From a Southwick Associates press release:
_Twenty-three percent of anglers report that one of their fishing spots has been closed to angling in the past three years, according to a January 2009 survey by Southwick Associates.
The access problem is most acute for freshwater anglers. . . .
In response to the loss of access . . . . about 37% reported fishing less frequently as a result.
What about you? Have you lost access, and are you fishing less because of it?
