I agree with spinningreelsbest.

Default It's going to happen

The majority of the objections to the plan was from fly fishermen. These slimy dirt bags are waiting for the season to end before they start. Trust me, this is your low life " screw the public" state government at work. I work for them. I know exactly how it works. Fish and game signed off. So did DES and DOT. What a bunch jerks. I wonder how the Sunnunu clan profits from this?
It wouldn't be good for fishermen to see the mess they are going to make in the construction in the water. It's going to be a mud hole for weeks. The leachate from the pressure treated deck will kill insects for decades. Poachers will have unfettered access to the pond for the foreseeable future. A typical government FUBAR.

Default Profile Update

Hi All,

I had sent in a comment on the plans before the April meeting. Today I got an email from DNCR regarding updated plans and meeting:

Profile Lake Accessible Fishing Platform Public Information Session

The Division of Parks and Recreation will be holding an informational session to present the plans for the Profile Lake accessible fishing platform and walkway on August 28, 2018, 6:00pm at the Franconia Notch State Park headquarters building.

The original plan presented at the April 7, 2017 meeting has been revised based upon public comment and the scope of the project lessened. Included in this plan are two bridge crossings at the north and south ends of the lake, and an accessible path from the Old Man Viewing Area to an accessible fishing platform on Profile Lake. Plans and permits are posted on the Profile Lake project webpage,

I have to say that while I am still not thrilled, it does seem like they have taken actions to address environmental impact issues as well as to scale down the plans. They throw a bone to us fisherman by incorporating an accessible fishing platform (in lieu of the proposed boardwalk across the whole eastern shoreline) - yes it provides easier access and may encourage poaching etc. however I think it is generally a good thing to afford a disabled fly fisherman (perhaps a veteran) an opportunity to access the resource.

Default Not great but better than before

I donít support this plan but itís a heck of a lot better than the BS that they proposed in the spring of 17í. Iím still not happy with the piers in the lake and the leachate from the lumber.
Iím all for handicap access. Iím glad that we all sent our comments in and conservation organizations stepped up to plate. It still may face a lawsuit and certainly would have in the prior plan.
The other thing is itís pretty close to the highway down in that corner and the traffic noise is very high. The fishing sucks down in that corner too. I find that very amusing. Your government at work building a fishing pier where thereís almost no fish and it so loud you need earplugs.
