Stillwater Access

4 posts in this topic

How is the access on the north end of stillwater looking? I was thinking of doing some evening/night fishing in a couple weeks and am wondering if I should go there or launch down at prescott instead.

The whole river is really low right now, especially upstream. But the boom site access drops off pretty good at the launch, so you shouldn't have any problems with a "normal" fishing boat. Just be extra careful in the shallow areas between the access and the main channel, and near the narrows and islands if you go upstream.

Problem with Stillwater is, it seems it is always full. Try to stay away from this on the weekend. Midweek is not near as bad.

Yeah, it would be during the week. How is the bite at night? What are people catching under the bridge? Any after dark silver action at the marina?

      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
