Suamico Citgo (1535 Sunset Beach Road, next to Burger King) is a vendor for our Annual Boat Launch Stickers. Feel free to pay them a visit to purchase your pass in person if you wish.
Foxpoint1, you can purchase them online at the Brown County Park and Rec page. You have to create an account with them and then select Annual Passes and you will find the Launch passes there. They are mailed to you but a printed copy of the receipt is good at the launch until your sticker shows up.
Foxpoint , I bought my Brown Co. Launch pass in Wrightstown. I believe that qualifies for Bayshore. I live in town and will check if they are open. Not sure if you live in the area?
Need to get annual launch permit, finding out every place I know is closed.
So I emailed the parks department for further clarification. The response I got back says those parking lot repairs are starting the week of April 13th...probably wasn't today with that weather. Repairs are expected to take a few weeks but they are hopeful to have everything done and ready for the fishing opener. Meanwhile shore fishing is allowed but the gate at the top will be closed thus allowing walking only.
Let's hope they get some favorable weather!
There used to be a ramp at Red River years ago but the water got so low it was removed. Kewaunee County will spend money on a new ramp in Kewaunee before they do anything at Red River. Brown County has bigger things to worry about than the Bayshore boat landing. The parking lot has to be partially repaved just to start. I would think that the strong winds forecasted for Monday will make things even worse at Bayshore.
Would hope they could start work a few weeks earlier so ramps in and ready by opener, already a severe shortage of launching ramps, Kewaunee county needs to wake up and do something at Red River only county on Bay without a ramp
Looked at the live cam, and a message under the live feed says that repairs will start the last week of April and are expected to take a few weeks. Are they trying to say no ramps will be in for the opener and beyond too?
Anyone have any further details? Or just expect that many more people at the other landings for a while (assuming Covid allows people to fish)?
Boomenator, you can access at lipskys and red River fairly easy but you will need to drag a sled as it's too thin to drive on right now. It's slushy snow so it will be a little tougher to get across. I believe you will need to walk down the hill at Bayshore as they have the road closed.
I am looking to try for whitefish in Dyksville tomorrow. I am driving several hours away and I have several health issues and can't pull my shanty or walk to far. How is the travel off of Bay Shore or Lipsky's and how far out do you need to go. Can you drive or is it Atv and snowmobile only. I know this is a lot to ask but I told myself that I wanted to do this at least one time before my surgery which I will be laid up for quite some time. Any help will be great. I can also trade info for other lakes.
