Public Access from Woodbury

8 posts in this topic

I am looking for the closest public access from Woodbury. We have launched at Beanie's before right by the bridge on 94 but is expensive. Am looking for a different way. Can anyone help me?

try the Bluffs Regional park a few miles south of Afton state park on St Croix Trail. Its $5.00 a day or $20.00 for a yearly pass and then you can use the boat ramp as many times as you want. The ramp is three boats can launch at the same time and they have over 50 parking spaces. Good luck Mark

I second the bluffs! I beleive the first tuesday of the month is free also so check it out. The only bad things about it is the hours 6am-11pm (which to most is fine but sometimes I get out during the night). Watch out for the drop on the boat ramp too, SLOW backing the trailer in and get use to a little trailer scraping.(when the water is low).

crappie getter,

If I'm not mistaken I though someone stated the bluffs landing was tough to get in and out of. Can someone let me know what the conditions are like please. I too would like to use it instead of coming from Hastings.

Thanks

Just don't back your trailer too far in. With the low water you are getting pretty near the end of the concrete ramp. It's deep right off the concrete so if the wheels go off it's an adventure! Great access though.

Thank you very much! I didn't think I had a dumb question. I will be giving it a try.
Again thanks!

Yup it's quite shallow at the launch right now, Loading my boat by myself yesterday was quite the adventure, you pretty much have to drop you trailer off the concrete to put in, but it's do-able, and has to be the nicest launch I've ever used.

With the low water the channel going into the river should be negotiated carefully.

      The Rum has been dropping in flow and water level since the 20th from St Francis down if that helps

      Fishing awful this morning. Launched at 8:30. By 12:30 had exactly two small pike. Finally found some walleyes and ended up with 22 fish - NO BASS! bummer. Water cold - only 61-64 degrees. Weather man blew it again. Walleyes in about 20 FOW, best lure Lunker City Fin-S-Fish.   New camera worked well but had troubles with new sonar/GPS. Think I got it fixed once home.   Here is today's video: June 26 video

      We took our annual trip to Rainy Lake in mid-June staying at Taylor's Cove along Bear's Pass.  My dad started going there back in the late 70's and now brings me and my son.  Every year provides great memories, new and old.  Anyhow, fishing was very good, particularly for bass and walleye. Water temps ranged from 62-72 degrees.  Most days were about 75 degrees, overcast and breezy.  Our biggest smallmouth was 22" and biggest walleye was 30".  In fact we boated ten walleye 25" or larger.  We caught pike up to 37".  We found walleyes in weedy bays around 6-10' deep.  Bass were in 5-8'.  Most of the fish were spitting up perch so I imagine that's what kept them shallow.  A few pics to share.  Wish I could be there more often...

      I live 10 min from cabelas and they have like 4 trolling motors on the floor.... dont like buying something i cant look at.

      You can't find one? How much do they cost? Try Cabela's for starters.All the I-Pilot and I-Pilot Link models have Spot-lock.   http://www.cabelas.com/browse.cmd?categoryId=734095080&CQ_search=terrova   https://www.minnkotamotors.com/Trolling-Motors/Freshwater-Bow-Mount/New-Terrova/

      Nice, I'll have to start fishing it more and learn it.

      You can find crappies and sunfish anywhere on the like around the pencil reeds and/or cabbage.  One of the best spots is right in front of the resort, but don't limit yourself there as there are plenty of spots all over the lake for pan fish.  The nice part is that you will probably also catch bass while going for pan fish.  Good luck and remember to give other fisherman plenty of room.  No reason to fish close to others.
