Where to leave truck and trailer???

5 posts in this topic

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.

      Things have become pretty hit or miss for my house out there.  I fished last week from Tuesday through Sunday; alas, school started yesterday so it's back to the real world for now.  During afternoon primetime, I caught between zero fish (yes, I got skunked one night) and 12.  Daybite was very tough (mainly because I quit fishing and either went hiking over at Kathio, tip-up fishing in the bays, or went down and looked at guns at Boone's), but the reports I heard from those fishing hard during the day made that decision fairly easy.     The overnight bite was pretty steady, with multiple fish each night coming on the rattle reels.  I pulled the lines twice because I got sick of catching 15-17'' walleyes.    Sunrise was also hit or miss.    All in all, it's not early ice anymore, that's for sure.  I'm still fishing fairly shallow, and it might be time to move the house.  Biggest fish all weekend was just under 28''.  I still have only one keeper in my current location despite catching well over 100 walleyes there in the last few weeks.  The last week or so was pretty strange...at least two nights either me or my friend caught more than 10 fish while the other guy, fishing less than 15 yards away, caught very few.  Why the fish can be loaded in one spot and non-existent a few feet away, and then switch the next night so the "hot" house goes cold, is a mystery to this fisherman. Maybe they swim counter-clockwise around the lake one night and then turn around and swim clockwise the next?

      These stats have a lot to do with it!  GF=138 GA=92 One of the highest and lowest in the NHL as of today that is huge.

      Thanks for the report!  How big were the walleyes?  Keepers? Care to share your tactics?  Time of day, how deep you were fishing, type of bait?  I'm new to metro walleye fishing and trying to hone my skills a bit.
