When you guys are talking about the North and south dams where are they located? I've never fished the river before and would like to try it out, another thing how are the fish for eating?

The north dam is located north moorhead/fargo east of the toll bridge.And the south dam is located south fargo/moorhead next to dike east/west on the east side if in fargo and it is west of woodlawn park if you are comeing from the moorhead side.

I'm not sure I'm following ScottyB, or he's got his dams mixed up- one of the two (probably my confusion).
The mid-town dam is near dike east- near Prarie Psychiatric and the Professional Building. The South dam is near the convent off of South University- not too far south of the Fargo Country Club.

Yup, there are 3 dams in the greater FM area on the Red River.

You can get maps and specific details on the DNR web site or the Fargo Moorhead Parks site.

Scoot hit it pretty close too. The S Dam is a bit tricky to find at first. It is best accessed from the MN side. The ND side is a walk in only situation and the area is developed so access can be limited.

That's a low blow! I wish I could come back up, but it's not in the cards for me. I'm stuck here in town through Sun.- no way I can swing it. ****!
I'll just have to catch my piggy here instead of there.

I'll see what is free Scoot, but yup, sounds like a plan.

N by NW may be a plan too?

Any of you guys going to hit the river this weekend? I'd love to tag along and learn a bit about the river since I live right here in Fargo. Let me know, either day is good for me.

Thanks

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..

      Good fishing in the Blue Earth river too. Also, a short drive to Rapidan can be productive.

      Welcome to the site @eg_gophers2124 I have never even seen the lake but these screen shots might help. Navionics Judging by the Lake Finder report, it’s a super clear lake; 17-20 foot clarity but with plenty of weeds. A couple shots of the weed report. Starting from scratch, I would head to the southwest area.  The southern basin has better looking structure too. You might do well simply working edges of the emergent weeds with spinnerbaits in low light and weedless frogs or spoons up in the weeds when it gets to be mid day.  Crawler under a slip bobber on the weed edges could do well also. It’s purely guessing on my part.  Hopefully someone with experience on the lake will chime in. Good luck!

      walked that creek to the river many years!!!  again home area!!!!

      Bring your spinning rod and fish for walleyes or white bass at the confluence. Wherever the river is pounding the shoreline fish the current breaks for big flatties. Heavy fiberglass rod with a sturdy baitcaster and 50 lb power pro line will be effective. Fish the head of snags for channels. Setup just like a Lindy rig for them with 1 oz to 5 oz no roll sinker and a big live bait like a 7" bullhead or even larger sucker for flatties. Use cut strips of bait off a large sucker or something similar for channels. Frogs can be good too. Have fun.
