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

      Some pockets of slush on the east end. Only came upon one spot that covered a large area, most were small spots.  Walking on the lake was not to bad, snow is light and fluffy.  I didn’t see anything that would stop me, but not sure how far of a trek you have.

      How is the snowpack and slush looking these days? I'm looking to walk into my place on the west end one of these weekends but don't want to make the trek in knee-deep powder or thigh-deep slush!
    • SkunkedAgain
      That would be a lot of work to get done in three months, assuming that they can even get a GC to line up all of the subs. October sounds more realistic. Looks like I'll have to find other ways to support the local businesses in town. I might have to send Mrs. SkunkedAgain and Miss SkunkedAgain to the girl store a few times with a wad of cash.

      As soon as humanely possible. We have a seasonal cabin that we use year-round, an no road access. Therefore like PSU, we are bound by the ice-out to determine our first open water trip. If I had road access, it would likely be determined by other factors such as snow on the driveway, etc.   If you have plumbing pipes, that is another concern. We haul in our water so I don't have to worry about pipes bursting. About six years ago, I did hook up my lake pump at opener at left it filled with water. When I came back for Memorial Day, the iron housing had cracked due to water freezing.   My general advice is to not avoid the in-between times. They are often the best. Less people are around, you get to see the land and the lake change, when the ice goes out you get to see eagles and other scavengers pick up all the floating winter-kill fish, green starts popping up everywhere, etc. It's a fun time to be in the woods and around the lake. Canoeing through ice or boating through black ice is always a hoot as well!

      Smurfy has fish with his name on them. He must have put another order into Morries.

      I know!!😊 but I ain't got anyone to shovel.😞 and after tomorrow's snow I'm hearing grumbling of a huge magor storm for the weekend.

      Does the handle fit otherwise? If so, rather than wait for the OEM to send a screw, I would most likely have gone down to my local Fleet Farm or Menards and found a SS screw to fit. I wouldn't get my shorts too much in a bunch over it.

      but are the northerns making flags go up?

      Brokie - Without knowing where you are located, I can not recommend a reel shop, is what I recommend doing.  A reel repair shop should be able to help you with your problem.  West side of the TC, Wayzata Bait and Tackle, for example.
