First thing, Read up on the spring conservation regulations on the slot limit, and be sure to understand them well! The river is being monitored closely.

2 - Walleye under 18”.
0 – Walleye between 18 & 28” Minatory release!
1 – Over 28” if you chose to keep a wall-hanger.
Not a combo of 3 under if you do not get lucky and get a wall-hanger eye!
All pike over 27” must be released, the limit is 3 a day.

Bring a tape and know how to legally measure fish.
From the tip of the nose, to the tip of the tail as it is PINCHED TOGETHER!

Work the dams. Pick up a phone book and see the map inside and look for the parks. The North Dam is near the Toll bridge on the North side of town. The middle dam is at dike east in down town, and the South dam is near River Oaks point.

Try the North Dam, the Middle Dam and the South Dam first. Look for reduced current areas and try slip rigs or floats rigs near shore, they are producing the best overall at this time.

Large minnows on floating jigs on bottom will do well.

Stay away for the center of the river, the fish are in tight to shore near structure. All you will find out in the middle are snags at this point in time.

The water is COOL yet, the fish are not too aggressive.

Think like this, if you had to walk into the cold wind were would you walk? Now apply that and compare that to the travel patterns walleye will likely take moving up river to the dams.

If you see others who do not understand the spring regulations be sure to point them out and if the disobey anyway, report there @$$.

The number is on the fishing license if you need it.

Thank you very much for the info, I would not keep any anyways I have plenty of fish to eat from LOW this winter and also plenty of Red LAKE Crappies. I just wanted a place to take my daughter to catch some as she love it! And it is a lost easier not in a boat. Again thanks for the info, and I will keep an eye out for thoose who do not abide by the rules. Also one last ques. Is it open in North Dakota right now to fish walleyes? I live in Moorhead and It is closed, but I never checked about the season for the river but as soon as i leave this chair I will!!!

      Launching a new line of utility ropes (paracord, diamond braid and MFD) and looking to get feedback on them. You get the the product for free in exchange for a review. It's simple; private message me what item you would like to try and where you would like it shipped to. Once you get it please assess the product and leave a review of that specific part number on Amazon or Wal-mart. I am looking for 20  people to test them out. A few samples below. I look forward to hearing from you.

      I know most of the bays have a couple inches of ice and guys are ice fishing. I would doubt the main lake is locked up but there could be some ice to deal with. Better off packing the boat away instead no huge warm up in site.

      I have done 4 with these. 3 for me and 1 for son in law. will be doing his from this year also with one. I ordered some skull hangers online that I hope work nice.  They support it at an angle so the head sits up and rack looks nicer than when hanging down when the skulls are flat on the wall. Will do a pic when I get them up. Getting hard to find room in the mancave. LOL I have done about a dozen using the boiling method. Deer hunting sure is fun.
