Yeah, parked my car in a lot that said, "Boat Trailer Parking: 5$" This place sees maybe 10 people a week.

It was a $35 ticket and I am less than impressed with Three Rivers Parks.

You may want to give the park a call. I've had some that will let you buy a season parking pass and then consider the ticket paid for.

For sure you can do that in some minneapolis pay lots. I think our ticket was $35 and they let us buy the $25 season pass instead of paying the ticket. I don't think we ever used the pass again but it did save us $10.

It might be worth a try. I've never been to 3 rivers so I am not sure how they handle their parking/tickets/passes.

fish lake in maple grove

Same lake for me. I forgot to write the License plate # down on my buddies truck and there was only a couple trucks there too. My fault but he still could've looked at the ticket and seen Ford - Black - Year etc and figured it out. It was $35

I always love the threads about tickets. 99.9% of the time it's the person parking that either forgot to pay, didn't know to pay or didn't write down all the info and then they get mad at the person that gave them a ticket.

I hate tickets as well, but if you messed up you have to suck it up and pay the fine. It was on you to know the rules.

I agree with nofish that if you call the park they may just let you buy a season pass, worth a try anyway.

Hey hardwaterguy, I know where your coming from. I've been nailed with a few parking tickets over the past couple of years fishing new lakes (all 3 rivers parks). I've complained about this many times, but the lack of signage and brown coloration of the payboxes make it pretty darn difficult to identify. As others have suggested....you can usually have the fine go towards an annual pass for 3 rivers parks. Good luck.

Do you have to pay in Murphy-Hanrehan Park Reserve, I know that that is a three rivers park. Just curios. I did get a ticket this winter for using the wrong access. Boy was that a expensive lesson to learn, I think it was like $130.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)

      We just returned this afternoon from 6 days on Vermilion. We arrived Saturday and enjoyed 3 fantastic days of walleye fishing. My cousin, our friend Greg, and myself fished several of our spring spots and found fish on all of them. Water temperatures were pretty much 65-67 degrees everywhere we fished. The wind was variable and made boat control a challenge at times. Bait was not an issue and we had success on crawlers(Tim), leeches(Greg), and minnows(me). If I had to pick one of those as catching the most fish, it would be crawlers. Our best day totalled 48 walleyes, 4 smallmouth, and 2 big JUMBOS. We ended up with over a hundred walleyes, 12 jumbos 11"-13", and 10 smallmouth to 18". Our biggest walleye was 24.5" and the balance went from 13"-22". There are lots of 14"-16" walleyes this year which are perfect eaters. The mayfly hatch was in full bloom in some areas but we found very few mayflies in the water column over rock reefs. We caught our fish in depths ranging from 10' to 32'. I didn't fish in any area where I could see mayflies top to bottom in the water column. Slow trolling in the .3mph to .6mph worked and we caught nothing using slip bobbers. Terminal tackle was a 3'-4' 10# flurocarbon leader, 2 lime colored beads, and a plain #6 Gamakatsu walleye hook . Snags are always an issue when fishing in and around the rocks and when the fish are biting they are acceptable. NOW, for the bad news.......Tuesday was a day I won't soon forget. The area suffered devastating torrential rainfall. Lightning was non-stop for several hours and when things settled down, flood damage was everywhere. We checked our rain guage on the side of the cabin and we got 7 3/4 " in a little over 4 hours! Breezy Point road washed out, Mud Creek road washed out as did several others in the area. Cooke business area was completely covered with flood water. I would consider it a disaster area and should be declared as such. We couldn't find a dock anywhere that wasn't covered with water. People were stranded behind flood covered and washed out roads. Dock decking, limbs and such were floating everywhere in the big water. My group sends our prayers to the people of that beautiful country that lost their businesses, homes, and suffered damage to their lake properties. The people of that north country are resilient and we have confidence that they will recover. We stayed our final 3 days but didn't fish at all Tuesday. Our last 2 days showed the effects of the storm. Water temps dropped to 64 degrees and our premo fishing became 10 walleye days. We did manage to catch a dozen really nice jumbos. We plan on returning in September and we pray the area will have returned to normal by then. I haven't figured out how to transfer photos from my phone to my computer yet so no pictures at this time. Good Fishing and God be with you. MarkB

      Word is that the river has peaked and therefore the town can start the process of recovering sooner.
    • smurfy
      Heard that too. Also heard 38 was closed for a but north of rapids due to flooding.    I know the water really came up when I was up last week compared to when I was there in April.
