Fishing the Red River on Saturday?

Recommended Posts

CatManLee

Well the weekend's finally here...Now just if I can go cattin? So does anyone know if the river is fishible this weekend from a boat? Has anyone been by the north ramp today to see what it looks like? COULD YOU PUT A BOAT IN? I guess if the water is too high I'll have to go back to the days before I had a boat and fish from shore. Again, any info on the river levels would be great. And all that technical river info doesn't help me out much, such as flood levels. Is it over the banks along ways at the south ramp?I need your opinions, would you fish the red this weekend from a boat?

I know i'm probably asking this question too much, but I know someone has to have seen the river in town. Thanks again...

Well the river is pretty high.. but you could fish it if you can get a boat in there..If you had a RP, then no question.

The Red Lake River is awesome right now.. Cats, Pike, Eyes and Bass are on the eat like crazy.. Been out every days since Friday.. The rams here are **** due to no one cleaning them since spring?????????????? Nice.............

Thanks for the reply Whiskers...
I really need to try the river near crookston, just for something different. I've never fished that stretch of river, but sounds good. If they would clean the **** off the ramps, I'd be willing to give it a go!

I'm going cattin on the red this Saturday. I don't care if it's storming like a hurricane this weekend...I havent been on the Red as much as I would have liked to this year. I need to get my arms warmed up for Cats Incredible. Man I can't wait for it to come around again.

Well I'll talk to ya'll later

Wiskers last summer I called the NDG&F, MN DNR, GF tourism Dept, City of EGF, and City of GF and nicely suggested they need the ramps cleared. They had it done with a backhoe in 1 day. Drop them a call and a few emails...it helped for me..just might work for you too?

Reminding them "nicely" that Guides do offer a service to the tourism of the community, region, and state that seams to get their attention.

Hey alright! So could I get my 16 foot Alumacraft w/70hp in the water this weekend? If the river looks good for this coming weekend I'll be there. I don't know much about that stretch of river, is it a shallow stretch? does it have alot of debris, rocks, etc. etc., Or is it fairly decent to navigate? Please let me know, I would love to try that area this Saturday. I get off work at 11am Saturday and could probably be there around Noonish... If the Red River is still too high to get a boat in, Crookston sounds good to me. Is there more than one ramp in town below the dam? And last of all are there any baitshops in town with sucker minnows? I have frozen goldeye I'll bring with, but the supply is becoming limited! Well I'll let you reply to my long list of questions.

Thanks...GOOD LUCK FISHING

      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!

      As many of the other dog owners told me the third hunting season is when it comes together for lots of dogs. Finn did much better today and he got to watch a veteran dog again. I am excited to keep getting finn out hunting

      We got two ducks. We should had more but it was fun shooting. I need to keep my face on my stock. I had pass on many birds as another group moved in on top of us. I had 5 woodies locked up and I drew a bead and I saw the other guys faces. No shot as i would killed them or wounded them. They knew we there but did not seem to care.
    • monstermoose78
      Great job guys!! I got 8 shots off the first one was good then I missed 7 in a row. Gordie got one and well river rat got zero. It was a hoot to hunt with them.

      I have a 2018 ice castle with the GS trailer frame. Are you supposed to drill holes to let water out of the tubes or do the new GS trailers have holes in them already? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

      We we're done by 7 this morning.  Were set up over field goose decoys now.
