Wild River State Park Access

5 posts in this topic

I was thinking of maybe doing some wading for smallies/walleyes out of that access there at the mouth of the sunrise. How is the water level? Would this be a good place to target these 2 species?

The Croix is really low right now. I was on the river from st. croix falls up to nevers dam last weekend. Ended up camping near nevers. The sunfish were really cooperating, but not much else. Noticed lots and lots of canoers in the upper stretch (near the lower state park access). I was on the croix two weeks ago near franconia, and watched two small kids at the access walk all the way across the whole river without going under.

The low water doesn't bother so much as I'll be on foot, I'm just wondering if it's put a funk on the fishing? I've never had very good success with decnt sized fish in drought conditions.

It's been slow. I heard it's the same on the lower snake, too.

I was up at the sunrise last sunday. Water is low, had some luck early in the AM, smallies redhorse etc.

If you go, please bring a trash bag, people have been slobs around there. I pulled out a load myself, but lots of sh*t on the shore.

      Well I know many of you are not going to believe me but I went out side (I have no clue why) and looking in the grass and saw what looked like a bunch of small twigs. Well they weren't sticks they were night crawlers! I grabbed a bucket and was able to grab 8 of them that was the first time I've got any for a long time so I missed a lot as I was way too slow went out a few minutes ago and there was none. I got them all around 7pm. Texted buddys and none of them believed me a few pictures turned that around. They all went looking and they found none must have been my area the hot spot maybe? Not really ice fishing related but its the middle of February not july finding some thawed dirt was a bit tricky either froze or mud after digging around I found some good stuff. Hoping the ice holds up and it will be safe for next weekend I'm going to have to try them for gills maybe. I've never used crawlers in the winter any of you? I've still got lots of waxes though. Now I fell I'm rambling but felt I had to share this!
