White Bear Boat Ramps

Recommended Posts

Buck Snort 2

I have been using the public boat ramp on the North shore of White Bear and quite frankly it sucks in the spring until they dredge it out.

I see a boat ramp down the shoreline (SW) for the public ramp that looks nice. I'm sure there is some stipulation for using it like being a citizen of WBL or joining a club or paying annual dues...

Does anyone know what 'price' a guy has to pay to be able to use that ramp?

Thanks in advance for any info.

Buck

Snort,

The ramp is at Kotaska (sp.) park. The fee is $15 for res. and $25 for non-res. Very nice ramp but not a lot of parking. I launch there and have had to search for a parking spot from time to time. I think there is a limited number of permits available. You can pay at the ramp and get a temp untill the sticker arrives in the mail.

I am heading for White Bear right now.

The access there can't be as bad as the "ramp" I dealt with on Saturday. grin.gif

Thanks (again) for the info Hugo (Dave).

I think I'm going to look into one of those $25 permits. I drive from N. St. Paul and end up fishing WBL quite a bit during the summer.
Maybe I'll see ya at the ramp or on the water.
I've got a Red 2004 Expedition pulling a Blue Lund 1700 Pro Sport, Yamaha 80 4-stroke.

Buck,

No problem. I will be there more often once the muskie season opens. I drive a black F150 supercrew and fish out of a green 1775 pro-v with a 150 merc.

See ya,
Dave

I was wondering do you have to pay a fee for the launches at most locations? I drove by on sunday and saw one that was $10 right off of 61. We didn't look too much for others, just wondering because I live about 20 min. from the lake and would like to try it out and not wanting to have to pay a fee. Thanks!


Good Fishin'...

Just got back from WBL (have to go to work frown.gif)

I managed 10 Crappies in the 9-11" range out of 6-10 feet of water...And some bonus C&R Bass too!

Not too bad...Found the Crappies right before I had to get going though.

Nice day to say the least.

Access wasn't in the best shape, and I'd say 4wd is a must. (I tried pulling out in 2wd, didn't get far)

Bill-E,

The Ramsey County Park access on the North end of the lake is free of charge. You'll probably end up getting in the water to manage your boat. As stated previously, it is in rough shape.

      My parents were up yesterday and Wednesday and they did pretty good. Out in the mud in about 33-34 feet. Lots of boats were trolling but they did well looking for pods of fish and then spot-locking over the top of them and jigging with leeches and frozen shiners.

      Hi, I’m looking for a fresh report for this weekend. Thanks in advance! Good Fishing!

      Is the water starting to recede on the lakes East of Orr? I heard it was really high on Myrtle. We're coming up to Black Duck in a week or so, just wondering if things are getting back more towards normal.

      I’ve fished sylvan heavily the last two years. Done very well. Many nice pike, bass, walleye, and bluegill. For pike trolling shadraps pretty much any where will get you all the 20”-25” pike you want. Plenty of dence cover all over for bass and that is the usual bass presentations. And for gills in the spring the channel between the two bays was VERY good this past spring went three days in a row and got 2 limits each time ( two angles in the boat) and relesed many many more.  Also the panfish limit on sylvan is 5 per person so be aware of that. I was out there 2 weeks ago and did ok. Again two limits of nice gills and a handful of pike but it took a lot of work to find them. I’m unsure of the walleye fishing out there but have heard it’s a good lake. Im not an expert on sylvan but know a little so hope this helps ya out. Good luck!

      Thanks Cliff. I am coming up for my week of paradise tomorrow as well.

      The last two times on the river have been slow to say the least. Trolled Shipping channels, river channels, and all the flats. Crawler harnesses and crank baits. Anybody having any luck out there?

      If the water is that clear and you can see 17-20 feet down, the fish will be very spooky.  And if the sun is out, they will be looking for relief from the sun in the form of shade.  Night time might actually be a better option.

      Not terrible.  But they can be merciless, I will tell you.

      below the darn is a park there too if I remember right, Plus Garden City has a park by the river too I think..
