Lower Red Lake

Recommended Posts

Fish-on

I'll try to answer your questions, and maybe others can add more specifics. I am told by people who have been on Lower Red that it is deeper and has more structure. Don't know much about the details. Yes there is current between the lakes, but it is more wind dependant than water flow dependant. I do not know of any plans in place to open it to reservation guided trips, although there are some people in the Res that support the idea.

It would be a kick to fish it someday just because of the mystery, but I will not be heartbroken if I never do.

I read in the bemidji paper that they had talked about building a casino and spotfishing resort on a prime spot thay have been saving.The report was in the bemidji paper dated sept 20th 2002 in the outdoor section.

Come summertime can a guy take his boat,, with no fishing stuff of coarse,, over on the res. side or maybe even on lower or do you have to be an reservation member?? I would just like to do some sight seeing.

Yes, I know it's off limits, but I have a couple questions that perhaps someone could answer:
1. Is Lower Red as shallow as Upper Red? Same type of (or lack of) structure?
2. I've heard rumors that Lower Red may be opened up soon for Reservation guided trips. Is this true?
3. How deep does the channel get between Upper and Lower Red Lakes? Is there a current?

Thanks for your replies. Sometimes, curiosity gets the best of me.

The Red Lake Reservation is a another nation, you cannot enter there. Other then that Fish-On said all I know.

Kelly, Do you think any crappies come up from the lower to replace the ones harvested from the upper?

My opinion is that they move back and forth depending on water temps, time of year, etc..

      Anyone have any luck around stuntz bay seven sisters area lately?

      I heard the guides are on to the walleye bite on the west end, finally the fish have returned and it appears there's a few good year classes.

      @Tom Sawyer Its not supposed to be that way.  Is it??  It stinks when everything else gets in the way of spending some time on the water. 😒

      I couldn't agree more Jarrid,  modifying the possession/ catch limits would probably help preserve and enhance the fishery. Several years ago when I was still living in the St. Cloud area, there was a lake outside of Albany that a  couple of year classes of Croppies came into their own. After  the increased pressure of both one hard and the following open water season  that lake saw, it was like  the Dead Sea after that.  Personally, if I find an active school, I won't keep my limit, just enough for a meal with the family.

      To call this summer "busy", would be the understatement of the year for me.....

      Been out of town for most of my fishing as well.  Looking forward to being in the boat around home in the coming weeks.  It’s just never for the amount of hours I get on board for the out of town trips.  More like 2-4, maybe 6 hours at best here.  Never the marathon 12-15 hour days I’ve been blessed to have a few times this season so far. I did just walk down to the river to make a few casts for my evening fix and picked up a 17.5 smallie on a Pop R.  That’ll have to do for today. 😉

      Was up on the big V for the last week with the family.  First time for all of us on the lake.  And for a newbie, it was really tough fishing all week long.  We did better than every group we talked to in our resort, but that is not saying much.  Because of weather and other things, we fished for on 5 days, and managed just about 5 limits of Walleye total.  Was a great week to be on the lake though, what a beautiful lake, and everything else was awesome.  Just need better information for next visit.

      Thanks for the compliment.  I've been up in the Cass Lake area the past few weeks.  Did very well on eyes but really struggled to find the crappies and I wasn't alone.   
    • osok
      This surprises me Borch.  5-6 years ago when I was  living in the St. Cloud area, if you looked up "Mr. Consistency"  in the dictionary, your mugshot would come up.  Things must be all whacked out.

      I am a catfish guy, but until now, i was unaware that i can legally use small bullheads for bait. However, I have never actually targeted them before, so i am just wondering if anyone knows of any "hotspots" for bullheads (if there is such a thing)
