Why block ac­cess to the river for fish­ing?

The Peterborough Examiner - - OPINION - Gary Fer­gu­son Aylmer St.

It is well known that be­hind Hol­i­day Inn it is a hot spot for sev­eral species of fish in­clud­ing muskie, small mouthed bass and wall­eye.

A cou­ple of months ago I went down and to my dis­may the city had in­stalled a dock that takes up al­most the en­tire area.

Fine, I could live with it be­cause you could still walk out and jig or cast. Fur­ther to my dis­may I went go down a few days ago and it’s fence off and locked.

The dumb­est thing about it is there have been no boats us­ing it for the past two weeks. Empty. And I led to be­lieve city coun­cil is so ob­tuse they be­lieve they have the right to ban fish­er­man in Peterborough from ac­cess­ing the river?

If the city owns the river and fish in it and claims own­er­ship show us the deed.
