. ... wow!). I've got a feeling we're going to have a tough time locating bunches of fish as the Red up here is moving a whole lot of water. I suspect the cats will still be hunkered down and not moving as much as they normally do at this time of the year. I'll report in to let you folks know how it's up here ...

Anyone know the temp of the Red around Fargo?

      How about a digital photo frame in the shack.

      I remember the picture you are talking about, but I think it was last year some time and I just don't think I could wad through all of Duff's politic fall out to find it!  😵   One of my buddies put up those adhesive backed thin cork-board squires on two of his cabin walls. Pretty fun idea of his family growing up at the cabin.  With fishing, hunting pictures mixed in.

      Looks like their still running the small motel. Hope they rebuild it was a pretty nice place when they remodeled a few years ago.

      Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup were pretty much ice free this past weekend.  Spring Bay has ice as it's really protected.  Some ice in Richie but the west wind on Monday pushed it all to the east end.

      Sounds like cost/benefit analysis is underway...

      I tried finding the pic @Duffman posted of the board he put together for his basement/bar I think it was but no dice.  Too much for me sift through.  It was pretty cool though and maybe in line with the OP’s idea.   @leech~~, got some time and mad search skills to dig that one up?

      How is the ice build-up coming along? I can't wait until Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup freeze so that I can get to my place across the ice. I'm hoping for another low-slush year.

      Jim Zupancich, who works out of the flagship store in Ely, said the Zup’s in Cook has been in business for more than 20 years. He added: “We do OK there. It’s a living. We’ll get back on our feet.”   Jim didn't give much of an endorsement but I understand the economics. One of the early articles had the store manager saying that they would rebuild. A later article quoted one of the Zupancich's saying that they would assess the possibility of rebuilding. I think that we all hope that they will rebuild, and hopefully they had good insurance to make it an easy choice.

      As of mid July nothing was going on there. I drove in there, think I parked in the bar!

      Picked up a new supply of pretreated cleaning patches and some Blackhorn loading tubes tonight at Shooting Sports.   I’m just dabbling with getting things ready but the more I do, the more motivated I get to go.  Too bad you’re so wrapped up in hockey this time of year that you can’t really get into it now!  Good to spend time with the kids but ignoring the call is tough.
