Wheelchair accessible fishing spots

I am a Boy Scout with Troop 325 in Northumberland. One of my requirements is to write to the editor of a newspaper about an issue I’m concerned about.

My uncle is in a wheelchair and loves to fish and not many places are handicapped accessible. I also know a few other handicapped people through the self advocates of Northumberland County.

They also love to fish and they can’t do so easily because there are not a lot of handicapped accessible fishing spots.

I love to see my uncle fish, but I have to go to Troxelville to watch him fish, and I would like to have to only have to go one mile to fish. This is why I want to have wheelchair accessible fishing spots locally.

Skyler Spickler,
