Providing access to public
waters is a primary objective of the DNR. More than 200 public
access sites on streams, rivers, and lakes are now available to
anglers. The DNR also partners with other agencies and local governments
to construct boat access facilities and shoreline fishing trails.
Access for physically challenged anglers is an important component
of the access development program. The Physically Challenged Handicapped
Advisory Board provides useful information to the DNR about locating
and designing accessible sites.
