Friday, May 1, 2020

Next Tuesday is going to be a busy day for anglers across the state. It’s what we’ve all been waiting for. The opening of recreational fishing, with a few exceptions. Everyone anticipates a bit of chaos. Let’s try to do our best to be responsible and keep things orderly. I can’t stress enough that it is up to us to keep our waters open to fishing. Demonstrate that you are complying with the rules. Keep our launch areas and shorelines free of garbage. If we anglers show that we are willing to follow the rules we can keep on fishing. We need to self-police and remind fellow anglers to use the best conduct and behavior. It is important that you call ahead and make sure that the launch you plan to use is open. Some cities and counties are playing catch up, and the federal parks are in many cases not ready to receive anglers. I also learned that the Charterboat Association and the Guides Association are going to submit a plan to the governor very soon that would allow them to get back to business. I am as eager as anyone to get back out on the water and plan to fish as many days as possible. I hope to see you out there, too.
