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.

      The shallower lakes are froze over and the deep ones are getting close.

      I need to hit Linwood up as that is a lake I fished so much with my grandpa. Used to get lots of keeper gills and nice crappies and big pike out of there.

      Lakes around Princeton are froze over or close. Lori lake had the most open water and lots of ducks. Silver lake capped over and stanchfield south and north mist froze over.

      I saw enough ice on smaller lakes in the Crosslake area to know they are getting closer and colder to icing over!

      On the main basin... For those fishing the lake, fishing has been good.  Most bays and harbors locked up with ice this past week, which has put a halt to the open water fishing.  At last report, there are good numbers of walleyes and saugers staged in traditional early ice locations across Pine Island and the entire south shore.  With fish location, numbers and fall success, LOW is primed for good early ice fishing. On the Rainy River... The Rainy River is still loaded with walleyes.  Some anglers made it out this week but single digits locked up any water not moving and it is pretty much done.  Anglers that got out had big numbers of walleyes to reward them, similar to previous week.  Up at the NW Angle... Ice is formed in back bays, harbors, on the angle inlet, from Young's Bay to Flag Island and across most of Flag Island flats.  Larger stretches of water or current areas still open.  Ice fishing will be here soon, but not yet.  Stay on staked resort ice trails when ice fishing begins.  Safety first.

      I am a maki mino guy the 1 inch ones for gills and crappies. The xl mino is great for big crappies perch and eyes. I have used many of the maki plastics but I tend to have the best luck with white with red flakes mino. The poli was good as well.
