SHUTDOWN – PARKER RIVER WILDLIFE REFUGE

SHUTDOWN – PARKER RIVER WILDLIFE REFUGE

YES………………..IT IS SHUT UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

That means walk on, drive on, night fishing, and anything else you can think of.

PRWR2

And, since you have to go through their gate to Sandy Point and said gate is closed……………Sandy Point is also closed.

Sorry folks!!! As soon as we know any differently we will be sure to pass the news on.

Here is an article that appear in the local paper today:

    I think I’ll take a walk on to PRWR; there’s no door to lock, after all. As a citizen whose tax dollars fund those who are perfectly content to ride the welfare train (which I am NOT suggesting is everyone on welfare, but it definitely is plenty of ’em), I’ll be damned before I accept that it’s “closed.” Hell, is PI Sound closed, too??!!

    I was thinking the the same thing. Also if there is no one to open the gate there won’t be anyone to tell me to leave.

    How many times, on an October day, have you driven up to the gates, had no one there at all, fished all day and saw NO Fed employee?
    <<<<<many times for me

      I saw a black Toyota Tundra driving on the beach yesterday at over 50 mph. The driver swerved around me as I stupidly attempted to get in his way. He could easily have hit anyone as he raced off of the beach at Fordham Way on the Newbury Town beach. The Tundra had a yellow kayak on the rack over the cab, and sitting on the tailgate. He had commercial plates, and a nice growl to the engine with aggressive off road tires. Anyone know this guy? Newbury, State, and Federal officers are looking for him.

      It just seems churlish to be to shut the gates because a bunch of postering idiots in Washington are being irresponsible. I would like it if the PRWR folks were a bit more human-friendly.

    Just wanted to thank the fishermen that have respected the closure. I have not found any fishermen wandering down onto the Refuge. I have been spending a lot of time patrolling the road, and beach, and none of the trespassers are fisherman. Thanks to surfland for allowing me to air up my truck at your compressor.

    Is there a good link about driving on the beach in the area. When it opens that is.
