Red River at Grand Forks- 5-29-17

Well all the crummy weather of the past two weeks caught up with the catfish and slowed things to a screeching halt. In fact this past Friday was so bad I was questioning my ability as an angler and considering a new career path. It was literally the worst day I have had guiding in years.

Things are coming back around. With the warming trends the fish are starting to move back to the normal routine and feed again. The best fish right now are coming off the soft side of the current in mid river holes. If we are on a cooling trend then they will move shallow and almost totally out of the current or go lay at the bottom of the holes. The best strategy has been move fast and often to find an active fish or two in spots. Generally if they are going to hit they do it quick. The forecast looks like more up and down for a few days then finally warming back up. As I say its time to grind em out.

I agree I was out on Sunday and they were picky to say the least but managed a few good ones.
