So, some how this river needs a little recognition. pass on the word, my brothers.:wink::smile2:

    WHAT TOWN OR DAM ARE YOU FISHING ON THE ASSINIBOINE? IS IT CLOSE TO THE CONFLUENCE WITH THE RED RIVER?
    THANKS FOR THE INFO.:big_smile:

    Brandon, Manitoba, The Assinboine river is a tributary to the Red of the North, good park near the dam too.

    I fish with three friends we have been having some good luck on the Red river too this fall since the middle of Aug we have pulled out at least 12 master Channel Cats the biggest was 37.5 " a nice fat one too :smile2: and we have caught 3 master bullheads too. and there is lots of time left we usually go Friday nights and we fish off shore.
