Eena Lake Dock to be Replaced
Prince George, B.C. – A popular fishing spot is getting its dock back.
The Eena Lake dock, located just north of town, was removed last fall “in order to properly address liability, permitting and consultation,” said B.C.’s Ministry of Forestry, Lands and Natural Resource Operations in a statement to 250News.
Following their review, the government says these issues “have been reviewed” and note the dock “should be back in place by the end of July.”
Spruce City Wildlife Association president Steve Hamilton says he’s pleased noting he was disappointed when he initially learned it had been removed.
“This dock was put in place by Freshwater Fisheries using our license dollars to encourage more people to get out to enjoy the resources in their own backyard.”
He says he wrote a letter to the ministry expressing his disappointment about the dock’s removal but notes he was never given an explanation.
Hamilton does however want to impart the following message to users of the dock and homeowners in the area.
“We encourage people out there to report any violations and any stakeholders who live on the lake to please get a hold of us at the Spruce City Wildlife Association and we’d be happy to meet with you and address your concerns and see if we can reach a solution.”
