Tresspass/property damage on the D at the Riffle Ranch
Sorry to have to bring this up but many of you are around the Deschutes in this area and can help with your eyes and ears.I am not inferring it was anyone on this board, I just know that you guys see and hear things out there and may be able to help out.I would appreciate it.
So, some lowlife cut up about 60 yards of fence on the North fence line at the Riffle Ranch above the boat ramp at Warm Springs. Not really sure when it happened but I am not happy. Went down to check it today and the entire fence and all three strands along the waters edge were cut.They even cut the fence that went up the hill 40 feet from the water.They cut every strand on every post......I am totally amazed someone went that far. Besides the tresspass issue this person went way beyond and decided to really damage some property.Just plain mean if you ask me.
Now those of you who know and have fished there know that you can walk in the water along this entire stretch and still fish.The fence is to keep people off the property. The fence is along the water but above the high water mark. The water does not raise dramatically in this area even in winter. It may raise a foot or so but that's about it. The fence is on land....it never gets wet.....ever.
To whoever did it,you are on my bad list. I have a good idea who it was and I will deal with that person or should I say the Sheriff will. It is someone who fishes there a lot obviously and it must have bothered them enough to want to vandalize.
The fence will be fixed and it will be beefed up considerably. If it gets cut again, I will fix it again. I will catch you eventually and it won't be pretty for you. You will be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.
There is a reward out for the apprehension of this dirt bag so keep your eyes open....I know I will.
Thanks for any and all help on this.
Tight line takes!
