For the sake of being up front. Due to rising costs of doing business we have been forced to cover some of our costs on a case by case basis. For 2022 we will start charging 4% on balances paid for with credit card. We will also have a fuel surcharge for Drayton Trips. As […]

The past weeks brought some water to the system and we are currently set to go into winter with river levels about where they are supposed to be. This is a good thing and if we get some winter we should start 2022 in good shape. In the near term I am getting ready to […]

We finally received some rain and we have water for now. The rains of that past couple weeks have brought the river up to over 1,000 cfs at Grand Forks and that is moving north. While it is still not a ton of water it is truly blessing for the fish to keep them going. […]

Due to the low water and condition of the fish I have decided to suspend guiding for the remainder of 2021 or until we get substantial rains to create some flow and get the fish feeding again. I don’t feel I can provide a true Red River experience at this time. This will best for […]

Get ready for some catfish shock. The forecast is everything we don’t want. Nice stable comfortable weather right to nasty hot. Water temps will be rising very fast into the 70s and shocking the fish for a few days and then I suspect the spawn will be close behind. In the meantime get out and […]

It’s been a crazy week for sure. We were on the best fishing of the year the early part of the week in one section and mediocre fishing in another section. Finally some much needed rain made everything cold and miserable and a huge downpour flooded one trib and nearly knocked out Drayton. So right […]

The nights are still cold but we have gotten water temps to 55. Bigger fish are starting to show up and the forecast says warmer temperatures beginning today and on. This should kick everything into high gear and get the big fish feeding even harder. Stay Tuned it is about to get crazy. To book […]

The water temperature finally reached 50 last Friday and 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 […]
