Didn't know they planned on doing that one. Haven't even heard anything until I seen this post. I'll check around and see if I can find out anything.

I spoke to the folks at Riverkeepers here in Fargo and it sounds like Drayton isn't in the works for redoing. Apparently, there are forces at work that will fight it up there. Christine is next on the list. After that, I'm told plans haven't been laid out specifically beyond the fact that they'd like to have a clear waterway from South to North.

Well if that is the case, what is the purpouse of the thousands of $$ being put into the other rock dams along the Red??? Their main objective is allow fish to migrate.. well... If they dont do all of them then..... it appears to be all in vain.???

Hummmmmmm something seems to be amiss here.. Hope it gets worked out.

From what I gleaned from the conversation with River Keepers, they plan on doing all of them. It's just that they don't have a specific plan on any dams after the next one. Sounds like $$$ is the bottom line- they need somebody to pony up and the
state(s) are getting sick of being that somebody.

Thanks there Scoot. I guess I can live with it the way it is for awhile longer, I've been fishing there along that strech for so long I got her figured out pretty good by now. I kind of don't want to see it changed. Some of the worlds easiest fishing can be had on the Red river there for sure!!!

Scoot you gonna hit the pond on opener?

I don't know yet. I'll probably not fish on opener again this year. I get a lot of crap for not getting out that weekend, but it's amatuer weekend and I not mature and patient enough to wait/avoid/hide from all the once per year rookies. I guess I'm getting crochety in my old age. I should be up a week or two after that though.

Scoot, your talking old let me tell you a little something. Now I can't remember what I was going to type. Guess It just slipped my mind. See what happens when you get old.

      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!
