River Access

7 posts in this topic

Say hi to the new guy. I have fished the St. Croix quite a bit over the years, but never below the Kinni.

Where is a good place to launch on the MN side?

Thanks for the info. I have a park sticker as I fish Square Lake. The 6 am opening seems a bit limiting...nice to be on the water early.

St. Croix is a very popular access. I have been launching there for over 20yrs.

Hey Guys

Been out of town lots lately but I'm ready to hit my home waters again-I know the Bluffs ramp can get a little dicey this time of year with water levels- Anyone hitting trailer bottoms when launching yet -Thanks

It seems like this time of the year, or when ever the water is low, alotta people back in the water too far. The way that ramp drops off when the water is low means that you only need the very back of the boat in the water. Every boat and trailer that I've had slides right off w/o even getting close to hitting bottom, and I have never scraped a trailer. Just my 0.2.

It does make for some hilarious times though. I saw a Suburban up to the back gate in the water to launch a 14' fishing boat the last weekend. I was suprised it pulled out. I know it's not nice, but I do get a certain amount of pleasure when I see someone bust up their pretty ski/wakeboard boats though. Or the vehicle pullin it. I've seen a guy hit one with the other. Hee Hee.

      Well never made it to Monticello but did make it to the rum 2 smallies one 17inch and one 14 inch One on float and fly black and blue jig other on a white berkley gulp jerk shad.   And you can target walleyes and smallies every winter with a long rod you just need to know where to go

      Hi all new to the forum, only have 2 days left for fishing the elusive eyes.  Any input on depths and lakes to go on in the Detroit Lakes area would be great

      I'm thinking the same thing!  When will I get another chance to target walleyes and bass with a long rod in February!

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps
