1st Annual Middle Manistee River Cleanup

**************************************************************************************************
Note these changes:

The Walton Junction Sportsman Club has backed out of this project.

One of their members died and his memorial service is on this day.

There has been a change in the plan:

 1. We will start at the bridge on Fahrley Rd and paddle to US131.
That shortens the trip by 4+ miles but it's still a long trip.

44.505116, -85.311883

2.  I will bring lunch for everyone.  You bring your own water.
Lunch will be BLTs from Subway.
If that doesn't work for you, let me know what does.

3. We will have a shuttle service, so carpooling is not a priority.

This is a grant project, so some extra paperwork may be needed.


Lucas Landing - Manistee River (Fahrney Rd)
Coordinates: 44.505133, -85.311863
The Club's Directions SUCK!

From anywhere north of Fife Lake:
Find US131.  Either in Kalkaska or any other way you can.
Go south until you PASS Fife Lake turnoff.  DO NOT GO TO FIFE LAKE!.
Go south until you pass the CR113 intersection.   Go 3/4 of a mile and look for Co. Line Rd. on the left.  Turn Left.   Go 3.5 miles and find Bosscher Rd and turn Right.  After one mile, at a left hand bend in the road, it becomes Fahrney Rd and about 3/4 of a mile past that bend is the river.  The landing is on the left before you get to the bridge.

*****************************************************************************
Norm's Directions  from Traverse City
My directions from Traverse City would be to go to Kingsley and go east on CR113.
Go until it dead ends and turn right (south).  Go 3/4 of a mile and look for Co. Line Rd. on the left.  Turn Left.   Go 3.5 miles and find Bosscher Rd and turn Right.  After one mile, at a left hand bend in the road, it becomes Fahrney Rd and about 3/4 of a mile past that bend is the river.  The landing is on the left before you get to the bridge.

With
 
The Walton Junction Sportsman's Club
 
We'll work with the folks from the Walton Junction Sportsman's Club,
which is just north of the river off US131.
 
We will try to cleanup 1 or 2 six mile sections of the Manistee similar
to the way we work it on the Upper Manistee.
 
We'll start at the club and carpool to the putin(s) which is/are just a few miles away. 
 
Afterwards, the club members will give us a nice picnic at the club location.
 
Let's make this new project a big success.
