Rice creek?

5 posts in this topic

Has anyone ever paddled any strech of it? I am trying to find something close to home to hit this weekend. Any info on where you got in and out. I've heard of people doing it but i can seem to find any info.

i've paddled a bunch of it - its not too bad this time of year, but later on in the summer it gets really low. There are plenty of put ins or you could just go in off a road crossing if you really wanted to. You might as well go paddle the rum, its not that much further and its way cooler imo

I've been on the rum 5 times this year all ready. I'll be back out on it when i can start fishing for some smallies.

My buddy did Rice Creek last friday. He did a huge stretch, but I'm not sure on the details I'll try to find out more.

Most people put in at the Mermaid. Not sure what the parking rules are since I haven't paddled it since I was a kid, living in the area. You can exit at Long Lake if you wanted(or put in at that point if you wanted) or continue downstream to the Mississippi with many potential take out points. Not the most exciting paddle but it is getting your canoe wet which is better than sitting around watching NASCAR or the NFL draft(sorry fans). The Rum, in my opinion, is a better paddle. The St. Croix isn't too far from Roseville, either. If you wouldn't mind driving a bit further, I'd really suggest trying the Kettle. That's fun this time of year. Snake River is a good paddle, too, without driving too far.
