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.

      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.
