Dock at Alton Bay Boat Access to Close Temporarily 129oag

ALTON — The fishing dock at the new Downing's Landing boat access site in Alton Bay will be closed for about three days starting next Monday while structural engineers assess the dock's condition and determine the need for repairs, the state Fish and Game Department announced Monday.
Fish and Game purchased the former private marina at the southern tip of Alton Bay last November, creating the first public boat access facility on Lake Winnipesaukee. In addition to the fishing dock, the facility includes a boat launch, parking area and opportunities for shore-bank fishing.
New Hampshire's Public Boat Access Program is funded through boat registration fees and federal Wildlife and Sport Fish Restoration funds, a true user-pay, user-benefit program.
