Anglers have restrictions on the way they get their boats onto Lake Nipissing.

In a news release this morning, the City said effective immediately, the boat launches at Champlain Park and Sunset Park are closed for public safety reasons.

However, the launch at the waterfront is not mentioned and remains open and there is a free boat launch at the mouth of Chippewa Creek.

The City joins West Nipissing in closing boat launches for at least the long weekend.

If you have any questions or concerns, contact Public Works at  705-474-4340.
