ramps

Hi everyone,

I plan on fishing the north metro sections of the river for the first time this year and am wondering if there are any resources with a list of ramps and their locations and descriptions. I'm a little intimidated by this section of the river (17 foot alumacraft) and am having a hard time putting all the information in this forum together. Is there a book or something I should have?

One good suggestion is to talk to Jack at Actions Fishing in anoka... He has maps and cen tell you a lot about the river up here...You can pretty much fish anywhere south of the 169 bridge in champlin down to the dam. Going up river from there is a little changeling..( just look at river dogs prop...lol )

Thanks. Looks to me like Mississippi point park is the right access for that stretch. Is that ramp OK on the weekends or is it tough to get a parking spot? Thanks again.

There are 2 ramps in the area one is on the Champlin side not sure on the name of the park. The one on the Anoka side which is up the Rum River, to get there you need to go to Main st in Anoka and turn S on 2nd Ave and it is about 4 blocks down on the right. Not much parking and it fills up fast on the weekend pretty good during the week though.

      My opinion no. Nest maybe but time will tell.

      Don I'm surprised as how much the river sections are opening up. Checked from the 71 bridge towards Cold Spring and there's actually a bunch of open sections. Noticed the honey hole area, in the rivers mouth entering cedar island is really going quick also. Definitely looking better for a possible ice out on the lakes on the chain. Time will tell

      went out tonight and found between 24 to 28 inches of ice away from the current areas.    The river is now poking into shoe about 100 yards.   Don

      Great Time today! We didn't put the slam to them  but boy did I enjoy the day. I know I did a lot  more relaxing and jaw jacking today then fishing LOL! But after as many days as I have spent on the ice my  thought process lately has been been there done that this winter,   so really didn't go at it to hard.   My Ice season is comeing to a end and today I was alright with that.  It was a day of laughs, great eats and some serious relaxation among a great group of guys. I know I wish I would of put some sunscreen on the face wow Hot tomato LOl! Bet Joe is hurting also he looked a little pink mid day. Thanks Royce, Rick G , Joe and his father for the good times., we have  done a few of these mini get togehter's this winter and I believe our friendships have grown stronger everytime we share the ice together.  Looking forward to possibly another outing if not open water is just around the corner
