Washington Clean up cancelled

11 posts in this topic

Due to all the snow we have received and the new snow coming I have decided to cancel this clean up. All the trash will be under the snow.

We will wait until a later date and re schedule again. Thanks to all those that had planned on helping.

Please let me know as soon as you reschedule so I can try to pull together a dive team to do the area "ajoining" the landing.

Either Otter or myself will get another one going. With the snow depth it looks like having one this spring and fishing slab crappies might be the time.

We will get this planned as soon as Otter and I can talk.

Thanks for the interest.

It's great to hear of others doing clean-up on area lakes. smile.gif Every spring I like to carry some trash bags along with me in my tackle box. If everyone did this, we can all make a difference in keeping our lakes and rivers clean for everybody. smile.gif And if it is you making the mess, shame on you. frown.gif

I didn't see any trash today but then again, if there is any, I think most of it is buried. smirk.gif

I believe that every landing will be snow packed. Iam sure wasington has PLENTY of garbage at the Westwood landing. Last year ity was either 11 or 13 bags picked up.

      Much appreciated JBMasterAngler! I saw a couple of your comments on another DevilsTrack lake post, but that was from 2007 so this updated information is AWESOME !! LOL! Thank you! I am looking forward to giving it a go.    I have a bunch of chartreuse  and fire tiger rapalas too. Got a couple that dive to 16 feet, and couple to around 7. Hopefully i can locate a couple eater walleye. thanks again man.

      Beanies is a privately held beach and company. There is no way they would become a free public launch site--unless they sold to the DNR. I know nothing of that happening. However, if you're patient, the DNR is building one under the new HWY 36 bridge with 35 trailer parking spots to be completed in late fall 2019/early spring 2020. Here's the article: http://stillwatergazette.com/2017/03/20/dnr-plans-boat-launch-next-to-st-croix-bridge/. As for fishing, right now with the hot weather and the recent mayfly hatch, it's been a tough bite. Fish drop-offs or channels and try everything.

      Those islands are a good starting point. The mouth of the junco creek  (which is right at the campground) is a popular spot also. Gold is the go to color. Lake is full of cigars, but you should be able to find a few big enough to eat. Shorefishing at the access at night can be productive with leeches, but it's always those pesky cigars again. You might want to take a day and go over to nearby Two Island Lake. Has a much better population of eaters in my opinion.

      Wondering if there are any free campsites in the Ely area, preferably off of fernberg trail or hwy 1 within reasonable distance of town. I know there are a thousand sites on islands or lake shores that are "boat to", but I'm looking for drive to sites. Being on or near a lake would be nice, but I'm not too picky. Just looking to make a trip a little more affordable, as well as getting a chance to explore the area a little better

      City launch in Hudson.

      Somebody needs to find out where it happened and start throwing some big baits in that area.

      No problems today with Chrome, so it must be fixed.

      Without seeing the bottom of the foot, I have the same thoughts.   Sure could be a propeller hit though.

      Was up for the weekend with the family and got out a little bit. Fished for about 2 hours in the morning and evening each day started out great on Friday nailing a 24" first fish but but over all fishing was slow for me. Saturday I zeroed but switched to spinner rigs w crawlers  Sunday and got into some nicer walleyes all 16 to 22" fish 1 mph perch colored spinners with the hammered looked to them with orange and green beads on a sand to rock transition. Sure was marking a ton of bait fish on the screen it looks like the lake is loaded right now.  How did everyone else do?

      We usually go with 3/8 or 1/2 ounce jigs on the US side due to depth and current.  I do not know if these sizes help avoid snags.
