Boat Ramp Docks

Recommended Posts

Hopefully the weather improves next week to get the boat out. If anyone notices docks in at the boat ramps around the area post it here.

Most of the lakes around my area docks go in toward the end of April

I would think the more popular panny lakes are the ones they put in first.

You could check with fisheries, to find out when they will put in docks at different lakes.

Sparcebag,

I used to work at trails and waterways, during the summer while in college, and they just picked a day after ice out when we had time. There are 3 guys working there. 1 working year round and the others working I believe 8 months. When the 3rd guy comes back on around this time they put the docks out. We were based out of New London but we put in all the docks in around here. We go all the way out to bigstone, then follow the river to the docks on Lac and over to artichoke, we continued to mow access all the way down the river to the access on the river where Highway 71 crosses. But no docks on the river to put in.

      Sure. The good thing is if you have too many cocktails and fall off the dock you will not have to worry about drowning.  People are going to have a long walk to go swimming out of the Waskish beach. Hard to believe that 3 years ago the dock floated up off the support poles so we had to put in a few longer ones. The dock was right up to the predator guard below the wood duck houses.

      Hey would someone that lives close by the Hatchery let me know when they are stripping eggs this year? Shouldn't be too far off.

      Here are a few photos taken off of my dock which is straight across the Pike River from the Hatchery. Only a day or two more before it opens up here on the river! The second picture is looking toward the dam.

      Your Right! after clicking on the picture a couple times and zooming in you can see the big white head of the male hooded mergaser.

      According to the Army Corp of Engineers weather station here in Waskish we have had a grand total of  1.29 inches of precipitation so far in 2018.  When we were burning the grass of there was still about 30% snow cover. The flames were hitting 10 feet high.

      Nice to see there might actually be some ice melting up that way! jkrash, those are hooded mergansers though.   I might’ve called out my first woodie sighting this year as one of those too.  But nah!  I know what I saw had to be woodie! Haha! Seriously though, I’ve seen more, and more variety of ducks this spring than ever  in my life.  The late lake ice outs have made the river a diver Mecca.  I think I saw a few with Ely or bust signs on em too!  The bulk of woodies have been in the Little Falls area for about a week, some for a couple.  The hoodeds have been here for at least a month. They’re all coming though!
