Nice spot to tie my boat blind up to for duck hunting this fall.

Here's a pic of the area so we all know what were BSing about!
I'm sure the folks on West River arent enjoying there new scenery.
What your seeing is not prep for the pier. The excavation along the shore is part of a project to bring emergent wetland back along the shore. If my memory is right they relaxed the shoreline back to ease the slope, then are planting wetland vegetation along the entire shore. By next growing season my guess is it will be green again...Andy
Yep, that's the plan. Should look great next year, and even better the year after.
Let's hope they can keep the phragmite out of there, or as one of my professors would say, "friggin' phrag!"
"friggin' phrag!''- "Now that's funny-I don't Care Who You Are", Larry once said!!!
Went straight to the link, and what did I see?
Converting an industrial brownfield (read: nasty, polluted industrial land) into a wildlife refuge and recreation area. Adding an emergent wetland (which will help bioremediate the brownfield) and a fishing pier built well out into deep water, which will give shore fishers better access.
And people on a "Sportsman's Forum" are ranting against it???
Wonders never cease...
And, speaking of strange primate behavior, let's hope people do use the trash cans.
Anyone know if this project is still going to take place?
Last I read they're still short on money. Believe it was about 1.5 million short, but I wouldn't count on my memory. I drive by there all the time and wonder to myself why they would even start the project if they didn't have all the money up front? Doesn't make sense. There are a couple guys on here that really follow it and will probably chirp in. I've been keeping up on it pretty half-*ss.
I like the idea and the plan. It will bring more future fisherman to access good fishing areas from the shoreline. I hope that the plan for the education vessel to be docked there takes shape also, nice to see young ones interested in the outdoors. There is plenty of acreage elsewhere to "lose" your lead and fireline to the bottom contours along that area. My only hope is that they build a nice restroom close to the dock, one that actually has a door on the crapper would be nice, unlike elizabeth's fine one holer.
good to see some shore access for people without boats. we are all fisherman and everyone deserves to fish the area.
its alright guys the shore fisherman wont scare the walleye away
It's GREAT that some shore bound angler may get a shot at what we all take for granted. Plenty of room for all of us. Capnhook
This will be all snagging here.
You're right, forgot about that. Time to open another bait shop.
