Just looking for a little info regarding water levels on the Red south of the border.
How much has she risen due too the rain in the FM region or for that matter in GF etc?

Stu I am watching it now. We should see a big rise soon...we got Boo-Koo rain the past few days on the basin. My yard is a swamp Eh.

Check this site to monitor the levels.

Stu, Water levels ten miles south of Grand Forks have went up 8 ft. I'm guessing that Fri or Sat it will be in Grand Forks. If we get anymore rain you might see more water. I'm guessing that eight feet here won't mean much by the time it gets to the wide red up there. I know that water in Fargo takes seven days to reach Grand Forks. So I'm guessing its about the same from Grand Forks to Selkirk. Hope I helped you out.

I made a trip to Cabela's this morning and the river looked a bit high, but not to bad! I don't know if it'll rise more or not. if it doesn't rise anymore, I wouldn't think the water levels would be a problem.
However, thats JUST MY thoughts on it?

Good Luck Fishing....

Appreciate the info guys!
I'm trying to get a handle on when to put my docks back in! I'd hate to put them in and next week or so pull them AGAIN! That really gets "old" if you know what I mean.
If the river rises it's liable to takes its toll on the Cats Incredible Tourney, hope that won't be the case.

Thanks again!

What does the flow and the levels look like up on your end Stu?

No significant rains here recently so the Central Red has leveled off to a bit higher then average summer levels.

I am stocking gear for next week and was wondering how much lead to tote, and cork'n do-Dads. Are you sitting preat on lead yet?

Just received a interesting package from friend over in MN. Some bait scent sprays that you and Canuck just might find usefully. Canucks favorite flavor is there, and a few more interesting ones too. I'll bring a selection up for you to check out.

Thanks Stu,

Ed,

Have a great trip up North. Be sure and give me a report when you get back. My bro and cousin are up now and my dad's going to be up in a few days with a crew from LOW. I'd suspect that you'll find plenty of critters willing to cooperate.
If you see my dad (you may have to recognize him by the fishing rods in his boat- you haven't met him yet have you?) be sure and say hello.
Have fun!

Thanks Scoot!

I'll be hitting the road here shortly. I will keep an eye out for you Pop and the crew.

Who are the other guys up there now, what do they drive so I can look for them? Maybe I can raid their hopper stash if they have any left when they leave. LOL!

Drop me a call Scoot on my cell number. 701-640-9986.

Things to do yet so I better get a Hop'n Eh.

I'll fill you in when I return.

      Any smallmouth reports?

      Well I went out Sunday of opening weekend. Ugh. I felt like I was hunting the Congo! So darn hot and buggy. Thank god for thermacell! I did pass on a small 3 pt. It was fun to watch him, he was making rubs on trees all over around me. I'm actually glad nothing else came out, dealing with it in that heat would have taken a lot of fun out of the process.

      i've been up on Sandpoint a number of times that late in the year. I always focused on main lake drop off. especially sand if you can find it. Walleyes, big crappies and smallmouth will all be congregated in those areas. One spot I fished dropped off into 70 feet. I usually fished 20-30 ' depths oh, I should mention. Usually we used lindy rigs with minnows. Jigs did work too. especially if you slowly drop it and feel the strike on the fall.

      Unfortunately that’s the norm at just about every popular community spot on lakes/rivers. I fished the zumbro river this past opener, and filled up the back of my truck with discarded bottles and cans. While litter certainly isn’t pretty to look at, it doesn’t mean the river is polluted.

      There is a new scale introduced this year by Rapala and it is better than the other ones because of one simple change: instead of the metal hook there is a clip.  This is what they use in tournaments.  It has a locking mechanism that hooks to the lower jaw.  The hook sucks.  Always has, always will.  Sticking a metal hook up inside the gills of a fish to weigh it is a terrible idea, plus they can shake off and then smack on the floor and die.  Skip the hook, use the clip.

      Both types of minnows are working. Crawlers are still getting most of our fish in some locations. Cliff

      Guys what I was trying to say with my last post was, That I was in the wrong place, Because this is about Vermilion Lake. If you scroll to the top. Under that blue strip you can find the topic of this form It says Quote "Vermilion-Pelican Lake-Chisholm-Cook-Ely-Eveleth-Hibbing-Orr-Virginia Fishing Reports  Water Level"  That's how I know I'm in the wrong Place!    -Best of luck Fishing.

      You guys catching them on pike suckers or chubs?  Hopefully the wind dies down this afternoon.  Coming up with a big group to help me do the docks and 2 of the hoists.  I have the requisite adult beverages need to get them some fish for the frying pan.
