04/16/2010 (Kevin) – Ellison County Park is a great “family” place to do a little fishing.  The park itself offers a Frisbee golf course, multi-purpose trails and plenty of places to access the creek and do a little fishing.

Linear Park offered a nice creek walk trail and some really nice water.  We spotted fish and fishermen.  I could see that just a couple of fisherman could spook the fish pretty quickly.  There is parking on the east and west ends of the park.

    Maybe you can please help us – we have heard from people that you can hike all the way from ellison to the bay on the old rifle range trail – since you seem to know the parks so well we could really use your insight as where to go. We start at the bay and hike the white trail all the way down to the red and black trail – then it just seems to stop and we hit parkview rd. the trail seemed to dead end in a washed out gully. Any ideas? no where online can we find a trail map that connects the two parks. Thanks for you time and help!
