Water levels are back to where they were at this time last week. Up five feet and down five feet but is starting to level off at 20ish feet in Grand Forks.  Ramps river wide should be opening soon if not already.

Catfishing is a little spotty this week but showing signs that the spawn is wrapping up.  Tight to the submerged tree stumps and root balls seems to be the best still but as fish come back from spawn and water levels become more stable I think they will be moving more to the middle very soon. Still use 5oz of sinker is the minimum to stick a bait where you want it. Give a spot a good 30 minutes so the fish have time to find the bait although sometimes fish are picking it up much quicker than that. Feel it out for what works for you.

Dead sucker remains my bait of choice. Shrimp is still working for smaller fish.

July 20th there is a tournament in Pembina and July 21st Oslo. Cats Incredible in East Grand Forks is July 26 and 27th.  Catfish Capital Challenge in Drayton ($10,000 guaranteed 1st place) is August 9 and 10.
