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.

      Send me a pm for some ideas in the area. I plan on hunting Dayton and Monticello mainly but if those don't work out I need some backup plans.

      I am with you, net_man.  I *hate* that I can't C&R walleyes in the fall.  I mean, what's hooking mortality at 6-12 ft deep with artificial lures in October and November?  I've never had a fish not swim away, and I can't remember one that didn't do it in a hurry.  Drives me crazy, as fall trolling on Mille Lacs is one of my favorite ways to catch fish.  This year, thanks to the weather, we did get out in December...and the fishing was nuts.  If only we had been able to be out all fall...   I wonder if the night ban in the fall (even if we haven't hit our quote) has more to do with enforcement than anything else.  I have no idea what's said at meeting I ain't invited to.

      The big one in Sherburne I hunt a lot and even during firearm season I never see anyone close to me as I like to get back as well. During archery it is even easier usually I only see a truck here and there but the place is huge so you never see them.   You living in Andover there is a 200 acre public place like 10 mins away from you that doesn't get hardly any archery pressure I sometimes go there after work for a quick hunt and there is only a couple trucks there usually.   There is also a very small one on the way up to the big one in Sherburne that on spur of the moment I went to on gun opener and I was the absolutely only person there.   But really most every one for archery is going to have minimal pressure.
