The newspaper article I read said the Mississippi River will be open to recreational users. To me that includes waterfowl hunting. There were several boats out fishing today.

diverhunter50 wrote:The river in that area is all FEDERAL (doesn't matter if you are fishing or hunting), part of the Upper Mississippi Fish and Wildlife Refuge, this I am certain of. After reading several things, I am a little concerned about being able to hunt that area. It would be great if any one had information on specific closures (I have not found any). Most things I read state that access land owned by the feds are closed. Can they close the water if you have private access?
Commercial fisherman ARE allowed to continue to fish the federal water (Mississippi River at least).
All I know FOR SURE, is some boat ramps are open (and will remain open) and several people were recreating on the Mississippi River today!
And if I have an open boat ramp I will be recreating for the youth season next weekend there as well.
