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

8 posts in this topic

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.

      6/24/17     Got out on Washington this morning to target walleyes. Cold and windy! Busy today--a bass tournament going on. We fished several spots with leeches under a slip float for eyes. Only caught one small one, and missed a couple bites that might have been walleyes. Did catch several medium to large smallies and one largemouth. Got off the lake about 10:00 as we saw the first wave of rain approaching. Not interested in fishing cold, wind-driven rain. Guess mother nature doesn't always look at the calendar, which said summer started this week. Good luck, and I will see you out there somewhere.

      Just back from Big Sandy, fished the main basin and concentrated on two humps. Caught five walleye and kept three that were in the slot, all about 15 inchers. Quit sooner than planned as the wind really started kicking up. Leeches, lindy rigs, red hooks and a green bead did the trick. Tried spinners and crawlers with no luck. All were caught in 9 - 12 FOW.   BIG fire in McGregor this morning, a trucking business on the east end of town burnt down.

      Alright, so I got out yesterday in the early afternoon I decided to go try the Mississippi there is this little public boat dock, so I dropped a line there and within the hour I got a Northern Pike it was about 24 inches long and then about a half hour I pulled in a blacktail redhorse an it was about 12 or 13 inches long. So not a bad day out there on the river for dock fishing! I caught both the fish on them green night crawlers, I also tried throwing out a crank, a jig, and a watermelon Senko. All they wanted was them green worms! Thanks for the tips I finally caught a couple fish (hopefully there is more to come)

      Well if you are looking in the Minneapolis lake nokomis has a fishing pier   North metro Crooked lake in Andover has a pier. There is a nice park as well and all the sunfish you want to catch no big ones though.
