Letter: Gill boat ramp should open sooner

Published: 5/12/2016 5:20:20 PM

I am a avid fisherman and have lived in the area for a long time. The boat ramp at Barton Cove in Gill does not open until sometime in May, usually Memorial Day weekend. The weather has been beautiful most of April and I have fished the river in Northfield, Hindsdale and Northhampton. I have contacted several people as to why they do not open the boat launch sooner and have received no real answers. The Cove could be providing a lot more recreation then it has been if the gate keeper would just take a look at the river, or give the key to someone who would.
