Kenora Area Question

Recommended Posts

Does anyone know the road number or have directions on how to get to Jones or the Jones Road Wilderness Area northeast of Kenora?? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

coming from either the west or east take 17a, which is the kenora bypass off of 17. Then north on #671 (jones road).

Fishnut, don't know how far your going on it but that road can be kind of a nightmare. It is barely wide enough for 2 vehicles and is full of blind hills and curves. Just plan a little extra travel time, take it slow, and stay waaaay over on your side of the road in the curves and you'll be fine... Good Luck!

isn't the road that will take you to Grassy Narrows reservation? i remember a Jones Rd and yes the road has mucho curves and hilly. I was up there 2 years ago in the fall. I thought it was a fun road to drive but then I was following someone too. It is paved too by the way. Hey fishnut, next time you talk to dad ask him about it. and if you need to know anything else about certain routes in the U.S you can call me. lol

It is the road up to Grassy as posted here as I can see it on the map. I don't care how windy the road is, it goes by a lot of lakes that seem to be off the beaten path. I see it as a place to do some exploring, especially if I can get your dad to come along and make an adventure out of it for a day or more.

Should be fun.

Call me at home most any evening. I am going to try to talk to your dad tonight if I can remember to call before the head hits the pillow. Am making a panfish trip early Saturday if you are interested. Let me know if you will be in town.

Saw you leaving church today. Was driving Nessa's car. Went Saturday to my buddy's house and between 5 people we iced close to 200 sunfish and 10 crappies. Me and the Bug had our limits of sunfish by noon. Spent all afternoon today cleaning fish and cleaning up the mess. They sure will be good to eat though.

Took that panfish trip and did over 100 gills and 7 crappies for the day with 5 people. Bug really found the hot hole and her and I iced our limits by noon that day. Wound up with over 200 fish caught between all the people. Great trip to be there with the youngest daughter.

    • I’m in a similar situation right now and I am “freaking out” how did it work out for you what paper work did you file? Who did you reach out to?
    • Did someone pee in your charcoal 😁?
    • I like to see the fish that gets away verses not. A few weeks ago, I was trolling for walleyes on the SLR and while reeling one in, something grabbed a hold of it and fought hard for a while but chewed the walleye pretty bad. Trolled over the same are 20 minutes later and caught another walleye and this time it didn't let go and I saw what was eating my walleyes and it was a huge musky that got close to the boat and snapped the line and left with my crankbait and fish. So, the one I saw that "got away" was a cooler sight than the mystery fish that attacked my walleye that I never got to see earlier that day
    • Besides the motor on the back, I don't see much a difference between an old boat and a new boat.   It's not like new boats parallel park themselves.           
    • and still end up with an old boat as was said earlier.  I think it's more a labor of love for what we have...
    • looks like it got corrected! thanks Rick
    • Looks fine to me @rundrave :D
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Surface water temperatures range from 65 in the morning reaching low 70s during the late afternoon. 

      Minnesota has been best in shallower areas such as the Flag Island Flats (5-9 ft.) Prime time being the evening bite with many nice fish including a 31" beast. Deeper water around Four Blocks and LIttle Oak are providing good action for Walleye/Sauger. Orange has been the top color. Even with the recent Mayfly hatch and plenty of crayfish in fishes bellies, (Walleye, Sauger and Northerns) the fishing is awesome!

      Canadian fishing has been the best using bottom bouncers in the mud with gold being the most productive color spinners. Jigging will produce fish around structure with larger Walleye/Sauger coming out of 26+ feet of water. Pike and Muskie action is somewhat concentrated to underwater weeds or occasionally while jigging for walleye.

      We hope to see you soon!

    • I think you'd probably have to develop connections to find the right boats at the right price.  If you could also increase the number of boats you do in a given season you could also start buying some materials in bulk which would help drive material costs down.  Still I'm guessing margins would be relatively thin, certainly not a get rich quick scheme.
