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.

      Saw on MPR that this year had been even warmer than 2012.  If this weather pattern continues, Lake V will be ice out before the March 28th date from 2012.

      Awesome fish. Way to go.

      That is a true giant slab around here.

      I did a lot of crappie fishing in 2012.   I'd say April 1 is a conservative guess. March 25 seems doable. Depends on the rain and the wind in March.

      Do you park at The Landing or have someplace closer? That would be a hall from The Landing!

      I hate to start this thread early, but this ice doesn't have much of a chance this season. It's about half as thick as it should be, there is no snow cover to protect it from the March sun, and it continues to be abnormally warm. Let's hear those ice-out predictions.   I expect the smaller bays to be open by the last weekend of March with the main lake soon after, likely prior to April 1st. Earliest ice-out on record is March 28th, 2012.   On the plus side, the spawn be done long before fishing opener. Combine the reduced walleye harvest with the longer growing season, and this should translate into a better walleye class for the lake.

      I walked into my place late Friday night. It was beautiful - a full moon, no snow and single digits so the lake was making all kinds of noise, wolves howling, and the kicker.....no wind. The only difficult component to walking was the ATV and snowmobile impressions left in the ice. Every once in a while my foot would catch a rise in the ice and I would stumble and almost fall. Besides that, it was a perfect night. Unfortunately I had a schedule to keep, otherwise I would have started a midnight bonfire to stay out and enjoy the evening even longer.
