Are there any places to access the Red Lake river for wading between GF and crookston?

Most any of the tribs are good to fair wading, or at least shore walking.

The big deal with the Red River basin rivers is the loom and silt, tough wading. It is more like quicksand or unset cement, tough going.

Bank walking is about as good as you get once you leave the headwaters region.

Well the best for fishing that sort is between Crookston and Fisher..

The river is very low now and good for that. From Fisher to EGF is much deeper.

A lot of good sandbars and rappid water near Crookston now.. Even the RP has a tough time here now.. Its white Knuckle rides here.. LOL.. .

Yep, that's my ol' stompin' grounds right in there. Fisher is where I grew up (not that I ever really grew up).
I have to admit, with that name, I'm struggling to help you out. Go Bison!

If you want to do some snooping, there's lots of great spots to discover. Wiskers is definitely right- the Fisher to EGF stretch of that run is deeper than the Fisher to Crox part. Lots of good shore fishing though in both stretches.
Keep in mind that the rules and regs of ND don't apply to MN. If it's not posted, you still can't go there if it's attached to ag land (which everything is over there.) If you want to fish, start rapping on people's doors. I'd strongly advise you to not try going on land without permission- tons of people who will get crabby with you very quickly. Too many problems with *****s hunting on their land without permission in the past for most.
Good luck! If you really want some super detailed information, I'll gladly help you out if you promise to purchase some season tickets for Bison athletics!!! grin.gifgrin.gifgrin.gif

One other thing, if you'd like to hugely increase the learning curve, hire Wiskers for a day or even a half day. He's snooping around those waters every day and knows them well. He'd save you a ton of time and effort and teach you a lot in the process.

      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.
