hey...Shore, on that note. I talked to the guy who owns the float plane at Rock island. We should go up with him sometime. He's out nearly every evening I fish up the Collins arm. Cool guy. He always makes it a point to take off 40 feet fro the boat. It's sick.

>>What you are proposing is that that river, that public waterway, be reserved only for fishing? No canoe rental. Then how in he11 do you figure you have a right to fish it?

I have a canoe myself and have used it on the Caney... but I know to be quiet and stay away from the fishermen, even the rubber-pants guys, as much as I possibly can.

have also fished on the Pine River in Michigan, where local laws mean the guides with drift boats essentially own the river at specified times of the day. you can be standing on the bank minding your own business, much smaller river than the Caney, faster current, and a lot more foliage, and boats will come out of nowhere, crashing down on you at full current speed with a guide hauling on the oars and a sport standing up front dunking flies; most of them I've encountered have real aggressive attitudes and won't even respond if you greet them as they go by.

Maybe I should have hidden the live crickets.

My fishing and trout licenses pay for the trout stocking. The canoers don't pay squat to recreationally canoe.

I like canoeing too and I don't think there's an answer, but yes, sue me, I wish the canoers would go away. I wish they would canoe somewhere where they can bang around and yell all day without disturbing fishermen.

But Gill, you can't argue with the complaint about the fat women in pink shorts. It's time I took you wife fishing again.



Fill the dam ditch in and let's get on with life.

If you and I could set up a canoe rental business on the Stones below Priest, we could make a stinkin' fortune. You could take out by Kohl's but the put-in at the dam would be a bit tough.

Bowriter,
Same thing that needs "fixin" on the Clinch. Enforcement! Last time I was on the Caney just below the dam there was about 12 shall we say.....questionable green card carrying folks keeping everything they drug out of the water. No. I did not call TWRA because I did not have a signal down there.

My Dad, yes my Dad got pinched in PA when we were on a family vacation once for trying to use his net to catch trout holding on a run by an UNDERCOVER F&W agent. This was back in the 60's and I was a mere worm dunkin' peep squeek. Made a huge impression on me at the time. Make a few rules, but enforce the rules. Too many people think a trout stamp is a food stamp(outside the legal limit of course) and the laws don't apply to them, especially if " thays a biting real good"!
