Becker Fishing Peer question

I stopped by Becker 8/8 in the morning and saw that the Fishing Pier was blocked , with a sign, "Closed to Public"

Why is that? FYI, to add to the confusion, this weeks AZ Game and Fish, Fishing Report for Becker did not mention anything about it, and there is a picture next to the report of people fishing from the Fishing Pier @ Becker

Anyway just trying to understand the situation.

Thanks

Charlie

"To add to the confusion"

Do you mean that while you were at Becker none of your Fishing peers were allowed on the Fishing Pier, or do you mean that while you were peering at the Fishing Pier that only sub par fishermen, that were not your fishing peer, were on the pier fishing??? Or, do you think that since it said "Closed to Public" the dang pier was closed to all fishermen, not just your peers??

GAME and FISH we need answers NOW!!!

Becker Vandalism

A little over a year ago vandals had gotten the pier swaying back and forth to the point that there was damage to the structure and it was closed for a while before they were able to repair the damage. Earlier this summer, the same thing has occurred except that it hasn't been repaired yet.

The observation deck on the nature trail was totally destroyed a year or two back also. It has since been rebuilt.

There just happen to be scum bags who think it is fun to destroy public facilities, and the taxpayers are the ones who have to pay. Meanwhile the facilities are no longer usable by the public.
