Tuesday morning the Lake of the Woods County Board of Commissioners met via teleconference with County Commissioners from Koochiching County. The Koochiching county board voted unanimously to close the county owned Rainy River accesses which include the Upper Sioux landing.
Due to concerns about larger numbers of fishermen, Frontier landing, Nelson Park landing and Vidas landing were closed due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This decision will be reviewed April 14th at their next board meeting.
Lake of the Woods county board voted to close all county controlled right away landing that provide access to the Rainy River until further notice. This will be reviewed weekly.
Last night, the Baudette city council voted to close the two river accesses in Baudette, Peace Park and Timber Mill Park until further notice.
