Day use of the Allagash Wilderness Waterway is up to 8,885, an eight-fold increase over 1984, while winter day use was 6,237, compared to 2,900 a decade earlier. Veteran guide Gil Gilpatrick would like to see all motorized watercraft banned from the waterway, and reduced access points. The waterway is home to a healthy loon population, and provides habitat for lynx and nesting areas for some of the northernmost bald eagles. A draft ten-year plan for the waterway is not expected to be ready for public hearings until late this year or early 1997. Details.
