small rivers

Recommended Posts

are there any tresspass laws to be aware of for accessing small rivers that run through private land I am under the assumption if water passes a under or within a feet of a roadway it is accessable and as long as your a certain amount of feet from the surface of the water while hunting .

Not as long as you access from a road right of way or public access and keep both feet in the water or stay in the boat. ( As far as I know )

dont own a canoe or drift type boat, but if I did it'd be lights out for the green heads. Just curiuos if you could walk down stream and set up a few deeks and be legal if sitting on the bank.

I have walked down rivers but the ones I hunt up here have catails along the shore so I just stand in those. could be a sticky situation I would call the CO luckyC sounds like you got a sweet spot to check out.

Water surface is public domain in MN. So if you are floating on or standing on the froozen water surface you are OK. If the stream runs through private land and If your feet are on the bottom you are probably standing on private land. I would ask for permission but that is just me. I don't enjoy my hunt if I am not completedly sure that I am in the right

Everything under the water is public as long as you got there without crossing private lands. Also, I think anything under the normal water line is public too. Bang em up

I'm not sure about everything under the water being public. If it were me I would ask the local C.O. They would be the one dealing with you.

Yea I know of a lake in sherburne county that under the water isnt puplic and they even closed what they used to call the puplic access. rivers are most likely differnt than that but the safest bet would be to contact the local CO and ask him/her about it.

    • Little late to the answers, but I switched over to NAP KILLZONE and could not be happier.  They are the cats meow.  I like them better than the Rage I was shooting before.  The pictures are from a doe I shot at 13 yards.  Needless to say she didn't go more than 30 yards before she piled up.
    • The whole reason behind getting a new bow is that my 17 year old son is now standing 6'3" and the little bear bow he has is too small for him.  He likes to bow hunt, but with sports and school activities he doesn't get out a ton, so i am going to crank down the poundage on my Elite and he wants to shoot that.  So Dad is in the market for a new bow.  I can't say a bad word about the Elite, its been a great bow for me.  I have always shot a double cam bow and was just looking for opinions about what other folks like.  Not sure if a solo cam will be smoother with the draw or not.  Soon as I have time, I want to get out and shoot some bows and see what I like.
    • Thanks MJ   It's nice for the picture and follow up video you catch a lot that gets missed after the picture.
    • i was just there on the 11th of Aug, yea i was way less then impressed with the cave. wont bother me none, but then again that wasthe first time in 5 years i've been in a cabelas.
    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
