Wife and I are going camping next week, we usually camp on Islands and she's not about to change her mind. Most of the sites we've stayed at in the past won't work any more. She uses a walker most of the time or a cane for balance. Anyone know of a good Island site? needs to be level and gradual slope to tent area. I saw a nice handicapped site on Namakan a few years ago but don't know if I could find it again. Would like Ely area or Crane-Kab area.

Thanks

WD,

The handicapped site is still available on Namakan. It is on the way up towards kettle Falls, just before Mica island. I would guess it is 8-9 miles from the Ash river access. You can contact the Park Service and reserve this site. It has a nice dock that can accomodate a wheelchair. It is site N41 on the park map. Pull up nps dot gov and find Voyageurs for all the numbers and maps to look at. Have a good stay wherever you go. I'll be up on Nam for a week starting next weekend.

Xplorer,

Thanks, I didn't know you could reserve these sites, hopefully it's still open.

Im not 100% sure but I think you can only reserve the handicapped spot.

Yup, the handicapped site on Nam and the Large group site on the north shore of Kab are the only ones that can be reserved.

Xplorer,

Called today and was able to reserve the site for July 21-24, also 4 days in August. Thanks again, wife is thrilled to be able to get out again.

WD,

Great to hear that it was open! I've only stopped in the site once for lunch 7 years ago, i remember it was nice and flat tho with a good sized dock. The end of theh dock had about an 8'x8' platform with railings if I recall. Also, that site is only about a 4-5 mile easy ride to Kettle Falls. They will call a golf cart for a ride if you want to go up to the hotel/bar.

I will be camping with the family up on the islands somewhere on Nam from this sunday to the 18th, so I'll be able to give you the 411 on what the fish are doing. Eye's will be heading toward/on the reefs, smallies shallower on the rocky windblown shorelines.

      Might not have to wear ear plugs when I mow!      That’s a spendy one.  It wasn’t hard to find one of those for $6k.  Comparatively and Ariens of the same size is $4,200.  A home owner grade JD for $3,900.  You could get into a commercial grade Z700 for maybe $8k.   I think the work I did today with mine would’ve killed that one there.

      On the south end...   This year's MN Fishing Opener weekend was not only great weather wise, the walleyes and saugers were caught in good numbers.  A main fish gut hauler working with a number of resorts commented it was one of the most productive opening weekends he has seen based on the amount of fish guts collected after the weekend. The goto presentation was a jig and frozen emerald shiner.  Emerald shiners are a staple in LOW and walleyes love them.  Other minnows worked also, but emerald shiners are a favorite of anglers for good reason.   Four Mile Bay held good walleyes in 12 - 18'.  Not a surprise as the walleye bite on the river during the spring season was good and as of late, sturgeon anglers have been reporting catching walleyes on sturgeon rigs.   The Lighthouse Gap area, Morris Point Gap and just in front of Pine Island held nice fish in 12 - 15'.  Across the south shore, 18 - 22' was holding good numbers as well.  As you can see, there are lots of fish around.     A quarter ounce jig in gold, glow white, pink, orange, chartreuse, or a combo of these colors tipped with a minnow worked well.   As a reminder, the limit of walleyes and saugers is a combined limit of six fish, up to four of the six can be walleyes.  All walleyes between 19.5 - 28.0 inches must be released.  One fish over 28.0 inches can be kept.  The possession limit in MN is one daily limit of fish. On the Rainy River...  Some nice walleyes were caught on the river this weekend, although most anglers hit the lake.  10 - 15' of water was the norm.     Sturgeon fishing on the Rainy River has been excellent.  The catch and release season continues through May 15th and then closes until the keep season starts up again July 1st. Up at the NW Angle...  Some nice walleyes were caught in 18 - 25 feet of water, a little deeper than anticipated.  Points were good as were areas with structure.  The morning and evening bite was best.       As water continues to warm, go to spots for walleyes will be neck down areas, shoreline breaks, points and bays.     The goto presentation was a jig and minnow.
