I have never fished the red river before, and would like some info. Where's a good place near, or in fargo to put in that's pretty easy water for a 16ft deep v? Not looking for the biggest cats in the river, just enough of them to have some fun. thanks in advance for any info. Scott

Ed could give you the best advise but Johnson Park in Moorhead just North of the beetplant is probably a good spot. No dams to worry about and a fairly nice swing around and parking. Lots of the out of staters launch there when they come up for the cats.

The gate is allways open unless flooded and should be no problem now.

Good luck!

North of town from MBJ Park is a good bet, as is South from the Mid-Town Dam. The stretch South from Mid-Town to the South Dam is an easy run, and offers some good fishing. Few danger spots as most of the channel is 10' or better right now. A lot of it is 12-15' at this time. Just stay out of the drift line where the clutter fallows the channel and your going to be cool. Keep your speed down and your eyes open and to the front.

Under speed 99.9% of the time on a river, by the time your electronics see's a thumper, you just hit it. So your eyes are your biggest asset. Good polarized shades really help pick out problem areas before you hit them.

Start fishing shallow and work deeper as you approach mid day. In the heat of the day try shady flats on the inside of bends if it get really toasty out there. They may be in 3-8' especially focus near flooded grass runs.

Good fish'n!

Thanks alot you guys, I plan on spending a weekend with my brother there real soon. We have a fly in Canada trip set for the first week in Aug. Hopefully we can hit the river before that. Thanks again for the advice. P.S. just in case you are wondering my kid nicknamed me boodee when he was 2years old and it kinda stuck. Scott

      That's amazing, you have the same Avatar name as a guy who has been selling the same box on here since Sept. Did he give you a better deal then $80 bucks? 🤔

      I just purchased this from bold north outdoors,  now i have everything running off of my battery box.  Its pretty sweet.  I found them on facebook, many people make them, but after the cost of purchasing everything it would cost more then what this company is selling them for

      For portable power on the go, use a Bold North Outdoor battery box, solar panel, and a lithium battery.  You can hook up external 12v lights to the the terminal posts or a usb led light to the usb port.  Charge your electronics, and use the flash lights on the front of the box.   Many uses for this product just named a few, added a couple pictures of what I have inside of my Portable Battery Box. You can check them out on fb or just go to their website.  www.boldnorthoutdoors.com

      Back when I had to go to the barn to get a feed bucket to put my fishing gear in (which it all fit in one bucket), I could catch all kinds of nice fish with nothing more than a homemade rattle reel and a cheap jiggle stick.  As technology and equipment got better, my ability to catch fish went in the toilet.

      @Northlander   You still making rods?     mrpike, Steve makes some great specialized rods for reasonable prices.

      Striker Attack gloves look to be worth a try!  Just saw them at FF tonight - $45 if I remember correctly.   Seemed to be just the ticket; waterproof, breathable, insulated but not too much that you can’t operate.  I usually wear a large but I think an XL would be the right choice for me in that glove.   Really thought about giving them a go.  Still might!

      Thanks guys. Driving on lakes in that area with trucks sounds crazy! Wonder what goes through some people's minds.

      I just broke my last HT blues rod and cant find them locally. I just got a 13 Snitch and a 27" Ul tickle stick how do you all like these? I fish mostly sunfish these should handle the smaller tungsten jigs correct? Anything better out there I just cant justify 100 bucks on a rod I usually start with 3 rods and down to 1 by the end of the year yep I'm a klutz. The HT blues were great but just no back bone and annoying no hook holder cant expect much for 9 bucks but they sure worked good.
