We canít afford to lose any more lake accesses


Dear Woods-N-Water News:

Recently I noticed 3 locations where "Public Access'' signs have been removed. Crooked Lake in Emmet County off US-31 at Mill Street and one across from Summer Field and US-31, Crooked Lake. I've fished these accesses for many years and am disgusted with the neighbors' attitudes. Another sign was removed at E. Caribou Lake Rd., Chippewa County off McDonald Rd. and South Caribou Lake Rd., a new subdivision, Beech Street on the left side of McDonald Rd. heading north. I reported these shortcomings to the State Police in Detour and Petoskey posts. I also reported them to the DNR at Detour and Newberry. I phoned RAP as told by the state troopers. The signs are still down, snow is pushed up so it is hard for me to get to the lakes. (I'm a DAV) I never heard a word from the DNR and don't think they really care anyway. We are losing access points just like the DNR has lost a million dollars. Rise up sportsmen and sportswomen. We can't afford to lose any more lake accesses like those taken away in Charlevoix County on Walloon Lake at the end of River Road.

Neighbors have told me not to park there and that there are no fish in the lake anyway. Yet, I'm still eating good fish from these lakes.

Very respectfully yours,

Norm Schultz Sr.
