THE RED RIVER AREA RUNS FROM WAHPETON TO PEMBINA. WHICH RED RIVER AREA ARE YOU HEADIN' TO? MOST OF THE RIVER IS FULL OF FISH OF PRACTICALLY EVERY SPECIES. BRING A BUNCH OF BAIT, CAMP ALONG THE SHORE, AND FISH ANYTIME DAY OR NIGHT AND YOUR BOYS WILL CATCH LOADS OF FISH. I DON'T THINK I'D EAT MANY OF THEM THIS TIME OF YEAR, BUT THEY'RE LOTS OF FUN TO CATCH.

Use frogs and cut gold eye for bait. You will catch Catfish and the occasional walleye with these baits.
I fish up in the Hendrum area on the Red and Wild Rice rivers. If your camping, Hendrum has a camp ground just outside of town on county road 25. Have bath rooms and hookups. First 2 nights are free and then its $3 a day after that. Hendrum is 28 miles north of Fargo/Moorhead on Hwy 75. Can use Mn or ND
license on the Red but must have Mn lic for the Wild Rice.
Fishin has been hot as of late. Pulled in 7 cats last night on the Wild Rice, 3 in the 10 -12 lb range but they get alot bigger out on the Red.
Have fun.

Like the others said, It's pretty good fishing on the Red. It just depends on your situation. I fish the banks all the time when possible.

Make sure you know how to handle a catfish or bullhead. You'll more than likely run into other fisherman that can show you.

Good Luck

Take a look at http://www.fargomoorhead.org/ & you will find handy info on locations and places to camp and fish.

Lindenwood Park is a nice camp area and well situated to get to a lot of area catfishing locations.

I have a related, more specific question. Where, exactly, is the access in Fargo that is upstream from the midtown dam (I know it's not technically a dam anymore)? I'd like to fish the Lindenwood area and I've never fished up from the dam before. I was told it is just upstream from the dam, but I looked for it and didn't find it. It's on the Fargo side, right?
Thanks,
Scoot

Ther boat ramp is just south of the downtown dam. It is on the Fargo side of the river. It is a nice ramp and fairly new. Bruce

Don't forget the Red River of the North, Right now it's Cattin' season but four more weeks or so and the greenbacks will be coming down! The exchange rate is really to your advantage as well! Good luck on your trip!

Dan,

If you had to pick one date that would represent the typical time of year when the walleyes show up around Lockport, what would that date be? Is the date highly variable or can you make a pretty decent prediction? Also, if you had to pick a one week period to fish walleyes in the same area when would that week be (only including boat fishing)? Does that migration happen pretty much all at once or is it more gradual?
From what I've heard the preferred methods of fishing are live bait rigs, cranks, and jigs- any other common methods to throw in there?
Thanks for the info and help,
Scoot

Scoot,
I've had luck catchen walleye's in Grand Forks as recently as today. I was using a white grub and caught 6 ranging from a pound to pound and a half. I was actually trying to catch Goldeye but had no such luck.

Monty,
I actually was in a boat and fished near lincoln park. If you would like to venture out in a boat on the red sometime let me know. I dont plan on going out again untill after the tourny but if your in dire need to try for a piggy sooner i can easily be talked into a journy of such likes. You can let me know anytime your coming to town so incase of wet muddy banks we can just run out in the boat. Im usally open most weekends.
Let me know,
Take care everyone,
Chad

      Hello,  I have an older model minn kota trolling motor.  Its a 1999 All Terrain Power Max 44lb Thrust.    I cannot seem to find a new foot pedal system for it. Should I just get a new trolling motor? Thanks in advance for any help

      It’s the greatest experience to take a kid duck hunting on youth day. There is not enough kids out there to chase the ducks away. When I take kids o rarely see another person hunting. I wish they had youth day when I was a kid. Stop being selfish and give the kids a chance!

      I think that's a great way to do it.  Probably only takes a minute to put it on or take it off.

      The guy I bought our place from had an 1/8" cable right down the center of the whole dock. I'll likely move towards a more invisible, section by section approach. However, the full length cable setup has been effective and not as intrusive as one may imagine. Really easy to fasten all the sections at once. May be able to see in the attached

      Headed north to a little perch and walleye lake this morning. The day didn't start the greatest, go to take off from the landing and the boat porpoised like a mofo... Ah crap forgot the plug haha haven't done that one in a few years... The day got better from there, we found fish stacked up on the wind blown weed line... There were so many fish I assumed they were schools of big perch, but they were mostly smaller walleyes with some real nice keepers mixed in... Crawlers under a bobber were the ticket... They would hardly touch a leech.

      Many of you FM long termers remember FisherDog from way back...he used to post all the time before he moved to Florida.  He was up for a couple days this past week and we got on a good crappie bite in the area, he is a Crappie Guru and man we worked hard but had fun...boated well over 100 in 2 days on the outside weed edges...many absolute Donkeys. Kept a few smaller ones so he could have a fish fry for his family...couple of pics...he's in the blue shirt.

      Any action out on Gull?  I have tried a few times and have had some success pulling rapalas but finding areas void of weeds is getting harder and harder.  Just curious how others are fairing out there.  I am thinking I need to get out there during the day and try small jigs and 3" minnows as that is what have been in the guts of the fish we have cleaned.
    • ozzie
      I have a buddy that has a cabin on the lake and he will fish the walleyes over deep water and also in the weeds as they seem to relate to both at times.  Seems like a hard lake to pattern but he always seems to catch something out there.  Good Luck
    • Hoey
      ...oh and I ran into Fiskynut on the Lake as well as the Point following Striefffs too.  
    • ozzie
      so just curious how is the water situation in the area?  the document didn't open and I don't get up in the area as often as I would like but I have heard of quite a few storms roll through the area.  I know the sentiment earlier this year was it was gonna take a lot to get things going in the right direction, so has that started to happen or still way below normal?  Thanks
