Will be on the Red River in September for the first time. Any suggestions on what to use and where to go? Appreciate any input.

I've never fished the Red but spent the majority of my life fishing the Ouachita over around Monroe so I have a lot of experience fishing rivers in general. That being said, see if you can find video on You Tube of the Bass Masters Classic and other majors on You Tube fished from the Red, I see a lot of things that I did on the Ouachita in those videos. I also watched the 2014 Bass Champs Championship last week that was fished there, you'll learn a lot. It has some really good info as well and can probably be viewed on the WWW somewhere......River fishing is whole different ball game from lake fishing.......

Red River South, don't really have to get into the main river channel. Gold bladed spinners, shad color cranks and buzz baits. You can run down river to the rock jetties and go back into the oxbows, may find some clearer water. Be careful out there, lots of downed trees and sand bars just under the surface.

That's something that is very dangerous about river fishing especially in periods of heavy rain; "FLOATERS", be aware they can be there at anytime, usually whole trees just under the surface caused by current under cutting the bank. The jetties too...on the Red. As far as I know there aren't any on the Ouachita...Also tight river bends can hide on coming traffic. I had a cruiser yacht almost flip me north of Monroe from the wake it was making if I had been going slower it probably wouldn't have been an issue.......

And with the recent floods, the sand bars are everywhere - also just under the surface.

Not much vegetation left but it is trying to come back. We caught several on the jetty coming out of RRS on t rigged lizards and square bills Sat morning, they we scattered but bite was good.
