Red Fleet Reservoir

Fishing report

  • Rating: Good
  • Conditions: Fishing is good for bass, rainbow trout and small walleye. Anglers are catching a few big walleye too. Boats have been able to get on in the mornings, but they are often pulled out because of afternoon winds. Many return in the evening. The best bank fishing is near the dam and in the east bay during the early morning hours. Try fishing a worm and marshmallow or worm and floating bait a couple of feet from the bottom.
