Or there needs to be a conversation at the provincial level about the public crossing private lands to fish, damaging and destroying property in the process. This is a two sided coin, trust me, I am both a fisher as well as property owner, the tales I can tell. I doubt in this case that it a right away. Not many of those that I know of. Just some folks thinking cause they accessed an area all their lives that they have the right. Not true unless written in a deed. Your right to access waterways is on foot, through non cultivated, non agricultural land, it is as simple as that, written in law.Is the launch site privately owned, or is it an old right-of- way to the lake? If the former, you're probably out of luck with a boat & trailer, but you could still launch a hand carried canoe or kayak as you are crossing, on foot, uncultivated land in order to fish, with rod and line in a public watercourse. If it is an old public right of way, the folks there have no business denying anyone access. There probably needs to be a conversation at the provincial level regarding the public having access to our public waters.
Having said that, it is a pretty lake to fish and is supposed to hold some real pigs. I spent 4 days at the lodge 3 or 4 years ago but unfortunately the fish gods did not favour me. I only caught dinks.
Treat peoples property with respect, gates might not go up. My property here is used for everything, including a dump by the slob Striper Fishers.
