Anglers of the AuSable-Annual River Clean Up

   The 18th annual Anglers of The AuSable River Clean Up will be held Saturday, Sept. 8, beginning at 9:45a.m.  at Gates AuSable Lodge.
   A brief meeting will be held poor to teams heading for parts of the river, called beats, they've agreed to clean.
   The day promises to be a good time. You'll meet other like-minded folks, enjoy the George Alexander Memorial Lunch, and contribute to a great cause.
   Pre-registration is required. Contact Josh Greenberg, (989)348-8462 or email The AuSable's mainstream, south branch and north branch will be concentrated on. Family sections-Burton's to Louie's, Thendara to Guides Rest, Icebox to Baldwins, Truettner's to Oxbow Club, and Island Road to Flashlight Bend-are some of the beats. A complete list is available from Greenberg.
   I participated a few years back with river guide Sam Sure. We had fun at the same time picking up assorted debris left over from the sinner's seasons. A couple of tires tossed in the middle of the river presented a challenge.
   After considerable time and nearly tipping our boat over, we finally fished them out. We considered it   a successful day out. Besides, we did some fishing once the work was done.
