Harddrives Pond

11 posts in this topic

Had a great day canoing from St. Cloud to Clearwater yesterday. Caught many smallies along with a few cats and walleyes. Never got feet wet the entire trip. Was suprised with the number of people on the river. Here's the question. Who has info about the Harddives pond just after the golf course. I heard it was closed off from the Miss. many years ago and had an old timer telling me about the fish that used to be in there. We just walked up the bank to it and saw smallies and sunfish swimming. The water was nice and clear but didn't go in cause I'm guessing you're not supposed to. Anyone ever fished it, you can e-mail me below if you'd rather not post.

35 feet for center of the road, or water accessable make its legal to fish, other then that. ASking people who live on the pond its by far the best thing to do.

As I recall there is a chain-link fence around the property you are talking about. I also believe there are No-Tresspassing signs. And I know for a fact, not even long time employees with Hardrives, even think about fishing there. Another forbidden fruit.

I think what you might want to think about is, this is a piece of property that is OWNED by Harddrives, and that they are trying to run a business there. I hope that we could just respect the company for providing us with good roads to drive on and not expect them to have to worry about who is driving in and out of their property.

I don't think anybody is asking to drive on the property. The guy was wondering if anybody knew anything about fishing it. No tresspass signs kinda answers that question.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
