  1. Red River 5-12-21

    The water temperature has stayed fairly stable all week and is beginning to go up again with this week’s warm up. The water temperature as of this writing is 57. In some sections of the river this has the fish beginning to kick into high gear and in other sections it really has not made a big difference yet. It may be that because the river is extremely low and the lack of current is not spurring the upstream migration that we are used to most springs.

    The past week fishing in deeper faster water has been the key. We still have to sort through quite a few little ones to get to the ...

  3. Red River 5-6-21

    The water temperature finally reached 50 last Friday and is now holding at 54. The bite started improve a little each day. Lots of picking and pecking have some good solid hits mixed in. The big fish are coming alive right now and it appears it will only get better from here.

    There really is no pattern as there are fish to be caught everywhere. Cutbait or frogs put at the bottom using a 20-30 minute sit time is really all it takes. Try a few spot and keep moving until you find what works for you.

    We have a few more cool days and cold nights before the weather is supposed ...

  4. Red River 4-28-21

    The recent warm up of the past couple days are helping water temperatures and the forecast for the next week looks great to get things kicked off for the season. Water temperature is currently at 48 degrees. The magic number is 50-plus sustained for 5-7 days to get the big cats moving and feeding heavy. Right now, the water levels are nearly perfect for getting around. Not high and not too low.

    Catfish are being caught but the bite is spotty. Smaller fish are showing up in the shallows with the occasional big fish being caught. Bigger fish are still holed up and metabolisms are low ...

  5. New Town and West

    We put in at New Town yesterday. We were kind of flying blind, so we decided to start there and work our way west. It was 36 degree water at New Town. We marked just a few at sh**house, with no luck. We moved on to White Earth Bay. The water was around 41 degrees in the bay there, but it was pretty muddy. We fished in regardless for just a bit, with no luck. We tried a few other spots, then found a bunch of catfish on the electronice around the pipeline area. We caught a couple of those and moved on. We ended up out by Lund's Landing and found a lot of life, and water temps at around ...

  6. Sak - Steinke Bay

    Fished Saturday 4/17 out of Steinke. So first of all NDGF has done a good job cleaning out the ramp and the area around it, all the silt is pushed back - easy to load/unload. Got on the water about Noon...there were 6 to 7 trailers at the ramp. Started out fishing west side of Steinke, targeted 8 to 12 lock...cast up to shore. Switched between minnows and plastics. Water temps were between 38-42...bites were very soft...had to really pay attention...not easy on a windy day! Only caught 1 24 inch fat female and a pike. I did run over to the embankment and fish the pump house area but ...

    Took the little 16ft lund out this last weekend on it's maiden voyage. The small walleyes(10-13")were like piranha. They were eating jigs, lindys, even spinners all tipped with minnows. Did manage to get a couple bigger females that were starting to dump eggs too. The water was 42-43 degrees. Our best fishing came on sunken structure in the 18-27foot range, but there was a shallow bite it was just harder to fish it in the wind. The occasional 23+" fish out deeper made it worth staying out deep, also got some bonus perch in the 12-13" range and a few eater male walleye 14-17", ...

    Spring fishing so far is following suit from last fall up there for me. Very slow. I have only caught 2 fish between all last fall and 4 trips this spring.

  11. Mid sakakawea

    Went out and spent a couple days on the ice last weekend on the south shore access was still really good, fishing for us was pretty slow the first night we set up in 24-26 feet the perch were stacked in there nothing big probably about 9” to 5” fish, kept the kids busy, did get one 4lb northern. The next day we moved back in the bay further and moved shallower seen a few walleyes on the camera but they weren’t taking any of the rattle baits spoons or plain hook setups however. Had a few tip up hits but no hookups. First couple inches of ice was a little honeycombed but everywhere we drilled there ...

  12. Dawson Steele Area ice conditions

    Planning to take some family out fishing this week and would really like to not have to trailer the 4 wheeler. After the recent super cold snap thinking ice is probably safe for pickup driving everywhere but doesn't hurt to ask.
    The target lakes as of now are Sibley, Jasper, Silver, Woodhouse. Unless the tight lipped ice fishing nation is willing to break rank and point me in a different direction...…..
