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.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,

    • Wanderer
