Yeah... the landing will be closed from July 6 to Dec 1 for parking lot reconstruction. There is the city launch by the island that charges a fee and is very shallow. The fee is $35 for non white bear lake residents $25 for residents. The landing has about 16 spaces to park, they will be full once Ramsey closes so prepare to walk a long ways from where you park.
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
