Hi All,

I have a problem with my legs and can only walk about 150-200 ft. at a time so things are getting kind of tough for me to fish with this high water all the time. Dam near August and getting later all the time. I managed to catch some Goldeye for bait but rain again.

I'm wondering where I can fish without a long walk to the Red. I have a van I can camp in with my gear but have to be able to park by the river. The North dam works but so dam high there and muddy. Mebe tomorrow but talking more rain again.

I'd swear I'm back in GA. again. Anyway looking for some spots in MN and ND on the Red. Catfish mostly.
Driving distance isn't too important as can camp there.

Good luck all, count your blessings. Things could be worse.

Fred,
You might want to try fishing by the boat ramp in Hendrum or under the bridge in Halstad. We fished these areas by boat last week and did well. I think it would also work out well for shore fishing there too. There were some people fishing from shore under the Halstad bridge. I try to avoid fishing by the North Fargo dam as there are so many things in the river in that area that I seemed to get snagged on. Bruce

Fred,
Have you tried the Hendrum landing yet? You can drive right down to about 50 ft of the water and fish right next the the boat ramp (whats left of it) Pretty solid ground. Has gravel around it mixed in with the mud but still solid enough where you wont get the shoes sucked off your feet. As your facing the river there is some nice back water to the right where the cats like to hang out. Have pulled in some double digit fish from that spot. The best part about that spot is that the higher the water the better, the backwater gets larger and holds more fish and you dont have to walk far from the tar. I fished there this spring and was sitting in my car with my pole in reach didnt get any mud on me at all. I also take the kids down there to fish and they come home pretty clean.

Thanks Bruce and Ordie,

I'll be fishing those spots shortly. My Mother lives in Shelly so should work out well.

Why is it I never fish my back yard, so to speak? I tend to fish where I have good luck and don't move around much. Big mistake.

Change of plans. Now that I know where it's posible for me to fish I'll use that info to my advantage.

Thanks again guys!

I run a blue camper van with Swenson on the spare tire cover. I hope to meet you guys shortly!

Fred,
If you don't mind a road trip, come up to Pembina. The boat ramp has to be seen to be believed, there's camping and a cleaning station with fish grinder just outside the dike, and you can drive right up to the Red for shorefishing anywhere from the ramp to the mouth of the Pembina River, about a 150 yard stretch. A week ago, two of us caught a 10.5# male cat and a 2# sucker as well as several stonecats from shore in about an hour before the skeeters drove us out.
