ramps

4 posts in this topic

Hi everyone,

I plan on fishing the north metro sections of the river for the first time this year and am wondering if there are any resources with a list of ramps and their locations and descriptions. I'm a little intimidated by this section of the river (17 foot alumacraft) and am having a hard time putting all the information in this forum together. Is there a book or something I should have?

One good suggestion is to talk to Jack at Actions Fishing in anoka... He has maps and cen tell you a lot about the river up here...You can pretty much fish anywhere south of the 169 bridge in champlin down to the dam. Going up river from there is a little changeling..( just look at river dogs prop...lol )

Thanks. Looks to me like Mississippi point park is the right access for that stretch. Is that ramp OK on the weekends or is it tough to get a parking spot? Thanks again.

There are 2 ramps in the area one is on the Champlin side not sure on the name of the park. The one on the Anoka side which is up the Rum River, to get there you need to go to Main st in Anoka and turn S on 2nd Ave and it is about 4 blocks down on the right. Not much parking and it fills up fast on the weekend pretty good during the week though.

      Only 39 degrees in the Pike River mouth yesterday! That is usually warmer then the main lake. Cliff

      Del, We only got about 1/2 inch of snow but more snow and rain is predicted for Sunday and maybe Monday. Only 22 degrees for a high here yesterday! 39 degrees now and supposed to get to 50 degrees today. Crazy spring! Probably still frost in the ground in most areas. Cliff

      Hello Everyone, May is just a few days away and I'd love to see how the water is warming this Spring through Summer... Can we start a thread with daily water temps? Date: East side or West side: Location: Temp:   I'll be there June 10th! Thanks, ~Tripp in ATL

      Not a fishing report, but a question....   Is the frost out of the ground yet?   Bringing some stuff up to the cabin and wondering about water lines and stuff freezing and all that.   I see the forecast is for the 50's next week..     How much snow did you all get?

        I keep and eat fish also.  I was just reacting with a snide remark to a tone of "I want some fish to eat, got any spots" that perhaps was unintended .   If so, I apologize.    Many of the streams in SE Minnesota are populated primarily with native brown trout, and the DNR information is reasonably reliable.  There was a major kill in summer 2015 on the very popular south branch Whitewater river and I don't know how the recovery is coming along.    Cause still unknown.      Some recent info....(not about kill)   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/giving-nature-and-anglers-a-hand/article_dfe73b76-5cd9-520c-834f-7d4101a40b2e.html   http://www.postbulletin.com/sports/outdoors/john-weiss-trout-cooperate-for-a-fantastic-opener/article_2b106b9b-595f-5bee-8c3b-ceb761179da1.html   The DNR stocking activity is accessible from Lakefinder.   Here is the info for rainbow trout for 2016, the latest year available.  It will give you an idea of the activities.     http://www.dnr.state.mn.us/lakefind/showstocking.html?year=2016&county=&species=RBT
