SRA Fishing and Fishing Access Improvements

Want to highlight some recent projects in progress or completed on a couple State Recreation Areas.  You can read the entire press release about a number of SRAs and recent projects, but here I just want to highlight those that will improve fishing and fishing access:

Two Rivers State Recreation Area

A new ADA-accessible fishing pier opened this spring thanks to a $224,000 public-private partnership matching memorial donations with federal funds.

Louisville State Recreation Area

A more than $1.2 million project underway to improve angler access and fishing success at Louisville State Recreation Area may be completed in June or July.

Lakes 1, 1A, 2, and 3 are getting ADA-accessible sidewalks, fishing piers, shallow, mid-, and deepwater artificial habitat structures to concentrate fish around access sites, and nonpublic boat ramp improvements. Lake 1A also will be dredged in the southwest bay to remove sediment and improve water quality. Funding sources for these enhancements is provided by federal Funds, Capital Maintenance Funds, and the Aquatic Habitat Program.
