Custer Weir Now Open

November 10, 2014

Custer Weir, just south of US 10, once greeted visitors with no trespassing signs, tall fences and rusting equipment. It was a foreboding and potentially dangerous site. Now, as a result of two very special grants, CRA and partners removed the declining buildings and defunct lamprey barrier to create a new, inviting, all access site to the Pere Marquette River.

The new and improved site is the first and only universally designed fishing platforms and related amenities, including a bathroom facility, docking cleats, educational signage, river access steps, additional parking and a new boardwalk to safely connect the fishing platforms to the boat launch, on the Pere Marquette. 

Special thanks to the Great Lakes Fishery Commission and Great Lakes Fishery Trust for leading the project funding. Also, big thanks to Custer Township, Mason-Lake Conservation District, Michigan DEQ, Michigan DNR, Natural Resources Conservation Service, OxyChem, Pere Marquette Watershed Council, Spicer Group, U.S. Forest Service, Swidorski Brothers Excavating and the Village of Custer for their efforts.

Join us Thursday, September 10 to celebrate!
