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.

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

        We have fished both days out of Vidas.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
