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

      When you rubbed your hand on the ducer before, did you notice a thin layer of ice on it?  I’m guessing No, with how you described the situation, but that can happen with a ducer that’s below freezing when you dunk it in the water.  It ruins sensitivity.     You’re open ice fishing, yes?  Not in the warmth of a house?  Like the others mentioned, could just be your graph doesn’t like the cold.  And it’s always better to have the depth range locked in than on auto.   Good luck Bob.
    • Walleye Guy
      Do you have a link to an article or regulation that shows the changes?
    • Wanderer
      Yeah, I think we’ve had enough.  The silver lining for me is I DONT plan on fishing this weekend.  But I do have to ready my sled for next weekend in ON.  I’m hoping the snow isn’t as bad up there.  Strange to think it’s a possibility but yeah, that’s how much we have in MN.   I kept my face plastered to the plane window going down to Denver on Monday.  The snow line peters out around the NE/CO border.  The only people not complaining about snow and cold at home were from CA!   I thought there was a noticeable lack of fishouses out on our MN lakes too.  I hope to get a good view of Mille Lacs when we come into Brainerd.  It was amazing how small the lake looked on the way out! 😄

      so anyone know whats up with snowfighter???????? he hasnt posted in a long long time?????? hope all is well with him. my parents bought the cabin from his dad!!!!!!
    • Dusty
      good news, I heard earlier that it was under consideration.
    • artjaco
      Looking at the latest images, the lake looks pretty iced over... are there any areas of thin ice / open water to be found? Not looking to fish, need to test some safety gear with a group. Any river mouths open or areas between Duluth and Tettegouche?
    • Bigfatbert
      Yup !!   Also note the new one over change to 26”... it’s currently 28” 18”-26 must be immediately released , and one walleye over 26” may be included daily and possession. Kab , Namakan, Sand Point , Crane . These changes start on the 2019 opener .

      So after the 8” of snow the other day the lakes are a huge mess. I was out for a snowmobile ride yesterday and went to a lake not to far from home. I like to ride out there a couple times a week. So I made a loop around the lake and the snow was about knee deep but had no issues. I was just about ready to head home and checked out an area I like to fish. Well.... I jumped a plowed road bank and sink in about 1 foot of water and slush. I pinned my sled and barley crawled along about 50 years to dry snow. So my weekend plans of fishing are done. This was a smaller lake so I’m sure all lakes are impassable. I have what I think id a good ice fishing sled. A Polaris 600 with a 136” track never had an issue before but with all the snow and slush now there’s no way I’ll be able to fish. The snowmobile trails haven’t beeen grommed after the last snow and I’m getting sick of riding the ditches. Anyone else annoyed with all this snow now? Thanks Mother Nature I now have nothing to do this weekend! 😥

      Way to let "Quasimoto" go and perpetuate his/her goofy genes...  If I catch a bunch of funny-looking, humpy 13.5 inchers in the future, I'm blaming you! 😁  (...as opposed to the scrawny 9 inchers I'm lucky to catch...) Poor thing looks like it's gonna get stuck in the ice-hole!
    • BobT
      I usually keep my sonar unit in the house because I put it on the charger every time I get home. Just for fun, the next time it does it, I might try just warming up the transducer and sending it back down the hole to see what happens. Thanks.
