When did Auburn (Victoria) become part of Three Rivers Park District?

Also, where can I get my parking pass?

Most of it is in Carver Park and has been for years. An order form can be obtained online at the Three Rivers parks website for the boat trailer pass which is also good for Independence, Minnewashta, Steiger and any other lakes in the district. The launches also have a paybox.

That's what I noticed different a couple of weeks ago.

I have been fishing Auburn for 10 years, but I do not recall a paybox ever being there.

I think 3-Rivers changed their fee system. In the past you could buy a park permit and access the trails, boat launch, horse trails...basically anything in the park system.

Now, you have to pay for each facility you use in the park system. So if you use the boat launches, you'll need a pass for that. If you use the horse trails, you will need a specific permit for that too. ETC, ETC... Pay as you Play, I think it is called.

You might check their web site to confirm this info.

I guess.

Oh well, I just bought my pass online a few minutes ago. It was pretty slick. I acn start utilizing my pass immediatly because I got an online recipt that I can use until the pass comes in the mail.

You used to need a pass to use the parks for anything, picnicing, camping, playing on the kids areas, now they charge for the specific services that demand maintenance like the trails and the boat launches.

      1-18-17 Fishing Report. The fishing on LOTW remains fairly consistent in the last week with several Walleyes and Saugers in the 12.5-16 inch range being brought up the holes mixed in with a few larger sized perch,pout and tullibees in the 30-33 feet of water range. Meanwhile,in the 16-20 feet of water range the bite remains fairly steady with both smaller and keeper sized walleye and saugers being caught. The bite in both depths seems to not really pick up until around 10 am most days and seems to almost slow down around 4 pm. Live fat heads have been the bait of choice using a plain red hook or a glow in the dark pink or gold gem-n-eye on a dead stick,jigging a minnow has been effective as well using clam jigs or a demon jigging spoon or charmer with glow in the dark pink,green or hammer gold being the colors of choice. Heading into the weekend with the warmer weather continuing to move in we remind you to please,check with a resort,outfitter or bait shop before venturing out on the big lake as the ice conditions may change daily. We hope to see everyone on beautiful Lake of the Woods very soon!

      Wondering if anyone has been out on Christmas yet this year. Thinking about going this weekend and live a ways away. I know it is one of the later lakes to freeze up. Thanks in advance.

      It sounds like there definitely can be a worthwhile night bite.  The type of structure seems to dictate how good it can be. "Smaller" humps, or structure by itself seems to produce better then the breaklines along the numerous flats.  It seems "smaller" structure topping out 10 to 15 feet surrounded be deeper water is best.   Good luck, and report back.

      nephew was fishing a bobber and had another hole about 4 feet away. dropped the vex in and saw a mark and said, I'll get that crappie. Wham!  thought it was a northern. wrapped into his bobber line and had a great fight.  totally surprised when the perch popped up the hole. lol

      Hey, I expressed what I have heard from the locals.   We have been summer folks for quite a while so get some access to the feelings of the locals, like our next door neighbors.      The Landing seems to have made a deliberate business decision to not target local folks but rather upscale tourists.   That is their privilege.    I choose not to patronize them.     As a guy I used to know at IBM said  "that's not the target market".  I am not the Landing's target market.      See you at the Crescent.   (or South Switch.)   (or the VFW in cook for burger night)    Lots of places to go if I want upscale.  Whistling Bird in Gilbert, several places in Ely, etc.
