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.

March 25, 2021- The Ice if Off

The ice is off at Grand Forks today. If the forecast holds we will be fishing cats in just a couple weeks. In my experience a cold snap will put a hold on that but one never knows this year. I realistically can see starting guiding the last week of April at the rate we […]

March 14, 2021- Its Time to Get Booked

There has been no change in winter. The ice will be off the river very soon allowing for boat traffic. This is going to warm the water and make for a very early start to the season. I am anticipating very great fishing right out of the gate. We have lots of early openings available […]
