Root River Access

4 posts in this topic

I am interested in floating the Root from Rushford to Houston in a small boat? I am unable to find a launch site. Where can I put in? The boat is a homebuilt duckboat with a 9.8 outboard. Thanks.

It's kind of rough going, but there is a canoe access just below the spillway near Rushford. If you head out of town like you're going to Lanesboro it'll be on your lefthand side. Don't forget to fish a bit right below the spillway. Good Luck!!!

its so hard to say about that boat because the river is down in most areas. i dont know how the boat would take it. but the area of what hes talking about is almost just accross the leigon in rushford. again i honestly dont think that you could use the outboard, i try to use the trolling down all the way. email me if ya have any questions of where to fish i have some good holes going down that way, bensonj@rescueteam.com

I was afraid of that. I looked at that site a couple of days ago and wasn't sure if I could put in there or not. Have to decide how badly i want to make this trip. Thanks for your help.

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.

      What kind of hand auger and shape is it in

      Heard island lake was a hot spot. Any lure that resembles a small foot should work well.

      I'd go with 112 if you have the room more power and I believe last longer on the water. I pilot is worth it. Spot lock to fan cast an area or to stay outside the dock that you just got broke off of are two benifits. I pilot link links up with your hummingbird unit if that's what you have for a depth finder. Let's you follow depth contours. Good luck with the purchases

      sure odd to see the timberwolves mentioned in trade possibilities with the likes of a Kyrie Irving.

      I just dont believe that to be a Esox bite at all. Too much space between the Major wounds, IMHO!
    • delcecchi
      That is a strong possibility...

      Here is a photo of the foot.  Looks like a toothy gator.

      http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/07/21/fish-injury-island-lake/   DULUTH, Minn. (AP) — An 11-year-old girl has undergone surgery to repair damage to her foot which might have been caused by a fish in a northeastern Minnesota lake. Maren Kesselhon suffered nine deep lacerations and tendon damage when she was injured while sitting on a paddleboard on Island Lake north of Duluth Wednesday. Maren’s dad, Ryan Kesselhorn, says his daughter told him she could feel her foot in the mouth of a fish and kicked at it with her other foot to free herself. The Dickinson Press reports doctors at Essentia Health, where Maren had surgery, say the razor-sharp cuts, some down to the bone, probably were caused by a fish. Island Lake is home to large muskies and northern pike. A Duluth fisherman caught and released a 47-inch long muskie Wednesday.
