I attended a meeting last night in Oscoda for a proposed fish ladder project. The meeting was for public comment on the project by the MDNR. Funding has been secured and preliminary enginneering has been completed. The ladder would allow unresticted movement of cold water species through Van Etten Lake into the Pine River at the north end. It would also allow warm water fish to enter and exit the lake at will. It sounded like there was support of the project by lake property owners and concerned citizens and could be constucted this year. Estimated cost $350,000.
