I'm not sure I agree

Maybe that's true in the southeastern part of the state, where game fishing isn't as popular. I know that TU does plenty of work on trout streams in the northern LP and UP. And fishing pays the bills up north.
Many cleanups and stewardship programs are coordinated by watershed groups who aren't necessarily interest-specific toward paddling or canoeing.
I would agree, however, that the State doesn't give paddlers much consideration compared to the fishing community. But fishing is a huge tourism draw for the state.
