New Enterprise Posting
New Enterprise Limestone Quarry posted their land recently from Limestone Road to the Pemberton Bridge. Apparently this is a new policy for all NE lands throughout the state and is not specific to the area surrounding the Little J and, to our knowledge, was not precipitated by events at the Pemberton location. We have contacted the NES&L and we are meeting with their management next Tuesday (Dec 5th) to discuss options to increase angler access. LJRA will do everything possible to reverse this loss of access on the river. A priority of the LJRA is to increase angler access and improve landowner relations. In the meantime, it is important to respect NE’s wishes that no one trespasses on the land. The LJRA has had a good relationship with NE, due in part to our cleaning up their land along the J for 12 years during the annual riverbank clean up. Check the website for updates.
There will be no meeting in December. The next event is the LJRA annual banquet, which is scheduled for Jan 19th. The event will be held at the Edgewater Inn in Alexandria. Check back in a few weeks for an update.
The LJRA will meet on Thursday November 9th, at 7:00PM at the Edgewater Inn.
