The Red River Fishing Forecast
Russ McVey's Guide Service offers Professional Guide Service For Bass, Bream (seasonal), Crappie (seasonal) on The Red River.
Corporate and Family groups welcome!
The early summer time patterns will start to come into place now. Try these techniques in the timber between the oxbows and the main river.
BASS~ ¼ oz and 3/8 oz white buzzbaits and darkcolored Spro Frogs tied onto Vicious Braided line will be a good producer around the shallow cover early and late in the day. Remember to look for the grass and pad mixtures when fishing this pattern.
As the sun comes up and the blade bite slows, a Bandit chartreuse black back or chartreuse and blue back crankbaits will produce some great action in the timber. If the main river is not to muddy a firetiger colored Bandit 100 series or the Bandit Flat Maxx will be a good producer. If you enjoy fishing Texas rigged plastics, try a watermelon/chartreuse creature baits rigged with a ¼ oz. worm weight. Best depths are going to be around 6 to 8ft foot.
Crappie~ Shiners and small crappie jigs tipped with shiners fished along the edge of the ridges in the oxbows should be a good bet on the Crappie. Seven to 12 feet of water with standing timber should be a good place to start.
Bream~The Bream are in full swing. Look for them in the shallow areas in the oxbows. Crickets and red worms will be the best bet.
