Any activities at red rock? Planning to come down and give it a try. Was there end of March and was cold with no fish.

Crappie fishing is slow with a few fish being caught in 3 foot of water or less. The fish being caught are good sized from 10 to 12 inches.

Because of the heavy rains fishing has generally slowed in the past week. Should really help it pick-up in the next week or so when things settle out.

White Bass - Excellent: The white bass bite is excellent trolling crankbaits with black/silver color combinations to imitate shad. The better fish are 15 to 17 inches.

Channel Catfish - Good: The channel catfish bite is good using fresh cut bait. White Bass - Good: Good reports are coming still from anglers that are fishing above the mile long bridge and up the Teter Creek arm. White bass are being picked by covering water and trolling crankbaits. There was excellent shad reproduction this year. On calm days look for gulls and/or shad breaking the surface. Wiper (Hybrid Striped Bass) - Good: Anglers fishing white bass that are busting shad are also hooking into good numbers of wipers.

The reservoir draw-down is currently in progress and the lake level may drop more than one foot per day until desired level is reached for maintenance work. Boaters should use caution as they may not be able to boat where they had a day before. Channel Catfish - Good: Catfishing on Red Rock is the best it’s been all year. Drifting cut bait is working best. White Bass - Excellent: The best white bass fishing right now is occurring below the Red Rock spillway throwing anything from jig and twisters, crankbaits, or spoons. Some white bass are still being caught at the Roberts Creek spillway, but decreased flow from Roberts Creek has slowed the fishing at this location.

White Bass - Fair: The white bass bite is still good right now below the spillway throwing anything from jig and twisters, crankbaits, or spoons. Crappie - Fair: Anglers fishing minnows under a bobber or small jigs below the spillway in slack water are picking up some crappie. Walleye - Slow: Anglers are picking up some walleyes below the spillway with jig and twisters or jig and minnow. Most have been on the smaller side, but some good fish are mixed in.

How is the fishing in August (land fishing)? My brother and I plan to come down in August 12 to do some wiper fishing, along with with some cats. Is it to late in the season for wipers? Also is there any camp ground that is on the lake, or close by? Any information would be helpful. We live in MN, we don't want to drive 5 hours just to get skunk. So again any information would be much appreciated. Thanks. laugh

    • I agree.   I have said in the past, i learn to be a better hunter when they aren't easy.  Turkeys seem to become an obsession if you allow yourself to let them get in your blood! Love the chase.
    • ya but its fun! It was nice getting out i am learning alot watching them and being out there gets me more experience since i shot mine this year after being out a total of probably 6 hours for two days
    • Frustrating buggers aren't they!
    • well gobbled like crazy in the morning finally got a hen to come out she came 1 foot away from blind. Then 4 more came behind her 2 toms and 2 hens then the hens went back to the woods and one tom followed the other tom stayed in the open strutting back and forth just out of range then a crane came and he strutted at that then a goose came and he strutted at that they all came out just out of range and cut to our side. They sat there strutting at each other and couldn't get them to come in. One of them came back started walking to our decoys once again just out of range. Uncle tried to get out and go through the dirt bike track he's currently laying on top a jump within 60 yards of them no other options to sneak he chose the wrong way to go should have crawled against the burn... Man these buggers suck going to change blind spots next time know where they roost and see where they strut on the property. should of had a fan decoy out I bet that would have drawn them in
    • Well our lilacs were just starting to bud out yesterday and I was thinking we should go take a peek today. Unfortunately we got 2 inches of snow overnight and it's still coming down! I'm pretty sure Hubbard county will have to wait at least a week to ten days with the temps forecast.
    • Sorry...no excuses BB...the better team did win....4-1. Lucky for the Wild that Statsny was not playing from the start or it woukd have been a sweep. Love the fact that the national hockey gurus are ripping the Wild right now..and read local Souhans article pretty much what I've been saying. http://m.startribune.com/wild-again-not-good-enough-when-it-matters/420167633/ While Chicago is telling it like it is...the Wild are sending the wrong message...and Chicago has 3 cups in recent past....6 overall...pretty obvious which organization is trying to win the cup every year and which one is happy just "selling tickets".
    • Got off to a late start, but was able to get to the lower river at 6 AM. Frost covered the ground, as temps were barely above freezing. I could hear turkeys gobbling as I walked through the field. Once I made it to the wooded river valley, the sound of grouse drumming echoed through the woods. Eagles and ospreys continually flew over my head throughout he morning. The water was mabye a couple inches high, and somewhat cloudy, but was noticeably clearing as the morning progressed. 8 o'clock seemed to be the magic hour, as that's when I caught most of my 13 brown trout. Biggest was 16 inches, and had a few swipes from some dandies as well. Beautiful morning to be on the river!
    • So i have experimented with a bunch of brands to see which ones walk the best .... of coarse it depends on fisherman, rod & line being used.   7"2" Cabelas bass rod medium heavy tourney rod,  power pro 45# ...here is the order of best walking frog that worked for me off the dock.   1.  Terminator frog 2.  Bobby's perfect frog (pretty close to terminator) by snag Proof 3.  Spro frog (ok) 4.  KVD frog  (took some work) 5.  Booya pad crasher (teririble)   These are the ones i own ... terminator and snag proof where effortless!!!    
    • Running and gunning!   Congrats!
