Over local anglers’ objections, Sleeping Bear Dunes NL halts river dredging

TRAVERSE CITY, MI — Arguing for Platte River dredging seems like an annual exercise for Ed McIntosh.

McIntosh, Benzie Fishery Coalition president, continually fought plans that would stop dredging in the river over the years, claiming not doing so puts anglers and boaters at risk. His latest perceived victory came last year when Michigan Department of Natural Resources officials agreed to dredge under a National Park Services permit for the first time in three years.
