This spring hasn’t been conducive to catfishing on the Red River (so far), and the ramps in Grand Forks already have closed once because of flooding.
But they’re scheduled to reopen today, now that the Red has dropped below flood stage of 28 feet. The river does remain out of its banks.
The Greenway sent out an update on the ramps this afternoon, saying city crews will monitor the ramps for silt and other debris as river levels continue to drop. Lower trails in the Greenway remain closed because of the high water, but the upper trails and dog park in Lincoln Drive Park remain open.
The Red in Grand Forks was at 27.33 feet as of 1:30 p.m. today. High water usually means good fishing once conditions straighten out so let’s hope that’s the case as the river drops and water temperatures rise.
