Lefty Access to dams are closed due to the possibility of an explosive taking it out. Imagine the Quabin draining?
America will hang tough. We will return to theses great fisheries another day.

Chris Cool,
I'll send a photo diary as we progress through the project. What is the best way to bundle the pictures with the text just as attachments or is there a more efficient way to do it?
09-25-2001 07:06 PM
juro AWESOME! If you have a digital camera or a regular camera and send me the pics, I will make a project page for it. Let me know if you are interested in that.

I love the lines of dories and classic rowing craft.

Chris Juro,
The Rangley Guide Boat is like an oversized deep bodied canoe. They are generally about seventeen feet long and four feet wide. A rangley "Double Ender" as they are called, have two sets of oar locks so they can be rowed from either the front or the rear seat--they can be freighted down with a lot of gear--are extremely stable--and they really move across the water. They are a lapstrake boat so for their size they are very light weight. This boat was made in Waterville, Maine by the Kennebec Boat and Canoe, which went out of buisness, if my sources are correct, in '46. It is in excellent shape and should restore beautifully. I plan to go to the Maine state library, up the road a couple of miles from here, and do some research on it. The boat we have, actually it is Ian's, my dad gave it to him last winter shortly before he passed away. Dad had planned to have it restored for him but now we plan to do it ourselves. I have been reading up on it and it shouldn't be to daunting a project. I anticipate that by next spring it will be out trolling for LL salmon under the power of a new 10 hp/ 4 stroke. You may even see it at the cape next year looking new.

troutdude Bummer on the Wachusett and Quabbin being closed. I am on vacation this week and next and I was all set to go to Thomas basin to try out your jetty. I live in Hubbardston and my house is right next to a trout stream in the watershed. I guess they will have to keep an eye out for me catching fall brookies. I just read in the Worcester Telegram they are stocking the Swift river this week. Maybe they ought to stock some waters where fishing is allowed! Hey, Chris I checked out the guide boat when I was in Maine last weekend----sure will be beautiful when restored.

Is this due to potential terrorist activity with our water supply?
Yes, Woolybugger/Troutbum posted an article from todays Worcester Telegram on flyfishsaltwaters bulletin board discussing the closure. This closure hits ~ 70% of my favored waters.

juro Is this due to potential terrorist activity with our water supply? I read that two planes flew low over the water recently in violation of the no-fly zone.

Or is it due to other factors?

Stillwater - Access closed

This will have to wait for another season.

It is sad, but inevitable that access to both Quabbin and Wachusett reservoirs and their tributaries is closed for the indefinite future.

John Desjardins Hi Juro,

I know of two, possibly three points to access the Stillwater upstream of the singing bridge. In years past there have been problems with beaver dams blocking the upstream migration in the area around rt 190. The town of Sterling has an exemption from the trapping ban so this may not be as big of a problem anymore.

I'll try to get out there next weekend and see what the situation is. Of course, given that Quabbin access is currently closed, closure of the Wachusett may happen before the run .
