The only one that i know of in the area from Stillwater to Prescott is just north of Stillwater right off hwy 95.Everything else in that section is a paylaunch.

Depends on the craft. If you have a smaller boat then there are a couple landings north of Stillwater. One just north of town by boomsite, one up the road in marine and the next one just off of 95 south of Taylors falls. Get a county plat map and check out the maps or I believe the fishing hotspots map has them located. If you are looking to launch a bigger boat say 18 or better then I'd stick to the marinas and pay ramps as they have better landing areas and typically deeper water. Most of the marinas up and down the river have pay launches. The boathouse in Bayport is decent, Beanies has nice facilities as well as some of the state parks along the river. Hope this helps.

You can also drive accross into St. Croix Falls and head north through town a couple miles to Lyons Park. There is a boat landing and parking there.

Another option is to buy one of those map books from the Sportsmans. The one for the "EAST METRO AREA: has the St. Croix in it and it lists all the boat landings from Taylors Falls on down. You might contact the various counties along the St. Croix north of Taylors Falls/St. Croix Falls and ask for a map showing the county parks and boat landings. Talk to the Parks deparatmens in whatever and whatever counties they would be. Good Luck! Tight Lines!

Wooduck,

As my FM tag-name implies I am from Oakdale too. I launched out of Beanies Sunday, which is just south of the Interstate 94 river bridge. It is only $5.00 to launch this time of year. You just put a five dollar bill in the envelope and put it through the door slot. Very nice launch, and even better yet good people.

I think most of the typically pay launches give a break to the fall holdouts. The Windmill in Afton has allowed me to launch without charge the past two weeks.

The two most used launches are the Boomsite north of Stillwater and the Bluffs regional park north of Hastings (requires county pass or fee.)

      There's still driveable ice in the Ely area.

        We were fishing tip-ups for pike and jigging spoons for perch over by Terry's the last few weeks. There were quite a few perch in the 3-10" range. Sometimes we had ten marks on our screens at once. They were in shallow, 6-8', and the big pike were chasing them.   Also, Rocky Reef had some pockets where the perch were thick this winter. Those tended to be in 11-16'.    I still think the perch are in there, but they're difficult to find under the ice.   Get the boat out there and idle around side-scanning for baitfish pods, kand you'll see a lot of what look like perch schools.

      White Sand had 12 inches last Monday when I fished it.  ice cracked and began shifting a few days ago.  Interesting year as ice is still tight to shoreline, but some of those cracks that developed a few days ago are up anywhere from a foot to 5 feet wide now.      I'm done. was hoping to hit N.Long one last time but not worth the risk anymore.

      46 inch pike in MN sort of a stretch as well, although I was "only" about 5 inches short on one last summer. (on vermilion)
