New Regs Proposed for St. Croix

Recommended Posts

Turk

Bruce is right!

At the last meeting this "partnership" presented a proposal to stop anchoring withing 50' of shoreline! and no anchoring in the no wake zones!!!

Read the above again - no anchoring within 50' of the shoreline?? You like to anchor at the Kinni and catch fish? Well you may soon be a law breaker!!! No kidding.

The next meeting is Wednesday October 15 at 7:00 pm in the Community Room at St. Croix County Governement Center
1101 Carmichael Rd.
Hudson , WI

The "partnership" is also creating a new no wake zone from near sunnyside Marina.

Did you know that, if the Lower St. Croix Partnership Team has it's way, there will be a whole host of new regulations regarding anchorage in nav channels, new no wake zones, and speed restrictions?

If these regs get thru the process your access to the St. Croix River's best fishing will either take longer or be limited to outside of the navigational channels.

Get involved it the process and help protect the access to the river; http://www.mnpba.com is a not for profit organization that is fighting the establishment to prevent any NEW regulations regarding these topics and we need your help.

I think the adjusted speed limits north of the Stillwater bridge are the best thing thats come along in years. I have tried to fish this area while water skiers barely miss my boat. But I don't understand the anchorage restrictions.

      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
