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.

      Thanks for all the replies, we just ended up driving home (Duluth). Sorry I wasn't very specific on dates - we went up yesterday. Tried calling Pike Bay to no avail.    Hit the edge of a small reef and fished the rocks, transition, and sand. Two very small walleye were all we connected with.   Would have been nice to stay for the night bite, but got up early and did some trout fishing in the Duluth area this morning.   Tight lines.

      Smoked 8  up this weekend and really better than I thought they would be.  fillet fish leave skin on for brine 1/2 cup noniodine salt 1 cup sugar 1 qt water brine overnight rinse, pat dry and let sit out for an hour or so.  sprinkle with a seasoning if you like. I did lemon pepper on a couple and seafood magic on a couple.  have smoker heated to 200 put in smoked with a little cherry wood smoke 1 hour and done.  should be about 155 degrees internal.  nom nom nom ! ! !

      I have a BIL that lives south of there a bit. He says carnelian has lots of springs in it and wouldn't drive out there for no amount of money.

      Out on the north end. 8", 15" and a 24" over night. I've lost about 8 so far off rattles. Not sure if I'm not getting a good hookset or what. I've tried horsing them in and babying... headshakes are dislodging the hooks.   any advise? I'd have 12 on the board had I not missed any!
