I'm wondering if any of you guys are into fly fishing, and if anyone fly-fishes the red river?

I just got my first fly rig and cant wait to give it a shot this year.

(also i finally bought a catfish rod rig so I can play with some sumo's this summer, cant wait)

Yes I flyfish for all species (in the Red of the North) but I'm especially interested in cats for a change of pace. The bite is unique and the fight is next to none....

Hey Shawn,

Good to meet you today. We never did find any number of fish while looking. Some goofing around, but we searched high and low and didn't produce much.
Last summer a fella by the name of Saint Mark did some asking about fly fishing on the Red. You may want to do a search for some of his posts. Sounded like a knowledgable fly fisherman.
Good luck,
Scoot

I've been off for a while but now I'm back. Yes I fly fish for pike, trout, blugills,bass, and this summer MUSKIE!!!!
What type of help are you looking for. I'm actually headed down to the Red, North Dam tonight actually. I am ready, willing and able to give advice. I do alittle teachin in casting and tying. My price is the best FREE.
Perhap a cold pop is nice!! I ususally check my mail in the evening. I should be at the north dam from 5:30 till 8pm tonight. I'll be on the ND side. Just ask for saint mark or jackfrost. I'll be the guy all wrapped up in fly line like a mummy smile.gif

Sorry I didnt read this mesdsage until 9:30 so I didnt make it down to the river. Unfortunately had to cover at work till 8 ( gotta love theese 12 hour days).
I was mostly just wondering if anyone has tried fly fishing the red. Im gettin set up right now and taking classes at the Mhd High school. And I started tying my first flies last week, so its always nice to talk with someone that has some experience.
Let me know when you head out next time.

Well, fishing was great, but catching was tough. Didn't see anybody catch a thing. Saw a guy feed the snags a crank bait or three!!
I probably try to go down wed night for a bit. Can't catch at home!! If you see a gray ford with topper, it might be me. I'll be in my fly vest. Good luck on tying. It's a dying art. Don't know to many people around that do. I'll be on the ND side around 6pm or so!! Maybe see ya there.

      Yeah I'm planning and scouting starting next week.  Any help is appreciated.   Also a reminder....   You will need a new fishing license as of 3/1/19.  The warden often comes by to say "hi"  and chat for a bit at our gathering.   I would hate to have someone forget.   Especially me. 😉

      I got stuck on West Rush Wednesday.  Thanks to Nick?  P  from Rush City for helping me get out.  I couldn't budge.  Mike from Mike's towing was going to come out and rescue me but Nick saved me a bundle!  Thanks, Mike for being willing to come out on the ice.    Just wondering how travel is on Rush and Pokegama this weekend.  I will be hesitant go get out until the snow gets packed down on a bit.!!!

      Might want to have him call a realtor but I think there is something open in that strip mall behind McDonald's. A friend retired and closed his jewelry store and that spot might work good. I think it's called Pokegama  Plaza. Next to Edward Jones and Sears.

      Hey PRO V, you wouldn't happen to know of any office spaces for rent in rapids would you? My co worker is maybe thinking of moving our office up there if he can find a reasonable price and enough room for his cabinets.

      I am going to put a get together on Blue Lake in March!! I am thinking the second weekend at the time. My question is would Saturday or Sunday be best for most of you? This will be out of the north access as I have work on finding a good spot with active fish yet. Please let me know and if you are interested in helping find a spot with active fish. Thanks
