September 16 - 6th Annual Upper Manistee River Cleanup

Published on 9/16/2017

6th Annual Upper Manistee River Cleanup

Ten of us headed out for the Manistee to have some fun on one of my favorite
fishing rivers.  We had some newcomers who did a great job of spotting trash for
the rest of us to get and also had a great time doing it.

We found a big dock that I want to attack later this year.

The river was pretty clean but we did find a lot of drowned beer cans that
are hard to get and we worked hard to get as many as we could.  We took
50+ pounds of trash out of the river.  Not bad!

A big THANK YOU to Terry's daughter Carly and our youngest river
cleaner, Zach.  They both handled themselves very well on the river.
