Clearwater launches???

9 posts in this topic

I launched on the public launch across from McBrides bar and grill recently. But where is a good spot, public or private to launch as well (on a busy day).

There's another landing north of the access you used near McBride's. The other landing has a gravel road and is not nearly as nice as the one by McBride's. Head north from McBride's, go past BJ's Bait, and the access isn't too far down the road from there on your right hand side. I think it's marked with a Public Access sign.

The landing north of Mcbrides that Schloeride is referring to was upgraded last year and in my opinion is just as good as the access near Mcbrides. It has just as much parking, if not more, and 2 landings. We had no problems launching a 18 1/2 footer there with a bunk trailer. The lot was also paved. The road leading to it is still gravel.

I didn't realize it had been paved. The last time I used that landing was several years ago. There was no problem landing there, but the other one was better. Nice to know that it's been upgrade.

Does anyone know if the water level on Clearwater is lower than last year. If so, any problems getting through the channel from the black hole access to the main lake?

Bones is that the access inhte northwest bay? I have thought of launching from there. But worried about shallow water to the main lake.

You can easily get through the black pool channel to the main basin, also there is a pay on on the east basin off hwy 24, I think its 5 bucks?

The pay access off 24 is $5 and the owner is there to help everyone park and find a spot.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
