Ne w Landing in Works

2 posts in this topic

The DNR is in the process of purchasing a tract of land approxiamtely 10 miles northwest of Hallock to install a new boat landing facility. The landowner is willing to sell and in the process of finalizing the sale arrangements. The Kittson County Board of Commissinors must approve the land transfer. Hopefully, they will do so as a new landing is needed here in Kittson County. The current landing is at the Golden Grain Bridge straight west of Hallock on HYW 175. The DNR never got the ramp cleaned there last summer due to silt problems. The current landing is in a poor site as it is basically a dishbowl that is a magnet for heavy silt deposits when the river comes up. The maintence cost and constant challege to keep the old site free of silt so it could be opened has finally resulted in the DNR seekin a new boat access site. The old site would be maintained for shore fishing but the ramp will be closed if the new ramp deal goes through. The new site will have a parking lot at a higher elevation and there will be slope to back down which should be easier to mainatin. Should things go as planned the acess would be developed this summer for possble use as earlier as this fall. Will keep you posted.

More and improved landings are well overdue on the whole run of the Red and it's tribs. It has been a hard fight to get either ND or MN to cut funds to do them.

Sportsmans clubs and comunities have been the best bet to get new areas open and maintained, then the states at least look at matching funds.

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?

      Wow that ice went fast fished below the dam in Cold spring today. 3 feisty pike that was fun. Where the landing is there was about 20 feet of ice at the access. i was hoping to get the boat out but not yet. If anyone see's the ice go out by the landing let me know. Would like to get out however by Friday have heard any where from 1 inch to 20 so we will see.

        Do those 6" filet knifes work pretty good for pan fish?
