Fishing Dock at Alton Bay Boat Access Site Temporarily Closed

Boating_access_logoAlton NH - Lake Winnipesaukee  - The New Hampshire Fish and Game  Department announced today that the fishing dock at the Department's new  Downing's Landing boat access site in Alton, N.H., will be temporarily closed  for about three days, from April 15-17, 2013, while structural engineers assess  the condition of the dock and determine future repair needs.

Fish and Game purchased the former private marina at the  southern tip of Alton Bay in November of 2012, creating the first public boat  access facility on Lake Winnipesaukee. In addition to the fishing dock, the  facility includes a boat launch, parking area and opportunities for shorebank  fishing.

New Hampshire's Public Boat Access Program is funded  through boat registration fees and federal Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration  funds, a true user-pay, user-benefit program. Fish and Game's Facilities and  Lands Division acquires land for public water access sites, refurbishes  existing sites and builds new public boat access areas. Fish and Game maintains  more than 140 public boat access sites throughout New Hampshire
