Lake Access Points

3 posts in this topic

How many access points are there to drive out onto URL? Does anyone know of a map online that I could see that shows them???

I'm just wondering about being able to go mobile if the fish are not under the sleeper I am renting. Once I get out on the lake, is it fairly easy to get around form one area to another? Is there usually a good plowed road network to move around? For example, say I am in a sleeper on the north section of fishable waters. I find out that the bite is hot in the southern areas. Will I be able to drive from north to south on the lake, or will I need to return to my access point, drive south, and pay again to get on the lake??

I know that pressure cracks can be a real pain in the neck, and if there is enough snow, where unplowed, the drifts will make vehicle travel impossible. What is the norm when going mobile on URL to find fish?

There must be at least 8 access points, but now there is 8-10 inches of snow on the lake making it tough to be very mobile. There should be good roads plowed, but I don't know that I would go to far off them. Bring a tow strap and a shovel!!

Cross country travel will be almost impossible for a while. To go from North to South side you'd definitely want to use the blacktop for safety reasons. Kelly gave some good advice a few years ago. Have a shovel for each person in the vehicle plus a pointed dirt shovel for when the drifts are frozen and packed underneath. tongue.gif Stan C.

      The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will collect and analyze water samples from about 90 wells in Washington County this spring. The data are being collected for the Washington County Geologic Atlas, an effort involving the Minnesota Geological Survey and the DNR’s Ecological and Water Resources Division.  DNR staff will contact county residents to request permission for well sampling, which involves collecting a water sample and measuring the depth to water in each well. Tests will profile the general chemical characteristics of area groundwater and will also show approximately how long the water has been underground. Geology, location, well depth and well construction will determine the selection of wells for sampling. Owners of sampled wells will receive a report of the laboratory results for the water sample collected from their well. Preserving the long-term quality of the region’s surface water and groundwater requires that policymakers have access to accurate information based on sound scientific principles. A county geologic atlas is a valuable tool for county planners, resource managers and other local government staff when making general planning, land use management and water resource protection decisions. The Minnesota Geological Survey has already published Part A of the atlas, which illustrates details of each county’s geology. In 2019, the DNR will publish the groundwater portion of the atlas (Part B). The Part B reports will include maps and descriptions of the distribution and movement of groundwater, cross sections illustrating groundwater conditions, and the pollution sensitivity of aquifers in the county. The DNR County Geologic Atlas program is funded in part by the Minnesota Environment and Natural Resources Trust Fund as recommended by the Legislative-Citizen Commission on Minnesota Resources. Funding also comes from the Clean Water Fund, which receives 33 percent of the sales tax revenue from the Clean Water, Land and Legacy Amendment approved by voters in November 2008. A full description of this DNR program and status reports for atlas products is available on the DNR website. For information, contact: Jim Berg, DNR hydrogeologist, 651-259-5680, jim.a.berg@state.mn.us; or Paul Putzier, DNR county geologic atlas program supervisor, 651-259-5692, paul.putzier@state.mn.us.

      I looked at cook, mn page didn't see the story.  both webpage   cookmn.com and the facebook page https://www.facebook.com/CookMn/ and the cook group   https://www.facebook.com/groups/396154887224760/ Not on Timberjay site either.     You can post a link by just copy/and paste the url from the bar in your browser into your post.
