7 posts in this topic

I am coming to Apple valley Sept 7-10 for some business training. I will be pretty busy until late in the afternoon on the 9th I would love to get some fishing in a new state. I have a spinning rod and real that I could fit in my suite case and I would love to target some pike but i don't really care that much. I am staying at the crowne plaza in eagan I will not have a car so if there is anywhere that I could walk to. any info would be greatly appreciated. thank You

MH is that the hotel on Pilot Knob? If so there is a pond about a mile down the road from where you'll be at. It's in between Unisys and Lockheed Martin back by the rec center. Let me know if thats the right hotel or not and I'll figure something out.

I am sure it has a name but I have no idea what it is. I just remembered there is another pond on the other side of Pilot knob as well. Both of them are about 1/2 a block south of Lone Oak road on Pilot Knob. The East side one is behind some apartments with a park right there as well. This one might be called Hilltop Pond, not exactly sure though.

The west side one is a 1/2 block down the road on the north side of Lockheed Martin. It's right next to the rec center back there with walking paths around the whole thing I think.

Also there is Lemay Lake which is on Lone Oak rd right behind Lemay Lake Apartments. That one is very shallow however but the DNR says they stock it so there should be fish in there.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
