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.

      Most of our fish came on minnows under bobbers. I spooked countless fish with even subtle jigging.

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents
