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!

Well the Red and Red Lake are realy dropping fast.. over the weekend it dropped over a foot here.. The Red Lake is almost a crick now.. The Red in GF is starting to get very low, some sand bars showing up below the dam down river too... Better start saving water Stu...

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.

Ed

      How about a digital photo frame in the shack.

      I remember the picture you are talking about, but I think it was last year some time and I just don't think I could wad through all of Duff's politic fall out to find it!  😵   One of my buddies put up those adhesive backed thin cork-board squires on two of his cabin walls. Pretty fun idea of his family growing up at the cabin.  With fishing, hunting pictures mixed in.

      Looks like their still running the small motel. Hope they rebuild it was a pretty nice place when they remodeled a few years ago.

      Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup were pretty much ice free this past weekend.  Spring Bay has ice as it's really protected.  Some ice in Richie but the west wind on Monday pushed it all to the east end.

      Sounds like cost/benefit analysis is underway...

      I tried finding the pic @Duffman posted of the board he put together for his basement/bar I think it was but no dice.  Too much for me sift through.  It was pretty cool though and maybe in line with the OP’s idea.   @leech~~, got some time and mad search skills to dig that one up?

      How is the ice build-up coming along? I can't wait until Head-O-Lakes and Wakemup freeze so that I can get to my place across the ice. I'm hoping for another low-slush year.

      Jim Zupancich, who works out of the flagship store in Ely, said the Zup’s in Cook has been in business for more than 20 years. He added: “We do OK there. It’s a living. We’ll get back on our feet.”   Jim didn't give much of an endorsement but I understand the economics. One of the early articles had the store manager saying that they would rebuild. A later article quoted one of the Zupancich's saying that they would assess the possibility of rebuilding. I think that we all hope that they will rebuild, and hopefully they had good insurance to make it an easy choice.

      As of mid July nothing was going on there. I drove in there, think I parked in the bar!

      Picked up a new supply of pretreated cleaning patches and some Blackhorn loading tubes tonight at Shooting Sports.   I’m just dabbling with getting things ready but the more I do, the more motivated I get to go.  Too bad you’re so wrapped up in hockey this time of year that you can’t really get into it now!  Good to spend time with the kids but ignoring the call is tough.
