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.

      Whatever it takes to open the ring enough to get the process started.  I've just found I have a lot more control over the process with a couple small pliers and fewer pokes in the finger tips.   I've even been known to use the pliers for other things but I'm kind of creative that way.

      1-24-17 Fishing Report The fishing in the 30-33 feet of water range has been producing several limits of 14-17 inch Walleyes and Saugers with a few smaller yearlings in the mix as well. We have also seen a few perch around the 12 inch range as well as a few tulibees and pout coming up the holes. The fish have been biting more timidly so patience before setting the hook is a must. A plain red hook on a dead stick continues to produce a decent number of fish as well as using smaller jigging spoons,rattle spoons,buck shots and stop signs with glow in the dark pink,green,blue and gold being the effective colors. The hot times for the bite seem to be between 10 am-4 pm with a decent number of bites being reported between first light to 10 am. The bite in the 16-20 feet of water range has cooled off a bit with a few keepers still being brought up mixed in with a handful of yearlings. The flashers continue to be a highly recommended tool up here on LOTW as there remains to be a decent number of suspended fish being seen.  Good luck fishing on beautiful Lake of the Woods!
