on monday I was furtunate enough to have a jobsite to go to that is right on the bank next to the monitor merrimac bridge. where all the rocks were put on the bank. I think this is where people talk about walking throught woods where unexploded ordinaces lay, thats what I was there to investigate for work.any way I saw a large group of working birds on the other side of the bridge, wish I was able to fish, its hard to get work done with a school working right in front of your face.

Yep, thats the spot. Since you were able to get in there did you see any way to walk in or to park nearby and is it dangerous to walk through there? I checked it out once from the college area and it looked almost impossible to access, but I have seen people fish off those rocks in the summer when I have driven over the bridge.

ok I think im safe, cause nobody knows my real name, but for the record, I never said this: if you take a right just before the tcc sign, there is a gate that says hazardous ennvironmental conditions no tresspassing, its locked, but you can walk right around it(gate is to stop vehicle entry)then its paved all the way to the water, its probably 1/2 mile or less. its safe to travel, all the serious ordinaces have been removed, there is just remnants left in the soil, you may get busted If you leave your vehicle parked in front of the gate but otherwise you should be ok

Cool, thanks for the tip. Maybe I'll try it out in the spring. Also if you are wading under the bridge it is unlikely that anyone could see you from the road.

Being head of a military history museum, I requested to be on the advisory board but I think they were afraid I would come up with too much historical slant to plans for EOD. I did get the minutes from the meetings. I've always thought something could be done to develop some kind of access and fishing opportunity there. There are some grants available if a fishing organization wanted to work on such a project with the local community and Federal governments. Check out this link to my home fishing club's web site:
