By parachute, unless you know someone who lives on the lake which there are very few of. You used to be able, years ago, to park at the Retreat House but those days are long gone. Then there was a farmer over on the road just to the south of the lake,(Genesee Rd?) who would let you walk thru his land but again that was years ago. I suppose if the river is frozen from Lower Nemahbin you could walk that but it would be quite the hump. I don't know if there is anywhere to park so as to walk the Bark where it comes into Crooked. I have many fond memories of fishing Crooked. It's where I cut my teeth both ice fishing and open water fishing.

I would think that at the worst. you could drop the boats off at the road and make the 3 block walk from the park and ride. Drop off spot is a little tougher than it used to be

Thanks. Will a person be able to actually man handle a kayak or canoe from the road , down into the river , on the west side of the bridge as we've all done in the past , or have they engineered access out of that site ?

Ease of access will depend on the parking regs they post. There is a new parknride about 3 blocks away

How is the bridge and dam work coming along on Sawyer Road ? Are we still going to be able to access the river from there when they are finished or is the new bridge going to make that impossible?

Got out in the canoe with Fishindude for the afternoon. The fish were not cooperating, but a great time was had nontheless. Its not always about slaying them. The sky was clear, always beautiful on Crook, birds soaring around, and the company was good. We had a couple fun fish. A huge carp got snagged and we got it along side the boat. I wanted to land it for pictures, but it shook loose. fishindude estimated it at 32 inches. then we had a leaping pike that sommersaulted thru the air, so cool. That one was around 28 inches, still swimming
