From the Hawley area and looking to access the Red River with my boat to fish Kitties. First time for everything you know. I have read many of the posts and started to get a feel for fishing Catfish (usually chase crappies, sunnies, pike and the occaisional musky). Where is the best places to put in North of Fargo or in Fargo to get me and the two boys on some kitties. Any tips about access and fishing the stretch of the Red north of the FM area appreciated. Will hope to make a trip further north some time this month too but can run out after work in the FM area. Thanks for any help you can provide.

You can get a list of access site's from the NDG&F web site. Handy list to keep, they list all the sites on the Red there. Some are better then others by far. Some between Fargo and GF are barely ramps! I have been lobbying for MN & ND to get on the stick and get access ramps built. It has been a Tough row to how though..Uf-Da! No funds for new ramps, sorry to say.

The Fargo ramps are the best on the Upper Red River, all new or newish and well maintained.

There are 4 in Fargo, two down town at Dyke East (one above and one directly below the midtown dam) One on the North side at MB Johnson Park. One on the South end at Iwen Park (often called the Convent Landing ramp).

      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.
