Re: Rafters Vs. Fisherman
I happen to have some friends with private land on the Colorado, and roaring fork that I can fish...but there are rivers like the eagle....where finding a place to get to the water is tough, and what lil water you can get to is very overly fished. I have met some rafters that were disrespectful ( let his dogs jump out right where I was casting, then proceed to beach right next to me when there was 2 miles of shoreline ) but for the most part they are great guys, including their passengers. I'm not sure if I'm right but I think I remember my mom saying something like 20' above the water line was able to be walked if you were following the stream or river, this was in Calif. I might be wrong. anyway, as a respectful angler I think we should get some slack....at least more public access
if I'm not here...I'm on another line...with a fly on the end..
