Fisherman at TSL

I found a man fishing in Third Sister Lake. He said that he had a State of Michigan fishing license. Okay. Good. But did he have a University of Michigan collecting license? No, he didn't. Well, I asked him to put back the fish he caught, and in went several bluegill.

If you want to fish, in Third Sister Lake, you cannot do so from Saginaw Forest. Walking upstream from Honey Creek -- through the farm fields, and into the forest -- and staying in the water the whole way is the only way that you can (legally) fish in the waters with only a Michigan Fishing License. Of course, that would require that the entire stretch be classified as "navigable"... which it isn't.
