First Spring Ride

Recommended Posts

Well the snow is finally melting a little. Starting to get jazzed about a little riding other than on the lake.

I am out of Elk River area and have been through a few of the closer places. Red Top, Pine City. But any other tips or places that you would reccomend.

Anyone looking to set a ride date and head out here when we can. Let me know. --Ride on

I was hoping to get to the north shore to ride the Moose walk and Red Dot last year but the fuel prices kept me home.

If the prices stay down, I'll try to get up there this summer. Take note of the ATV parade thread at the top of the forums. It's more people than I care to ride with in the same location though.

Nemadji is one of my fav's. I usually get there once a year.

Keep an eye on the forums here. I try to get a ride set up every year.

Nemadji is my all around favorite. Especially if you get off the main trails and find the narrow technical trails that go through the woods. We seldom see anybody else when we ride those. There's a ton of trails that hardly get used. Just gotta look for em. All legal to ride on too.

Agreed. many tighter, more techinical trails in Nemadji that are marked for ATV use. Gotta be careful not to tread onto the OHM trails though.

There are several trails that are now open to Class 2 ATVs. There some in Nemadji, I think Red Top.

The DNR has all of their trails maps updated with trails where Class 2 machines are permitted.

There have been days I encountered 20 other machines in Nemadji but it's never been an issue.

The trail head in the middle of Nemadji is maybe 3-4 miles from Nickerson tops. One trail comes out within a couple miles of Duquette if you need fuel of a bite to eat.

  • Your Responses - Share & Have Fun :)

    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
    • Rick didn't like all the "My Grills bigger and better then yours" posts!  😅
    • We switched to a new server. Had a glitch in our dB that lost a couple days of posts.
    • I ripped a hole in one of my favorite pairs of fishing shorts just need a decent sized patch to cover her up
    • I am not sure what happened either but we lost all of the posts last couple days not just this thread. And it looks like the same thing happened over on FM site as well. I know the site was down last night while I tried look at it.
