There are many locations that are public property . I have not checked all of them out personally. Some like Prentice park and the boat club by anglers are no good because of debris. You can research property ownership at ASHLAND COUNTY. WI EXTREME. Despite what people may say you can access the shore at a lot of places. The Ashland County WI Extreme maps used to show the right of way,'' ROW '' as it would on on other counties extreme sites. BUT YOU CAN STILL FIGURE IT OUT. I do not know how to print out a map but I will give you addresses . These are all east of pamida which I consider to be the better places. I had a place up on Lake Park road to go to and also did well at Americinn therefore east of Bayview Park. between 2301-2401 lakeshore ROW between 2419-2501 Lakeshore ROW N25th ave E ROW EAST of 3401 Lake Park Road which is Bretting between 4117-4205 Lake Park Road ROW between 4221-4303 Lake Park road ROW between 4321-4401 Lake Park road ROW I dont advocate trespass but you have to know where you are, if in doubt ask the the neighbor, they will always tell you they own it, if you show them a map they are wrong.
SMELT LOCATIONS ASHLAND
Second Landing is the location I posted next to the rod and gun club. Never knew that is what it was called and never been there. Is there enough frontage to seine or is it too rocky
Since Ashland does not want our business my fishing group stays in Bayfield Co. We also eat and get our other necessities there. Has anyone ever fished Smelt on the Washburn side of bay with any success?
I see another spot located at 67004 sloughs lane, the parcel just west, of North Wisconsin rod and gun club, its owned by ASHLAND county. If you see a plot that says no parcels found it is city of ashland right of way. The maps used to have ROW posted on those but they dont anymore. The one next to Bretting goes to the lake then there are two parcels on either side that say city of ashland the one on the west goes halfway down the shore in front of Bretting.You will see it on the map.
