2022 Season & Hours:
Opening March 24th, 2022 through October 31st, 2022.
Open 7am to 5pm Tuesday thru Sunday (CLOSED MONDAYS)
*Note: If there happens to be a day with severe weather (i.e. high winds), we may decide not to open the float that day, but we will update our facebook page with this information to let everyone know as soon as possible.
Cost is $25 for adults and $5 for children 12 and under (Cash Only). Note: We offer highly discounted rates for children as we firmly believe that it's important to introduce children to the outdoors.
What's Included In the Price:
You get a ride in the pontoon boat out to the float, up to 10 hours of fishing on the river, and a ride back to the parking lot when you're done fishing for the day. We pick up and drop off on the hour. See pricing for rentals below if you aren't bringing your own equipment.
Pricing for Equipment Rentals:
Rod Rental: $10/day
Rod Holder Rental: $3/day
We also offer a large variety of bait and tackle in the bait shop for purchase including live bait such as night-crawlers and leeches.
From the Parking Lot to the Float:
After parking in the public river access parking lot, head down to the boat landing and flip the sign open to blaze orange (see pictures below), signifying that you are ready to be picked up and brought over to the float via boat. We pick people up and drop them off on the hour.
The "Best Dam Fishing Float" is a floating dock located just below Lock and Dam Number 7, La Crosse, WI 54603.
Our address can be somewhat of a mystery. We technically do not have an address.
If you're using Google Maps, use "Upper I-90 Mississippi River Public Water Access, La Crescent, MN 55947" as your destination, and this will take you to the public boat launch parking lot where we will pick you up.
If you're using Apple Maps, use "Lock and Dam No. 7, La Crescent, MN 55947" and look for the signs leading to the public boat launch parking lot.
We pick up and drop off on the hour.
Hope to see you on the float soon!!!!
