Root River Access Part Deux

3 posts in this topic

I've wade fished the North and Middle Branches of the Root several times in the past few years and have really enjoyed the experience. Now I'd like very much to drift from the Parsley bridge on U.S. 52 downstream. The next "official" takeout is a long way down for my purposes. I did some scouting and I see an "informal" takeout at the next bridge downstream, which I believe is the Allen Bridge. It looks like the path is within the road right of way, but it looks as if the adjacent landowner mows the ditch and keeps the place looking awfully tidy. I'd like to use that location, but I don't want to irritate anyone, either by trespassing or by simply being a rude nuisance. Does anyone have any information about this takeout? I can understand that you might not want to say anything in a public forum, but if you could P.M. me, I would appreciate it greatly.

      Making sure all equipment is in working order is one thing I always try to take care of before taking my first trip of the season. Nothing is quite as frustrating as a flasher with a dead battery or an auger that wont start.  I have always been a big believer having the proper equipment with to stay safe come first ice.... These items include a spud bar to check ice thickness, a section of rope,  a life jacket and a set of ice picks. Having a second person with is also a smart move when the ice is thin. Talking to those "in the know" about local bodies of water and current ice conditions is also a good thing to do.  Remember, first ice is usally not a consistant thickness, so use caution...and trust your gut...if something feels not right, it usally isn't. Good luck and stay safe, my friends :-)
