Default Updates on Red Lake?

I was wondering what the fishing is like right now. My family is heading up the first week of August and staying at Howey Bay Resort. Where are the fish at? Has anyone caught any trophies? Thanks

My wife and I are heading up the last week of July and I'm wondering the same thing. We will be staying at the west end at Bow Narrows Camp.

People don't fish Red lake any more. Fished out! Natives net the lake, fish size and count are way down, its not good. A 10 day walleye count with the largest being just under 16" is a good day. Guessing this is why you can't get anyone to give a report. Best of luck!

Just spoke with a Red Lake lodge owner. He would neither confirm nor deny native netting. We will see first hand as we're booked there July 27.

I'm certainly joking on my previous post. Amazing no one responds with Red Lake reports. I'd assume the fishing is incredible. Many 100 fish days, loads of walleye and northerns. Occasional trout are being caught and hopefully released.

Best of luck! I'd love to hear a fishing report when you guys are back.

Checked with a Red Lake and a Gullrock lodge owner. While there has been a mayfly hatch their guests are still catching well.

We leave tomorrow morning for Ft. Francis en route to Howey Bay Resort on Saturday. Has anyone fished Red Lake in the last week and is willing to share how they did?

My wife ad I fished Red Lake the last week of July. Over all the fishing was GREAT. Total fish count was down a little but numbers on big fish was up. It seemed we were catching fish a little deeper than we have the past few years

We fished Red Lake July 27 to Aug 3 out of Sunset Lodge. Fishing was good early in the week until the weather changed to very hot and windless.
We had trouble catching fish in the 16'-18' range. Lots of little fish, some big ones. While at Sunset a young lad from Iowa caught a 29.5" and 30" fish.
