I haven't been able to fish the Red for a while. Anyone given any of the usual spots a shot yet? Anyone have any insights about the river at this point- water depth and clarity?, water temp?, what's the scoop?

Scoot,

Have not wet a line on the red yet but was over the bridge by Brushvale near Breck and Christine today and it's really starting to open up. Gets a guy excited!!!!

I fished the North Dam today and it seems a little early still. Lots of ice floating in the river still. We'll need some warmer weather and sun to get the fish moving the right direction.

He's back!
I must be one poor fisherman- I was there on Wed. and didn't have a nibble. Fished both cranks and jig + minnow and didn't have a sniff. However, it was raining and pretty ugly when I was out there. I'd like to give it a go when it is sunny and nice out. I'll try give it a shot this weekend.
By the way, I noticed one other set of boot tracks when I was down there. Looked like about a size 11 or so- I figured it might be you, eh?
Thanks for the heads up.

Ya know that spot you ice fished this winter and I was down the road a ways and we missed each other, that spot Eh. The one YOU were at, not me. I have found a few on the move there in the past few days.

They don't appear to be much farther along then that yet, need some sun I think to get them on the move more. That water warms and chills fast effecting the bite and moods just as fast. It is still warmer then the main channel, so they are sniffing around.

Thanks for the tip, Ed. I'll give it a shot in the next few days. Been up at the Rainy and freezing my butt off for a while and haven't been out around here.

      We've been big fans of the 3" minnows, and 5" leeches, along with crawlers, great color combinations, with floating versions ta boot.👍👍     Found the pinched half crawlers to work great for adding spin to "slow death" presentation...

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      Ive been out a few times as well..have tried from the harbor all the way up to boyscout...have been getting a few everytime out but has been slow for me....been trolling crawlers with big colorado blades..have caught fish on flats by barkers,between the bridges,and out from clyde area....got 6 cats accidentally while trolling boards by the community hole south west side of spirit lake...water clarity still sucks in the harbor..a bit better the farther up river u go...has it been kinda slow for everyone?????ive been doing better on fish lake.lol

      And they are big, feels like you have a bass on! We thru them all back.

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂
    • LBerquist
      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.
