Rainy River all but nixed
« on: April 25, 2020, 06:25:39 PM »
Spring walleye fishing on Rainy River all but nixed with access closures. :tut:

 :reporter; March 25, 2020 :popcorn:

 :doah: .....
The Koochiching County Board on Tuesday voted unanimously to close numerous county-owned Rainy River accesses.

The accesses include Upper Sioux landing, Frontier landing, Nelson Park landing and Vidas landing due to concerns of large numbers of anglers coming into the area in light of the coronavirus pandemic. The decision will be reviewed April 14  :embarrassed: at the next board meeting, the board said.

In addition, the Lake of the Woods County Board voted to close all county-controlled landings that provide access to the Rainy River, until further notice. This will be reviewed weekly. :angry:

And Monday night, the Baudette City Council voted to close the two river accesses in Baudette Peace Park and Timber Mill Park until further notice.  :confused:

That is real old news.  It says March 25.  This is April 25.  I drove up to Wheelers Point access.  That is where the resorts are and where the river hits Four Mile Bay.  There were between 80 and 90 trucks and trailers there.  I tried to count them.  SO that is a close number.
