Babblers Road - Status?

13 posts in this topic

What's the status of his road?

Last I heard the breaker was giving him trouble and he closed the road.

Thanks,

Sunday he had a one lane road from gull rock to 16 mile. Pretty tough going. It was being snoed in by the time we left at one oclock. boar

Babblers road runs out of Rocky Point, 6-8 mile drive to the west.

It's right off the highway, just before you get to Arneson's. It will be on the Right hand side. There is a sign, you can't miss it.

King Fisher, Welcome to the LOW forum.

Would you mind changing your handle? This could become confusing. Thanks, Kingfisher

As of 7:15 p.m. Wednesday - Babbler's message stated the road was plowed to 16 mile. We're wondering if we can make it off the road and set up or is the snow too deep to go off trail. Otherwise we'll maybe check out L.P. or Zipple.

When I was up on Sun. his road jus t ended, getting around was really tough. We tried but got stuck and ended up fishing where we dug out an caught alot of fish, I whish he would plow some off shoots or something I'd gladly pay an extre buck or two for that convienence. Boar

I was out there Saturday when he was plowing, he just ended it and turned around to head back.

The snow is deep out there with lots of drifting, don't think that travel will be very easy off the road.

Good luck

      Anyfish2 - thanks for the reports. I believe it was you who had written a little summary that included a rough estimation of when the LF river busts open and muddies the Rainy.    Can you (or anyone) comment on when that's looking likely to happen? anyone know when the river cleared the Frontier landing? I think you said that happening gives a 1-to-2 week notice on the LF breakup.

      recommendation for first timers to northern Minnesota?  we need decent lodging, boat or sitontop kayak, smallmouth is our favorite but we will fish for anything that will bite artificial.  thanks in advance for any help.

      My Alaska trip fell through, so I'm thinking having never been to Minnesota that should be my destination. thinking a week in august. Probably start International Falls or Duluth. We need a resort with sit on top kayaks or aluminum boats, comfortable lodging without being plush and not ripping our heads off pricewise.  We will target Smallmouth, but if it will hit a lure I will fish for it. any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.

      Went out of Stoney Point sunday morning.  FYI Watch for deer almost smoked a few on the 20 mph section coming back into the access!  There is an ice heave forming off of the rocks going straight north.  If you want to fish Paris Trench people were crossing instantly using boards.  We weren't gutsy/brave/stupid enough to cross there since we were pulling a trailer behind a four wheeler and had 3 of us with all our gear.  The ice was sketchy from access to point at the point the ice heave goes a little further away from shore and it allows you some room to avoid the point's tip.  There is open water immediately around the point tip but ice looks great if you follow the tracks and avoid huging the tip.  We couldn't find a place to cross the ice heave to get to Paris Trench so we were going to try a few spots further north since we could see a few groups set up north a ways.  About 5.5 miles north of the access the ice heave quits and you can cross it without any worries.  Since we could cross the GPS spot we wanted to fish was only 2.5 miles away and we fished there.  Out in the middle we had 26-28" of ice and barely made it through.  While fishing a plane landed on the lake and a 1/2 ton extended cab pickup came from the NE some where, it was too foggy misty to see where and we didn't see him leave.  Coming back from Stoney Point's Tip to the access was very sketchy.  Made me nervous since there was a lot of slush and water but ice held us up.  If you plan on going out next weekend you may need to find a different access, or atleast I would!  Talked to a guy who came in behind us, they crossed the ice heave at the access using boards how they did and they said it was very slow and only got two.
