Public Access North of Garrison

Recommended Posts

A friend showed me a great spot to hit the lake from in the winter. It's before you get to Red Door. Is that a good place to launch from? Is that part of the lake a good place to fish? Being a novice boater I want to ease into this big lake. Or would you recommend on using one of the resorts? Last thing is I want to take my family to the lake for a weekend. Any personal recommendations? Appreciate any info you can share.

The Access you mention is the Wealthwood access. Right now with the water levels being so low, that access is not a good choice. I have even heard rumors that it may be shut down if the water does not go up before fall. If you want to fish the north end, you would be best off launching at the Red Door for 10 bucks. Then you know that your truck and stuff is safe as well. Red Door is a nice place to stay as well. I've stayed there on 2 occasions and found it to be clean and nice. Good boat harbor and slips with dockage.

Wealthwood access is completely useless. There's only 4-6 inches of water, and not even enough water to float a small boat/get it off the trailer. North Garrison bay is still usable, although getting shallower all the time. Red Door is your best bet if you want to fish the north end.

I agree with Myr Mar, more water out in front of there than in front of Red Door.

I agree w/ MyrMar. Be careful straight out from harbor(46.19.615-93.45.911) I polished my prop on a rock that doesn't show on map

Gents,

Thanks for all the great insights. Another direction with the questioning is where other than the north side is a good place to put in? Again appreciate y'all helping me out.

      Drove by Elysian on my way home this afternoon. Shoreline didn’t appear to be pulling away, view from the highway for what it’s worth.

      Got the property surveyed today. Originally plotted back in 1968 and sure enough there where metal pipes marking 3 of the corners but who knows how long it would have taken me to find them. They placed a monument on the missing corner. Hopefully this warm weather sticks around, need to remove some trees and get the wheel house moved in. Thanks everyone for your responses!

      Was out on the lake today. Easy 24-26" inches of hard ice yet.

      Drove around the entire lake today. From the road it looks like the warm weather has melted most of the snow. Only saw about a half dozen people fishing. Ice isn’t pulling away from shore yet. Stopped at the Borden access and walked out a bit, kicked myself for not bringing the fishing equipment, easy travel out there.

      interesting day fishing on 30 inches and 60 degrees out   no monsters but got a very round hybrid and some rock bass with neat eyes.

      Plastic PC is 3/4 x2 x3.5. Drilled shallow holes on the transom side for the adhesive to cling to. Pretty solid. Time will tell

      No shutoff needed. Take a photo of how you mounted your transducer Alex.

      Actually when I store the boat I take the unit off as well. Is it ok to have the power line just hanging out? Do I need a shut off switch?
