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.

To avoid all confusion, just stop by and talk with the owner.

      Got more picks? Not sure with just this one. First glance, looks like an emerald shiner. Welcome to FM!

      I have an Eskimo and love it. I fish a lot and punch a lot of holes most outtings. I had to rebuild the carb this year, but I've had the auger for 4 years or so... Always starts no matter how cold...I've drilled with jiffy and can't stand them... The blades on the Eskimos last a long time and are cheap when you have to replace them... I drilled with a SM last year and really liked it, but they are so pricey. I got my z51 shark dirt cheap ($220 shipped to my door) from Glens Army Navy in Rapids. I'd go Eskimo or Strikemaster if I was you.
