Montissippi Park-What, Where, When, How?

5 posts in this topic

Anyone been by there lately?
Ran into a guy at the Orono Spillway who said he's nailed lots of smallies and walleye from shore - I'm lookin for confirmation and pointers. Last time I was there was spring, and the current was too vicious to fish effectively. Wanna get my son (4) out for one last open water day-trip from shore during this coming Saturday's Indian Summer before we pack up the gear.

West on 25 out of Monticello - past the convenience stores, and look for signs on the right hand side. I've never put in there, but there's a ramp, but I don't know it's conditions. The guy I saw launch in April seemed to have a little trouble, though.

actually it's highway 75. go to the second Monticello exit hwy 25 go north to 75 , go west about two miles you will see the gun club on the right and the next right is the park entrance . go all the way to the river and you have it. you can also take the first Monticello exit which is hwy 75 go west past hwy 25 and stay on 75. to the park. metro

I have said something that the administration did not like and have been banned from the board.F.M has pretty thin skin if that's all it takes.Metro

Oh yeah - thanx Metro - I keep getting 25 & 75 confused. Wonder whatever happened to that old national system of east-west roads being even #s? Probably only interstates. Thanx for the clarification.

      Finally making it up for our first trip of the year. Strictly walleye fishing in Frazer Bay with slip bobbers around the reefs. Appreciate any fishing reports. Thanks!

      I believe they take vets living in veteran homes around the area like Silver Bay veteran home ect

      tango loves going to Crooked lake!   Sand pines really works with you well for starting off. I don't know just because they were not busy but the kid stayed out with me and planted one by one until I told him to release them all. Golden meadows is nice as well. Do the pre buy program (I think if you buy before mid Aug) and the birds are a good price. They will flag all the birds if you want.   He still only weighs under 60lbs but I like it that way he is deadly fast and never gets tired   Cant wait to see how he does this season want to make a trip to the Dakotas at least once

      Does anybody know of a local Alexandria shop that would install a Humminbird Helix for me?

      Like Mlaker3 said... go as light as you can. The key is to try and stay vertical. It's the nature of the beast when jigging in rocks that your going to get some snags and loose some jigs.

      Thanks for all info. Even if I end up staying at the kawashiwi river campground (which I've done the past 2 years), now I at least know where to drive around and scout out some spots for next trip.

      Good advice! I appreciate it. And good to hear from you. I found fish over the weekend on reef tops with few if any bites. I should've moved on but 11-12" fish made me think better ones might come. The good fish I did find were on the sides of reefs.  I'm off the water for family business, but hoping for a good August!
