Tons of cats there. If you can get out to the railroad pier on the west side of the main channel, You will catch all the cats you want. We always used a canoe to get there from the west side. As far as directions, take 26 west from Royalton til you cross the river. You will turn right on 52 (Great River Rd, which is right after you cross the Miss. bridge) and go north until you hit the railroad tracks. Take a right and you are there.

toddb, have you ever used the access on the East side? They have done a lot of work on that in the last few years. The grade is alot easier to bear if you hauling a canoe....

We lived on the west side of Little Falls so that is the direction we always came in from. Haven't fished there alot since I moved from Little Falls a few years back. The only part of the east side thing with the canoe is going across the main channel in a canoe crazy.gif. I guess I'm a chicken, especially in a canoe. It was always a good time catching cats down at blanchard.

later,

      Leftover spring turkey permits go on sale March 20 The 105,464 leftover permits for the 2017 spring turkey hunting season will be sold on a first-come, first-served basis beginning Monday, March 20 at 10 a.m. Leftover permits will be first issued for sale by zone, one zone per day. The following zones have leftover permits, and scheduled sales dates are as follows: Zone 1 - Monday, March 20; Zone 2 - Tuesday, March 21; Zone 3 - Wednesday, March 22; Zone 4 - Thursday, March 23; and Zones 5, 6 and 7 - Friday, March 24 (due to the low number of permits left in these units, sales have been combined into one day). After zone-specific sales, all remaining turkey tags will be made available for purchase Saturday, March 25. Extra turkey tags can be purchased at a rate of one per day until the zone and time period sells out or the season closes. Leftover turkey permits cost $10 for residents and $15 for non-residents – each will have equal opportunity to purchase over-the-counter permits. All hunters are required to purchase a spring turkey license and 2017 Wild Turkey Stamp, unless they have previously purchased the license and stamp or are a 2017 Conservation Patron License holder. Leftover permit purchases will not affect preference point status for future spring or fall turkey permit drawings. Leftover permits can be purchased online through GoWild.WI.gov   and at all license agents. Hunters with any questions regarding permits should contact the DNR Customer Call Center, open 7 a.m. through 10 p.m., seven days a week, at 1-888-WDNRINFo (1-888-936-7463).
