Big Rock Campground

6 posts in this topic

I'm guessing the campground isn't officially open yet, but does anyone think I'd be able to set up a tent there this weekend? I'm solo this weekend, so if I'm not able to camp, there's always the back seat of my truck. Also curious about the snow depths back in the woods. Thanks

I believe they got close to 8" up in that area yesterday and things are pretty sloppy right now up here.

Had the campground to myself this weekend. There was one spot just big enough for my tent, that was clear of snow. The rivers were pretty ugly. I checked 3 different rivers and all were about 34 degrees and muddy. I had a couple bumps on yarn and saw one fish landed, but there just aren't that many fish in the rivers right now. I contemplated driving over to the Brule, but explored a couple new rivers for later in the month instead. Plenty of guys still ice fishing, 4 guys out in front of the Sioux, 1/2 doz. out from the coal dock and a few groups you could barely see on the Ashland side.

Well, if you were over that way, you and everyone else fishing was illegal. Those streams open with the inland opener.

This is copied out of the regs:

Lake Superior Streams

(all are located in Ashland, Bayfi eld, Douglas and Iron

Counties)

All streams fl owing into Lake Superior have the following

regulations from their mouths upstream to the fi rst impassable

permanent barrier unless listed in specifi c waters listed by county:

Open season: May 2 at 5:00 a.m. to September 30

Daily bag limit: 5 trout and salmon in total, only 2 of which

may be brown trout over 15" and only 1 of which may be a

rainbow trout

Size limit: brook trout 8", brown trout 10", salmon 12", & rainbow

trout 26"

"unless listed in specifi c waters listed by county:"

Recheck the regs Roe. The 3 rivers I fished all opened up on the 28th. The Sioux-downstream from the big rock, Fish Creek, and the Cranberry. I appreciate your concern for my legality, but it is indeed intact.

My apologies. I'll admit i was not in the know on that and thought the Brule was the only one open...

    • Don't worry Chuck......PF has your back.
    • It's just sooooooooo easy.
    • Speaking of Russia:   A timeline of recent events. 11/28/16 - " Trump’s campaign took him up on it in March. From those meetings, Nunes grew close with retired Army Lt. Gen. Michael Flynn, a top Trump hand who has just been nominated to be the president-elect’s national security adviser. 2/13/- 1) Flynn gets recorded by Intel agencies, we know he discussed sanctions and 2) it was part of a "Peace Plan" involving Cohen, Sater and a Ukranian named Alex Oronov 3) who is now dead. 2/16 - Flynn faces no FBI charges Source 3/20 - Comey announces FBI investigation into members of Trump campaign. Repubs, including Nunes, spend a great deal of it concerned about Unmasking of Flynn from incidental collection. Source 3/22 - Nunes spends his week freaking out about possible incidental collection he's been told about from an unknown source, immediately warns Trump. Source Now to go back to January, Who happened to be at the Breakfast with Flynn in January involving Turkey? Nunes. Where did it happen? Trump hotel in Washington. Source  3/22 - The House Oversight Committee on Wednesday requested documents related to ousted National Security Adviser Michael Flynn from the White House, FBI, Department of Defense and Office of the Director of National Intelligence. Source 3/22 - Schiff now claims there's "More than circumstantial evidence of Collusion (Unrelated to Nunes new info) Source 3/23 - CNN story drops that "The FBI has information that indicates associates of President Donald Trump communicated with suspected Russian operatives to possibly coordinate the release of information damaging to Hillary Clinton's campaign, The FBI is now reviewing that information, which includes human intelligence, travel, business and phone records and accounts of in-person meetings ." Source 3/24 - Nunes cancels 2nd open hearing with Intel Committee, seemingly for no reason. Source - Albeit today we learned Sally Yates was going to talk about Michael Flynn at this hearing. 3/24 - Manafort, Stone and Page all more or less simultaneously agree to speak with Intel Committee. Source 3/24 - National Inquirer (owned by Trump's friend) very oddly throws Flynn under the bus. Source 3/25 - Claim that Flynn may have cut a deal Source It seems Flynn may be spilling the beans here, which would not bode well for Trump.   Also I didn't even get to today's news about Kushner and Russia.     What do we know VEB? It ran a spy ring in New York City. Here's another fun coincidence:     Prosecuted by our now removed district attorney.
