Ludington -- With its cool clear water and world class fishing, the Pere Marquette Wild and Scenic River draws thousands to its waters yearly. It has been the backdrop to the lives of many residents of Lake and Mason County as well.
While experiences made on the river are timeless, the river itself is continually changing. Wind and flood events continually change the river by adding unforeseen obstacles and hazards. These obstacles and hazards have led to many emergency situations for river users.
