    Rains last weekend brought flows up a little bit. It’s not enough to notice really on the gauges but if you are out there every day you notice it. The fish have responded to the little influx very positively. Still if you can find current you find more fish. They are still lined up on that inside shelf as well. It seems the active fish will go fairly quickly but don’t leave to fast as there might be another one along soon.

    All baits were working with frog and frozen sucker being the best. I would give the edge to sucker but I don’t think it really matters.

    The highlight ...

    Flow in Grand Forks as of this writing is 204cfs. I figure a matter of days before we go below the lows of 1988. Catfish are biting if you are patient, most of them are smaller with the occasional bigger fish mixed in. They still look kind of sick. The one noticeable difference this week from last week is the fish are lined up on inside corners near beaver houses. Generally, if you run side imaging in these areas you will see cats lined up on the third of the river near the bank. Just because you see fish on the depth finder but it doesn’t mean that they will bite so you have to keep on the move ...

    Flow in Grand Forks as of this writing is 240cfs down even more after the inch of rain a few days ago. The fish are biting if you are patient, most of them are smaller with the occasional bigger fish mixed in. That fish has a big head and is skinny and pretty sad looking. The key to fish now is work the outer edges to the middle of smaller holes where the river is narrower. If you can find spots where the river gets very narrow and creates current you should find fish. You have to try lots of spots. You can see fish on the depth finder but it doesn’t mean that they will bite so you have to keep ...

    Things are looking up this week. After attending the Cats Incredible tournament over the weekend, I am encouraged that we still have lots of fish to catch. There were many reports of good numbers of fish and a few big fish mixed in to boot. One thing stood out from most reports was that the fishing was much better early in the morning which is something I noticed earlier in the week.

    It appears you have to try lots of spots and try to find the right bait. Goldeye and day old dead sucker (packed on ice) has been the big winner the past few days. Patterning is still there really isn’t ...
