    Re: CA state fishing closure could be next

    Its been pretty clear over the past ten years that California (the state government and the majority of liberal minions) do not consider fishing and hunting to be anything more than a financially lucrative but undesirable past time. If they could deal with the economic impact, the State would probably love to close all hunting and fishing altogether, and I am sure that is the eventual goal of many in power. So, although they pay lip service to the two sports, no one should expect much support from the Governor or the Legislature beyond what influence some of the pro-outdoor legislators may be able to provide.

    I can remember the day when every newspaper ran and outdoor sports page with fishing and hunting info and opening season articles. Sadly, other than some small town exceptions, that is a thing of the past. The public has been trained to see Whole Foods as the best source of fish as opposed to the barbarians who put a hook into creatures and tortures them.

    Yea, I saw the WA state article as well. Please allow us to continue fishing as long as we practice distancing. If I want to take my boat out of Morro Bay, like say next weekend, with my wife, what's the issue? I already know I can't keep my distance from her.

    i'm not happy about it at al but I guess I get it. gonna be like this for 4-6 more weeks. I think we can all survive with no fishing for a few weeks if it means slowing the spread and saving lives.
    Sorry, don’t agree. We already have millions of people daily going to work, going to grocery stores, gas stations, hardware stores, medical facilities, take out food and on and on. People fishing is microscopic compared to all the people out and about, many not practicing social distancing. If a lake requires LEO patrols and The jurisdictions don’t have sufficient resources then shut that lake down. But there are plenty of lakes without any patrols (mostly the smaller ones) let people fish there, in a boat or not. The delta and bay will have CG and sheriff patrols whether people are fishing there or not. Let people fish the delta and bays. I think allowing recreational outlets like fishing in these dark times are for the greater good and will do more positive than not.

    I understand temporarily closing places where you have to pay a person at a kiosk to get into as those could become vectors for the virus. But public launches or launches where there is the iron ranger shouldn’t be any problem. When I launch a boat no one is ever within 50’ of each other. Fishing is good for the mind and the soul.

    They are not (yet) closing a bay, they are closing marinas, launch ramp facilities and areas where people gather.
