Where to leave truck and trailer???

Recommended Posts

If I wanted to put in at Ash River Visitor Center ... can you leave your rig there for a week or so, or do you need to find a resort that offers parking?

Thanks for responses,

Nick

Nope, you'll be fine. Just make sure you're not parked at one of the "prime" areas.

What is considered a prime area?

Ash River has parking for about 100 vehicles and trailers. There are also NPS rangers working there most of the day. It gets pretty busy and crowed during July and the first two-weeks of August. After that the traffic falls off significantly. I've left my vehicle there at least 20 times and have not experienced any security problems. I don't have any idea what a prime parking area is either.

There are 3 parking lots for rigs at Ash River, and I'll be up there for 15 of the next 21 days. No problem parking your rig there for a week. I did have one problem there about 8 years ago, had my truck keyed during a stay. Chalked it up to kids, and havn't had a problem since.

I dont have a clue what is meant by "prime" spots either.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
