Just talked with a guy from a motel in the area about his shuttle service and we were talking about putting in and taking out locations.

Told me the town sold the launch at the 191 bridge to some private guy and he now charges to use the site . Something about a charge per use or you can join some club for $500.00. FYI

I experienced that last year early season,, went down there and he pulled in shortly after to say it is his land (private property) I told him I didn't know..perhaps he has private property no trespassing  signs by now !

Gene is a super nice guy.  He and his wife Ines know all of the put in and take outs for the entire system.

That launch/take-out site is now owned by Coz of Border Waters Outfitters.  Besides charging for use of the facility he now rents kayaks there.

I wish there was some way that NY and PA would be able to increase access to the river.  It's a shame that landowners can't be compensated for allowing more access.  I also imagine that the railroad tracks greatly add to any possible access agreements.  There is so much water on these rivers that is difficult to access.  There are people who have lots of knowledge of these issues and I'm sure much has been considered.  I don't deny anyone their rights to fish by boat but I don't care for the increase in boat traffic.  Kayak rentals might add to increased use of the river by non-fishing recreational users.  The increased use of pontoon boats, canoes, kayaks, etc. are a symptom of an access problem. I have a kayak but personally don't find it worthwhile to use to fish from in these rivers.  Drift boats are very functional to fish from and are in a different class.
