Public Access North of Garrison

7 posts in this topic

A friend showed me a great spot to hit the lake from in the winter. It's before you get to Red Door. Is that a good place to launch from? Is that part of the lake a good place to fish? Being a novice boater I want to ease into this big lake. Or would you recommend on using one of the resorts? Last thing is I want to take my family to the lake for a weekend. Any personal recommendations? Appreciate any info you can share.

The Access you mention is the Wealthwood access. Right now with the water levels being so low, that access is not a good choice. I have even heard rumors that it may be shut down if the water does not go up before fall. If you want to fish the north end, you would be best off launching at the Red Door for 10 bucks. Then you know that your truck and stuff is safe as well. Red Door is a nice place to stay as well. I've stayed there on 2 occasions and found it to be clean and nice. Good boat harbor and slips with dockage.

Wealthwood access is completely useless. There's only 4-6 inches of water, and not even enough water to float a small boat/get it off the trailer. North Garrison bay is still usable, although getting shallower all the time. Red Door is your best bet if you want to fish the north end.

I agree with Myr Mar, more water out in front of there than in front of Red Door.

I agree w/ MyrMar. Be careful straight out from harbor(46.19.615-93.45.911) I polished my prop on a rock that doesn't show on map

Gents,

Thanks for all the great insights. Another direction with the questioning is where other than the north side is a good place to put in? Again appreciate y'all helping me out.

Few nice gills you got there rick!

      Any reports? I know there was a lot of people out there. The boomsite access was already 3/4 full when I drove by at 5 AM. I'm thinking about going out of blufflands park on Friday.
