Let's keep buying them licenses though. Welcome to the Pacific Northwest of Soviet Socialist Republics comrades, where your government decides for you...for the Motherland!

Why not leave rec fishing open and limit those aboard floating devices to no more than two? I guess some see "recreational fishing" as guide boats loaded with paying anglers, and I can see the logic in curtailing this kind of fishing under the circumstances. But a guy in a kayak? A retiree in a folding chair watching his bobber? A dad and his son trolling for kokes? I don't get this part of the ban.

Anybody over 75 year old should be allowed to fish. Call be selfish. I don't care.

You do know that it was going to close in a few days anyway?

I know we are stuck where we are for now, and someday life will return to normal. Will the return to normal actually be the same?

I have a not so good feeling about it.

Any business which can monitor/enforce the entry of their patrons/customers/clients are open. Pizza places, liquor stores/weed shops/..atleast in my area has 'these blue X'as you can stand there and it's quite a distance from other cust/client and maybe 2ppl inside at times in the store. No politics involved. Just common sense. There's no way to monitor boat ramps strictly and infact I'll take it back....yes it can be at boat ramps but than you can't 'babysit' meldrum bar or frenchmens or Goble..or no name plunking spots. 'You' can be responsible and doing your part but not everybody is like 'You'. There's just complete [email protected]@$ out there who lick stuff (go figure..unable to understand that one). I plunked like a week or so ago. I was way down away from everybody and I can see upriver ppl socialising over cigatette smoke in close proximity like normal days. That was last fishing from bank for me. Either they stop fishing or not. Cannot be... leave boat fishing open and closed for bank. Why willy is open...go figure

PS: SUCKS TO NOT BE ABLE TO GO OUT AND FISH...BUT..LIVE ANOTHER DAY AND CATCH ANOTHER FISH. NO FUN IN LAYING 6 FEET UNDERGROUND IN THAT WRETCHED BOX. UGLY TRUTH

As far as salmon goes.... should our minimum wage earning fish-checkers be compelled to risk their lives for our entertainment/exercise? Probably not.

Its not the people in the boat that's the problem its the lure to many in these times to get away and do something. It brings people in from other areas to small local communities and with it the possibly of the first case of Covid. Hell lets load 100 people on boat but they all need to go home without stopping anywhere for such as gas or food. Locally I see a lot signs on power poles with messages like tourist go home and other not so nice messages. I would be like saying the air in New Mexico in only days is the cure for Covid, I'm sure you would like that either.

A bit surprised to see a guide boat at the ramp this morning. However, his clients may be from the same household and therefore allowed to congregate in public. Checking em out through the binos, the clients are up front while the guide is at the stern so they're maintaining proper distance.
Nonetheless, it just looks bad, right?

I know all of you WA fishermen think of this as unfair vs. Oregon. However I will offer some perspective. We have to release fish hooked in the head or gill plate that you guys get to bonk. Also however, closing fishing???GMAFB

I agree 100%. This is a non-discriminatory disease. At the risk of great flogging and AUP violation. What if we changed the word "fishing" to "high capacity magazine" ?

Doesn't just look bad, this is the exact reason I see as the forced closures and stay at home orders. Either people self comply with health orders, or they are forced to.

This is the type of activity that will close sportfishing for everybody. This guy should be called out and any of the other guides doing the same.

I've cancelled and turned away trips. I could really use that money, but ultimately this problem is bigger than my need or desire to fish.

Let's squash this thing, keep our families and neighbors healthy, and be thankful and more patient with each other when we get the green light to go back to normal life.

Don't be like the selfish turds that flooded the coast last weekend. Let's lead by example. We're willing to give up the thing we love most for the greater good.

Maybe karma will reward you with the fish of a lifetime, at the right time.

This isn't a government conspiracy, it isn't sport versus commercial, it's literally life and death.
The most reasonable reply and it comes from someone who's livelihood is actually being affected. Sacrificing a couple of fishing trips is a small price to pay to ensure the long term well being of everyone.

Amp.

Please send that to the Oregon State Marine Board since you witnessed it and can verify the date.

https://www.oregon.gov/osmb/Pages/Guides-Charters.aspx

From that page:

We believe that EO20-12 effectively limits this type of operation in many circumstances. Here is a summary of our review, plus pertinent parts of the executive order. Note that this is not a legal interpretation and is based only on our review of EO20-12. Business owners will need to make their own decision on how to comply with Governor Brown's order. Here's a link to all COVID19-related executive orders.

Summary:

Paragraph 1A immediately prohibits non-essential social gatherings outside of a home if distances of six feet between individual cannot be maintained – difficult or impossible to implement in the operation of most of Oregon's six-pack guide boat operations and probably most charters.

Paragraph 10 states when telework and work-from-home options are not available, businesses must designate an employee or officer to establish, implement, and enforce social distancing policies. These policies must address how the business will maintain social distancing protocols for business-critical visitors. Be prepared to present your policy and policy enforcer to law enforcement upon request.

Paragraph 18 states that all public and private campgrounds are to be closed immediately, further restricting the ability for the public in general to launch boats on the water. Be aware that you are encouraging more people to use stressed facilities such as public restrooms, if they are even available.

Paragraph 22 specifically directs individuals to minimize travel except for essential travel. While “workplace" is considered within “essential travel," and guides and charter operators work from their boats, travel by your clients would not be considered essential.

Given this review, we believe that it would be difficult for most if not all guide or charter operations to operate with the public aboard under this executive order. Just as we do not distribute legal advice, we caution you against making legal decisions for or giving legal advice to your clients. During this time of "Stay Home, Save Lives," please be prudent and cautious. Keep yourself and your clients safe.


Sorry guides. Lets all get through this healthy
