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

      Unfortunately that’s the norm at just about every popular community spot on lakes/rivers. I fished the zumbro river this past opener, and filled up the back of my truck with discarded bottles and cans. While litter certainly isn’t pretty to look at, it doesn’t mean the river is polluted.

      There is a new scale introduced this year by Rapala and it is better than the other ones because of one simple change: instead of the metal hook there is a clip.  This is what they use in tournaments.  It has a locking mechanism that hooks to the lower jaw.  The hook sucks.  Always has, always will.  Sticking a metal hook up inside the gills of a fish to weigh it is a terrible idea, plus they can shake off and then smack on the floor and die.  Skip the hook, use the clip.

      Both types of minnows are working. Crawlers are still getting most of our fish in some locations. Cliff

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.

      I've been using the "modern step" scales for about a year now. I bought them on Amazon. They have very good reviews, and the scales are very convenient and suitable for weighing anything.  Here is the link https://www.amazon.com/Professional-Accurate-Reloading-Modern-Step/dp/B01N25OC6P/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1536218450&sr=8-1&keywords=fish+scale

      The Vermillion south of MSP is spelled with two "l"s. The one in this forum only has one.

      It's always nice when you have a week to get everything nicely packed, organized and ready to go. 🙂 It's just that few hours when you get home tired and dump it all in a big dirty pile to sort out that suk! 😆   Gook Luck!
