Lewiston Sportsman Club

15 posts in this topic

The Lewiston Sportsmans club hosts sporting clay shoots 4 times a year. The 3rd shoot was supposed to be last Sunday morning, the morning of the floods. The club is at the bottom of the hill just outside of Stockton. You have to cross a little creek to get to the club. I'm just wondering how it faired during the flood. I hope it wasn't washed away, its a nice club and range. Anybody have any info?

After seeing what I saw today, I would venture to guess that the little bridge that you cross is gone. Just my guess, I have not been there to check it out. I don't think that the bridge could have taken the divulge of water that was thrown at it. I saw some larger bridges and some major roadways totally gone.

One of the flood victims, John Micheel from Lewiston, was very involved in the Lewiston Sportsman Club.

The Mcheels were good family friends of my in-laws. Mr. Lorenz was also getting pretty darn good with the taxidermy work.

Dumfries Sportsmans club is located on highway 60 about 5 miles west of Wabasha. Its approximately 45 min from Rochester. It gets most of its shooters from Wabasha and Lake City. We shoot anywhere from 7-14 rounds a night. This year has been light averaging about 7 rounds a night. We have a five post set up and there usually isn't a long wait. We will do special round upon request, (flushing 5, wobble, doubles) as long as we have enough to fill a sheet. The special rounds are usually shot last. I can post directions if anybody wants them. However, the trap season is winding down. We shoot into September until the numbers get too low to open.

There is a special Duck tower shoot on Labor Day starting at I believe 1:00 p.m. The birds are launched from a rear tower about 35 feet in the air. You shoot with a partner under some Burlapped PVC pipe blinds, a true pair is sent out and you have as many shells as the two of you can fire to get the bird. Its a blast, you can easily shoot 75-100 rounds per round.

FYI i was down there last week (lewiston sportsman club) and was unable to get through because of a large tree that had fallen across the road. I went down there again today and the archery range is totally wiped out, and i was unable to get to the rifle range, or the trapshoot area because part of the road had collapsed. However the buildings are still standing.

Due to the sun going down sooner we we are starting earlier.Rumor has it there will be free brats afterward for shooters who attend,byobeverage for after the guns are put away.

      Went out yesterday in between honey dos.  First sunny day in several days.  Hooked up on a good sized bunch of brown fish in 5 FOW.  They were enjoying warmer water, 55F, on a chunk rock spot. Caught the females first with the largest around 4 lbs then a few smaller males came to the boat.  All caught on plastics.  Went back out late after the last chore to catch an eye for supper.  No luck on eyes but the pike enjoyed a few minnows.

      Good luck out there.  I'll try to make some time to stop over.

      The reason I asked @eyeguy 54 is during the day that ramp parking lot at Cathedral is always full of student parking. Can't understand how they get away with it. During the week prior to Governor's Opener we never had any issues during the weekdays, but now on school days, we just launch at Wilson Park. BTW, did you find any walleye on the down current sides of the sandbars in that stretch?
    • Walleyeslayer25
      We use to go there until a few years ago. Now we are right next store. I couldn't figured out how to get into my old account so I had to make a new one. My old screen name was deershooter.  
    • Neutz68
      Yep that's us... Cabin #2 and #3...  You part of the other group we chat with up there??

      Thanks for the reply.  Have had much time for research this year. Do you usually stay at pine tree cove?

There are ten available seats on the council. The council meets about five times per year at various North Shore locations. Council members receive travel reimbursement and serve 60 to 70 hours per year while fulfilling a two or three year term. All adult Minnesotans are eligible to serve. Anyone interested can apply online at the Minnesota Secretary of State website or download a paper application. For more information about the Coastal Program’s work and service area, see the program webpage.
