This morning I discovered an access site for disabled fishermen (and women) along the Pequest River in Warren County, New Jersey. Adjacent to the reserved spaces in the angler’s parking lot, you’ll find a wide, gravel path that leads to a beautiful area along the river designated for wheelchair access. A low fence serves as a barrier between the path and the water. The vegetation has been cleared away to allow unhindered casting from a wheelchair. I had never encountered a site like this before, but have since learned that New Jersey has more than 50 locations with wheelchair accessible fishing. Glad to hear that heading to the water’s edge is being made available to everyone.
