Royalton area float.

6 posts in this topic

Just wondering if anyone can help me with a float up that way. I know you put in at Sportsmans but how far down is the next landing or is there another one I don't know about. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I know of two landings the sportsmans landing just north of the bridge CR 26 (nature rd) if you plan on fishing below blanchard this is the landing to use. River is shallow there and a few rapids i wouldn't be taking a large boat through there. You could also use the walk-in access at the dam on both the sides. Above the dam there is a public public access and thats the last one untill Little Falls. Hope that helps........

I know if you plan on going down river from the Sportsman landing you are better off walking instead of using a boat or canoe. You can walk across the river in some spots and not get your ankels wet.

Last week i had the lund up to the platt river coming from sartell area. Haven't explored anything between that and the sportsmans landing. The river splits right at the platt and theres a big island one side was all dried up the otherside look like rapids.... saw a riverpro go crusing up through the rapids. To shady for me to explore with the lund.

Not worried about the water levels just looking for the landings and distance between. Again, any help would be appreciated. Looked at the DNR map and looks like it might be to long of a float. Just looking for about 8 miles to float.

Thanks,

Kip

I would say from Blanchard Dam to the the platt river would be a little over 8 miles, you could get off at Two Rivers campground. From the platt to the rice bridge it's about 3 from there to St.Stephen it another 3, access at Rivers Edge. Next stop would be gordans bridge its about 4 and another 3 miles to the benton county access.

      Plus, resorts would love to have you, now that no one goes to them due to the closing of walleye fishing.

      Must of been tough to sit there looking at the lake and not fish! Can't believe it was 60 up there today!? Not what I was hoping for. Didn't hit 50 down by the cities today.

      Looking at staying at Thunderbird or Sha Sha resort.  We want to spend some time fishing the Canadian side as well.  How long does it take to get from there to the Canadian Causeway bridge?  I've got a Lund ProV with a 200hp and usually run about half throttle.

      What amoerage batteries do you have? I finally got my gearbox back from clam this week..... a little to late... I am so glad they used us for product testing and ended up screwing me out of going electric this year, I am selling it early next season and going with the k-drill
