DRAYTON, N.D.--Brad Durick watched the screen of his Humminbird Onix 10 depthfinder and saw just enough change in the bottom of the river to convince him to drop the anchor.
It wasn't much--a small midriver hole that dropped into about 10 feet of water--but the Grand Forks catfish guide was fishing a stretch of the Red known for its subtleties.
LAKE OF THE WOODS -- Generally poor fishing this winter along the south shore of Lake of the Woods and a mediocre spring season on the Rainy River wasn't the result of low walleye numbers, a fisheries biologist says.
ON THE KNIFE RIVER -- The Knife River plunged over a 4-foot drop in a froth of white, then cascaded down a riffle. The water rushed around the waders of Gary Siverson, 67, as he leaned in and told Trent Broderius, 14, where to cast his spawn bag.
CLEMENTSON, Minn. -- It was going to be a busy day for Wyatt Maas.
Wyatt, 13, was the net man. He fished, too, but he was the designated fish-netter.
Every time his dad, Todd Maas, or his grandpa, Rob Maas, tied into another Rainy River walleye, Wyatt would spring into action, wait for just the right moment and slip the net under another chunky silver and green specimen.

Law enforcement officers patrolling the Missouri River will continue to have an enhanced presence in the Bismarck-Mandan area this summer.
Robert Timian, North Dakota Game and Fish Department chief of enforcement, said last summer’s initial effort of having district game wardens and paid volunteers from county and city law enforcement agencies in the area was successful.
MONTEVIDEO — Drop a baited hook in the Minnesota River and your chances of catching a fish are better than they were 10 years ago.
Fish abundance and diversity appear to be on the increase in the river, while turbidity in the river has decreased over the past decade. The level of phosphorus — the nutrient responsible for summer algae blooms — is trending downward too.
