Sportfishing business adjusting to higher waters

Sportfishing businesses in Door and Kewaunee Counties will find themselves again adjusting to rising water levels on Lake Michigan.  Last summer, Kewaunee's municipal boat launch was closed because of rising lake levels.  That trend is expected to continue for the foreseeable future.  Tom Kleiman, an owner at Accurate Marine in Kewaunee and an organizer of the K-D Salmon Tournament, believes lakeshore communities are better prepared for high water levels than last year.




Kleiman believes there is also a bright spot to the current situation based on his experiences with record high water levels on the Great Lakes in the mid-80s.




Kleiman reminds anglers and recreational boaters that lake levels are cyclical and right now Lake Michigan is on an upswing.
