Just to let everyone know, Coville boat landing is still closed. They are going to fix it up this spring.

What about the first landing on the left as you come into the park? I believe they are fixing the 1 by the marina. How does baypoint look?

I would like to know too. I would like to drive down this weekend to get the boat wet. smile.gif If the little access is closed, what would be a good alternative?

Baypoint might be open otherwise Wisconsin access (free) over the bridge just watch out out for the wing dam crossing the river just north of the access. Everts is a great place to launch but it does have a $7 fee. Positive side to that is you can get update to the date info on the bite from Dean that can really make a difference.

Tuesday March 20 access report. Colville is under construction, doesn't matter as it is iced in anyways. The small upper ramp has been open for several weeks. Baypoint is still iced in. Everetts is your best option if you want to fish the dam. Nice ramps and docks unlike the government landing which doesn't have docks. Also provides up to date reports.

      CigarGuy, We did not venture out very far from the Landing, walking distance only! The ice had about 3" or 4" of soup on top everywhere. We fished in 12' to 14' depth on the first drop off. The kids iced a bunch of small perch jigging with small jigs and wax worms and missed a couple of pike on tip-ups. Fun day for all of us! Cliff

      Ice is very black and honeycombed.   I would say its only safe for walking but if we get a lot of snow it may not be safe period.   I have open water pockets in the ice by my shore.   Open water is not far from becker and the river is opening up north of the access.   Don

      Were you renting from the road operator or a guide using someone else's road? I have heard of having to pay the road pass if the outfitter you work with doesn't have their own road. Cookie mentions it in his updates quite often, since he uses/helps with Hillman's road.

      Thanks.  We sadly have caught bigger but didn't get them on video.  Average size this trip was around that 18.5-19" mark.  We got really excited because a few of them were 21" and the state record is only 20.5 or 20.75" but the state record had a girth of 6+ inches!  that fish had to be THICK!  Was a ton of fun and I can't wait to get them from the smoker on Friday!
