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.

      We have been up since Saturday and all we got are small walleyes.  Very windy today.  Hope wind goes down

      Quite a bit slower today. Only saw 2 teal between yesterday and today, which  really surprised me and most of the wood ducks seemed to have moved on. Didn’t stick around long enough for the geese. Hope everyone had a great weekend and good luck!

      How is it going today

      Carp30, Vermilion is starting into the fall transition period now that the water is cooling down. The bite can be either great or tough during this period. Yesterday we caught walleyes as deep as 44' and as shallow as 10'! Location and time of day is the key! We caught walleyes deep using short snell Lindy rigs,( 2 ft.), with minnows, The shallow walleyes hit best on the same rigs using 1/2 crawler. Sand and rock mix or transitions are the key areas right now. Necked down areas that have deep water and adjacent sand flats are almost always good now. Cliff

      If  my memory serves me correctly , yes you can . I believe that we were able to safely walk a 16ft boat through the short stretch of current . When we did this it was warm part of summer and we were in shorts and just had a pair of tennis shoes on when we walked the boat up stream which was about a 30 yard or so pull .Now if you would attempt this during colder weather like now , I’m sure a pair of knee length rubber boots would be sufficient . Very beautiful clear water with awesome scenery . Walleye , Smallmouth , and Lakers .

      Has anyone fished North Lake before? Lakefinder says there’s a navigable waterway there via Gunflint Lake. However, the map shows rapids in between Little Gunflint and Little North, with a short portage. Just wondering if I could get a boat in there.

      Have got out 3 evenings so far.  Seeing deer only one of those evenings.  4 deer Monday evening with a fawn buck and a small 1 and half old buck coming within range.   Woods and fields are changing fast.

      Good opener on the water in the Mankato area. 3 wood ducks and 2 geese. Little guy’s first opener, we left at 10:00 and he wanted to stay longer than I did!
