494 ramp

8 posts in this topic

Does this ramp get plowed out? I can't remember from years past if it is plowed as a public service or not. I'm really considering going out tommorrow if it is plowed out. Hopefully one of you can enlighten me on this.

I checked the lilydale ramp 2 days ago, and it was not plowed. Their was also ice on the river. I think that the ice comes and goes though, because 3 days ago i drove over the river and could have swore it was open.

The 494 ramp is further north then the lilydale ramp right?

I saw a boat fishing south of the bridge yesterday afternoon was that you versus? If so did you have any luck?

The 494 ramp is south of lillydale in south st paul.

Nope that wasn't me. I wish it would have been though. I think I might give it a go this coming weekend. Even if it's only for a couple of hours.

I know someone drives over the the ramp that reads this forum. Could one of you please just look to the south as you are going east bound. I would greatly appreciate it. I just don't want to drive down there this weekend to have to turn around because I can't get my boat launched. Thanks guys

I drove over the bridge today and a pick-up with a boat trailer was in the parking lot.

I fished down there a few times late march early april, only got a few eyes. We got them jigging. Whats the most productive way to get them and where abouts. Don't fish that far north on the river except at the Ford dam.

      Noon hour today a skid steer on tracks was down clearing the bottom of the awesome boat ramp at Wheelers Point.  This NCOR Update features Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts....It is "game on" all the way along the river now.

      I've wondered why there are no saugers on Vermilion.  Lots of them up at lake of the woods and fun "bonus" fish to catch.  Probably an easy answer but wondering thoughts.

      River is open to the Wheelers Point Boat Landing today (backhoe was working on it at noon so it is only a few minutes away).  Paul Johnson from River Bends Resorts joins me on this update.  Lots of good info here.

      Good luck!  Always a fun time of year!   I just finished my last day of ice fishing this season on 19 inches of ice yesterday in Ely.  Today I drove to Maple Grove and saw three boats on the lakes on the way down.   I used to be one of those guys.
