    You just dont get it.(respectfully)
    Maybe not, please explain.

    The next time your going to be up there let me know so we could of course fish,and than if he is home we could stop by and talk to him?
    And ask him what, "Excuse me sir, would you mind changing your mind about River Road?" Thanks, but no thanks.

    I think once you meet him and he explains the situation in FULL,you might just feel differently.
    It sounds like you've already spoken to him. What did he say?

    Dennis you obviously do not know all the deatails to this situation.
    I think I know what I need to know, but it sounds like you've already got the answer to this one, please explain.
    Greed?

    I dont get it?

    He is not benefiting in any way if the road is closed.
    Then why is he trying to close the road if he doesn't benefit by it? Does he think it will keep the deer and bears and the rest of the wildlife off of his property?
    This guy knows everyone up there and can fish anywhere he wants to.
    Then why deprive all fishermen who come up for a day or a weekend to fish Stockport? Ohhhh... I get it, he actually is helping the economy... (You want to fish stockport, you'll have to float it). Not everyone can afford a $300.00 float though. Luckily for me, my pal has a Hyde Low-ryder! (Thanks Dennis!)

    Since I've been fishing the stockport area, I don't believe I've seen much trash if any on River road, so I don't believe it's a trash problem. Placing trash cans along the road is also not the answer because that means people going in will think it's ok to bring in food. This will cause overflowing trash cans. It's better to leave them out and let the fishermen bring their trash back to their cars and dispose of it on their own. Shame on the people who bring trash in and leave it behind.

    Welp... you know how the saying goes, "He who dies with the most toys wins."

    Whether the owner is right or wrong he obviously feels that since its his property, why give priviledges and not get somthing in return. How about offering him an annual or semi annual stockport clean up day or property enhancement day by the people who use it in return for the priviledge of enjoying his property. I'm not saying he is right or wrong ,just deal with the mind set to our best advantage. If he feels that he is a winner then we are all winners.

    How long has the Stockport access been there? Did he explore the situation enough before buying it? My understanding is there is an easement in the deed so he has no control over that piece that runs through his property. His attorney must have made that clear. To me plain and simple investigate what you are buying. I have seen a lot of people buy their "little slice of heaven" and then want to change tings that existed fir years: no more development, no more access and on and on. I personally have no symphathy for him and he may be a great guy but understand what you bought. Again, does anyone know how longStockport access has been there? Andre

    Dennis
    I am sorry maybe I did not explain myself properly in my previous posts.I have spoken to him and know him.

    I simply meant that I would introduce you to him and let him explain IT to you in his words.

    There are certain details that I feel should not come from me here on line.

    I hope you could understand that.

    ONE MORE TIME I AM NOT FOR THE ACCESS BEING CLOSED

    I am simply trying to give both sides of the situation.

    Anyone going to be up there tonight?

    Andre there is an easment in the deed.Hhe also knew this when he bought it.

    Re: Should River access be Closed via River Road in Stockport?

    We had an extensive thread on this a few years back. If he can shut the road down (legally) then who are we to protest? You can still access the Pennsylvania side at Stockport "near" his property without walking on his land.
    Whenever I go there I always walk the length of River Road right to the river. I don't cut across his property because I don't think it's the right thing to do. If River Road was legally abolished then I could still fish Stockport legally without going on River Road. This continuing discussion seems more principled than practical. This is just my opinion.

    Not for nothing but this thread started back in 2003! This was with regard to the River Road access on the Upper Delaware River on the PA side of the river somewhere between lake lenore and buck.

    I thought this was a revisit. Or did something weird happen showing this as a new post.

    There is a poll that is attached to this thread. The polls come up on the front page randomly. If someone votes on the poll it bumps it back to the top. It's a good thing because it might get some interest back into something that may have faded out years ago.

    Re: Should River access be Closed via River Road in Stockport?

    I've been fishing there since around 1971, long before the two houses were built. Years back we used to drive into the grove of trees to park. To the best of my knowledge it's a township road and is even marked by a street sign. If my memory serves me right the street sign has disappeared and would reappear in past years.

    Re: Should River access be Closed via River Road in Stockport?

    I think last year the sign was up. If it is a township road or easement, then the owner should respect that and live with it. If it is his property, then he can do as he pleases. But I cant stand when someone knows the property does not belong to them and they post it or try and lie to others and tell them they own it.

    To look good is to fish good
