DNR Ramps and Piers Ready for Use
The DNR has been busy placing fishing piers and rolling out docks and fixing ramps at the public accesses.
Brainerd Area DNR Parks and Trails Supervisor Wade Miller says the lack of winter snow cover resulted in more damage than usual on area boat ramps. He says the ice pushed the ramps toward shore.
Miller the opposite was true on Mille Lacs, where the boat ramps escaped damage. He says the mild winter resulted in less ice and the less ramp damage.
