overnight parking on the river?

6 posts in this topic

Is it allowed to camp on the st croix? I see a lot of people with bigger boats beached by the kinni narrows in the summer Just wondering if a guy could pop up a tent there for the opener?

Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Yes you can. I have done the camping opener in a tent out there more than once. There are lots of nice islands north of Stillwater too, but the high water may not leave much extra room for a tent. You should definitely try it though. It's a lot of fun. Always seems to rain though. Bring plenty of dry firewood!

Which launches if any could I leave my truck and trailer parked at overnight? I dont mind if it costs a couple bucks but I would hate to get my rig towed.

I don't think that I have ever seen a no overnight parking sign at the launch in prescott of course I have never looked either. I don't remember ever seeing a vehicle parked down there all night long but if it is legal that would be a worth while place to park. Don't take my word for it that launch being ok for overnight but maybe someone will prove it or disprove it whichever the case may be.

keep fishin'

At St Croix Bluffs you can't park in the parking lot overnight, but you can rent a campsite there and keep your rig at the site overnight while you camp out on an island.

      Day two was a bit different than day one for us.  Much slower mid day resulting 50 fish for the day.  A couple of 23" being the biggest.    ESE wind caused a different approach Today that challenged me a bit.  As well as the river was VERY BUSY today!   Water conditions appeared to stay fantastic as far as current and clarity,  should be a nice week ahead for those coming up.

        We have fished both days out of Vidas.

      Buddy of mine just drove past the Big and Littlefork rivers on hwy11, said ice bank to bank on both. Even saw fresh tracks from snowmobiles on them. So for whatever that's worth guys and gals.

      Took the boat out on Cedar Island today.  Water was 39 and crappie were deep.  Large bay at access was iced over but could hug the shore and make it around.  Otherwise it was mostly open.

      Tipups we are between Springsteel and Warroad right now. Still driving trucks and wheelhouses out about 24" of ice.
