Catfishing is kicking into high gear this week. Numbers are still a little bit lacking but the average size makes up for it. Bigger fish are in or near the fastest visible current you can find right in the middle of the river. Still sit on spots at least 20 minutes and don't be afraid to make small moves.

Sucker has been the bait of choice for me with literally nothing hitting goldeye this week for me. Be sure to keep experimenting with all baits to find the taste of the day.

River conditions look great right now and that should keep improving the fishing in the weeks to come.

Brad, are you using frozen sucker right now or fresh sucker? Gonna head out there this weekend and do some bank fishing near the north dam. Gonna probably switch between sucker and chicken liver depending on what's producing.

I've found frozen sucker to work just fine!

I have been running fresh only the past week but with as hot as the water is I bet frozen might get some fish. I have not caught a fish near the ramp area in a few weeks so.... I'll be out both mornings Saturday and Sunday then down to the weigh ins at the tourney in the pm.

I'll be in the Fargo area on Thursday. I'm hoping my work schedule will allow to me to get a couple hours of fishing in. I will be shorebound, so hoping one of the dam areas is good.

@riverbasher

The water is really low right now which makes the north dam a little tricky. There's downed trees, tires, and all sorts of crap to hang up on. Downstream of the dam a way (maybe 50-100 yards) has been fairly productive.

The midtown dam is inaccessible due to construction on 2nd street but the south dam is truly a hidden gem if you don't mind a bit of a hike and bring bug spray. Mosquitos have been getting bad recently.
