How far is it from the Willow Creek ramp to the upper NY Indian waters ?

It is just around the corner of Willow bay to the reservation line. Maybe 500 yds as the crow flies. From there on up is res.

Thanks for the info. How far up do you usually go for walleye in the spring ? ( Mile wise)

Some guys go up as far as the depth of the water will let them, some stay down in Pa. Just depends on where you happen to find them that day (or hour).

I was wondering how far that is because I only have a 25 hp motor.

Action, If you want, you "can" go as far as the I-86 bridge, where it becomes too shallow to go any further. It's up there ~10-12 miles. Most guys don't go that far. Your 25 will get you to fish. Some guys never leave Willow Bay.

Thank you very much, that's the info I was looking for. :D

You may also want to try launching at "friends" boat launch on the indian res. Its a few miles up the road from willow bay towards rte.86.

I was checking for the DAV tourney, i've never been to the lake before.

25 hp WILL BE FINE FOR A TOURNAMENT OUT OF WILLOW. YOU CAN FISN DECENT AREAS IN PENNSYLVANIA AND THE RESERVATION. THAT'S WHAT I HAVE ON MY BOAT AND I WILL BE FISHING THE DAV OUT OF IT THIS YEAR. I'M NOT SURE IF I WILL DO THE CHAMBER'S KINZUA KENNY THOUGH. IT'S A MIGHTY LONG RUN TO THE RES FROM WOLFE RUN WITH A SMALL BOAT. ALTHOUGH WE'VE DONE IT A FEW TIMES.IF YOU HAVE NEVER FISHED THE DAV BEFORE I HIGHLY RECOMEND IT. KAWA DOES A TERRIFIC JOB AT THIS EVENT AND THE PROCEEDS GO TO AN EXCELLENT CAUSE.

If I remember right Big fish of the day was caught right in Willow Bay. Not positive if it was the KAWA DAV tourny??? I just remember that the big fish was caught about 2-3 pm. just before weigh-in.
Does anybody remember that?

Wasnt it Chad Yohe?

I agree with Swanee. I too run a 25hp (4stroke) on a 17.5 Smoker and fish the tournys out of Willow. Yeah, it takes a bit longer to get there- but the fish aren't in a hurry anyways!!! They're usually waiting for us when we get there. Come on May!!!!

Carl, if you would turn that boat around and go forwards, it wouldn't take so long!!!! lol.
04-04-2007, 03:02 PM
Good one Ed... Good one.. Maybe we all should go backwards.
04-04-2007, 09:31 PM
Geez Ed- Isn't the square end the front? Maybe it would go faster with the pointy end!!!!!
04-05-2007, 06:36 AM
If it would make you feel more comfortable, point the boat the right way and you could just turn around and face backwards, lol. No wonder Ferbie always looks like she needs a beer when I go by you!

Looking forward to visiting with our Willow Creek friends again. Kinda miss you guys over the winter. Just a few more weeks and we will be sitting in the Corydon having a few senior sodas with good friends while enjoying the beauty of Willow Creek.
Get ready Drunk Boy cause here we come!!!
