Stony Point Access

6 posts in this topic

I thought I saw that the stoney point campground was closed for the year but can you still use the access all year? I was thinking of trying to get out there this weekend and possibly accessing there for ice fishing.

Thanks,

Joe

Should be able to access it. If not, you can try Whipolt.

It shouldn't be closed. THe campground yes, but not stony point. Don't snowmobilers drive out of there in the winter?

Whipholt is a good alternative if there isn't a north wind.

I think that stoney point access is still open, I will check tommorrow. The water is to shallow for whipolt, you'll get stuck. Trappers Landing or Horseshoe bay will be your best bet if you don't mind a fee, this time of year I wouldn't worry about it though. Sand Point is a good option.

I launched out of Stony Point last weekend. The launch is always open, as well as the parking lot next to the launch. There is a big baracade on both the entrance and exit to the campground area.

       I hope it warms up this week so I can get the boat out again.  Mice or squirrels or chipmunks chewed a beautiful hole into my live well hoses so I had a good leak going on but it's fixed now.    Now I'm just waiting for some warmer weather

      Cliff - why do they quit taking spawn when they haven't filled up to capacity, and the spawn is still active?  Years ago my dad was convinced that the DNR took adult walleyes out of Vermilion and transferred them to other lakes; do you think that ever occurred?  The hatchery is beneficial to Vermilion and other lakes, but why do they plant fry in lakes where they have no chance of reproducing?  Aren't there enough lakes where they can reproduce to some extent to plant them in?

        Well it didn't take long for "that guy" to show up.    It shouldn't be too difficult to understand why I'd rather fish for trout than buy them at the store...   Do they holdover though? I thought that was a lake stocked right before freeze up and then all but completely fished out after the Winter opener.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff
