In his first year as Fisheries Development
Project Manager, Bill
Haase has dealt with just about every boat ramp challenge imaginable.
He is pictured here at the end of the new dock the ND Game & Fish
Department constructed a mile south of Minnewaukan. Building a boat
ramp is not just digging out a slanted entrance into the water.
Creating fairly level parking and turn-around space, as well as an
adequate access road to accommodate heavy use by boaters is just as
important as the ramp itself. The gate at upper right is the entrance
to Minnewaukan’s inert landfill. (Photos by ND Game & Fish
Starting from scratch, the
fisheries development crew and Ebach Construction of Minnewaukan
created a new boat ramp on the west end of
this spring half a mile
south of Minnewaukan.
