    I did witness a good sized kang surface while fishing skams yesterday. Local bait shop owner is worried about the popular spots getting shut down again once the crowds start heading that way.

    Muskegon planters were labor day channel runners ...quite predictable as they were all born on the same day. Naturals are all different birthdays

    I will be checking a couple spots this weekend. That flip may have pushed a couple crank biters in.

    Don't think people will go for any "shut down" Ron. Good luck buddy!

    Close them down? you mean public launches? Boaters aren't the ones not practicing social distancing, 2 guys in a boat outdoors should be plenty far enough apart.
    The Guides would take a huge hit if unable to launch, have to refund money etc, that can get ugly.

    There were no qualms about doing it in March, i don’t think there’s any reason she won’t do it again in September. Salmon season is worse than steelhead with people at the Dam. They have to shut down the entire access to stop people from bank fishing so boaters get the shaft too at state owned facilities in those regions.

    lets hope for the best, over the years you get to know all the regulars on the river and many of the guides customers you get to know and say 'howdy' to. That is one of the things we enjoy about the river, the banter among fishermen. An empty river isn't quite the same, fish or no.
