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

      The shallower lakes are froze over and the deep ones are getting close.

      I need to hit Linwood up as that is a lake I fished so much with my grandpa. Used to get lots of keeper gills and nice crappies and big pike out of there.

      Lakes around Princeton are froze over or close. Lori lake had the most open water and lots of ducks. Silver lake capped over and stanchfield south and north mist froze over.

      I saw enough ice on smaller lakes in the Crosslake area to know they are getting closer and colder to icing over!

      On the main basin... For those fishing the lake, fishing has been good.  Most bays and harbors locked up with ice this past week, which has put a halt to the open water fishing.  At last report, there are good numbers of walleyes and saugers staged in traditional early ice locations across Pine Island and the entire south shore.  With fish location, numbers and fall success, LOW is primed for good early ice fishing. On the Rainy River... The Rainy River is still loaded with walleyes.  Some anglers made it out this week but single digits locked up any water not moving and it is pretty much done.  Anglers that got out had big numbers of walleyes to reward them, similar to previous week.  Up at the NW Angle... Ice is formed in back bays, harbors, on the angle inlet, from Young's Bay to Flag Island and across most of Flag Island flats.  Larger stretches of water or current areas still open.  Ice fishing will be here soon, but not yet.  Stay on staked resort ice trails when ice fishing begins.  Safety first.

      I am a maki mino guy the 1 inch ones for gills and crappies. The xl mino is great for big crappies perch and eyes. I have used many of the maki plastics but I tend to have the best luck with white with red flakes mino. The poli was good as well.
