September 7 - S Br AuSable Cleanup with the Anglers

S Br Cleanup with the Anglers

September 7, 2019

This is the 7th year we have helped the Anglers of the AuSable do
this combined cleanup of the three branches of the river.

They asked us to concentrate on the Castle to Chapel section of the
South Branch which was fine with us.

We had a key to the Castle gate from the DNR, so it was an easy
in and out to  unload our boats and Tom at Paddle Brave
provided a free shuttle for us from Smith Bridge.

We found some interesting items.

It was cool and no wind early on but a NW wind came up near the
end that bothered us a bit.

The picnic and recycle efforts were great and we got some good photos.

All photos are here:
