I do tend to have a bad mouth, but as for the boat ramp...who knows...It is apparently suppose to go in across the road from me, but I haven't seen a sign of anyone doing anything... I did hear a September date, but haven't seen any action.

Honestly, I have been blown away by the traffic on the Caney Fork, especially this weekend... I've been paddling that river heavily for about 8 years, and it has gradually escalated to all this... I always thought the Caney Fork had everything I needed but women, even that is looking promising lately...

Out of curiosity, has anyone ever seen a game warden downstream from betty's?

Downstream from Betty's???

Yeah. A lot of them. Most of them were in my boat.

Actually, I know that scn (TWRA enforcement) is inquiring into that very problem.

Look, caneysurf, I still think you're argument needs some fine tuning especially since you make money off the river and you are obviously not a fisherman, but you caught me right after a Saturday on the Caney where I felt like all day, I was zooming over speed bumps.

I don't claim to own anything. But I am saddened that I didn't enjoy the outing and can't return on a weekend. The canoers were too much, too disrespectful of their surroundings, and way too disrespectful of the resource (of course, not all of them - bad seeds in all the groups). It's nobody's fault and there's nothing I can think of to do, but I'm in mourning right now.

I understand that all canoes will soon have to pay to be registered. Overall I think that sux, but it will make me feel a little better if the registration money goes toward the resource just like the fishermen pay to maintain ramps, etc.

I understand both sides of the argument. I am also a whitewater paddler and read the opposing side on BoaterTalk.com a forum with lots of heated opinions from the boater perspective.

I can also the possible need for canoe/kayak registration. Motorized boats are often annoying, should they be banned?

I really don't have a resolution or explanation. Except I will not go on the river on weekends in summer. I love canoeing, too, so that's not my point. The hordes will keep coming, and the fishermen will have to live with it or go elsewhere. I find that it is too stressful for me to cope with it, so I'll be one of the ones pushed off the river by traffic.
