Monday, May 4, 2020
By Dave Graybill
Just like so many anglers across the state I am poised in the starting blocks to hit the water on Tuesday, May 5th. I really hope that people act responsibly, with respect to practicing social distancing and the best conduct at our boat ramps and shorelines. If we can prove that we can do this the right way, we will be able to continue to keep on fishing. One of the things that will get particular attention will be people restricting their travel to day trips. There is no strict definition to what distance that implies, and I know that for many driving long distances to reach their favorite lake or river is acceptable. However, I know that people who spend multiple days in their camper, tent or trailer well outside their area of residence will be identified. What action will be taken I am not sure, but I certainly would discourage this activity. State Parks will open for the most part, for day use only, except those on the on the ocean beaches and along the Columbia River Gorge. I would encourage everyone to visit the State Parks web site and learn what facilities will be open on May 5th.
