Heard from a very reliable source today that the boat ramp will be opening tonight. This is consistent with San Luis Obispo county's most recent COVID-19 update. Per the update: "Recreational fishing, via personal boat and/or rented boats and private charters are allowed. All physical distancing must be adhered to which may result in fewer people being in a boat or on a charter than maximum capacity would otherwise allow. Fishing suppliers may conduct sales through curbside pickup or deliver/shipping". Not sure about the launch at Port Avila but I am sure they will not be far behind.

Dang. Heard some chatter that MB officials are concerned that if MB is the only launch around there will be a huge influx of people from out of town....especially when salmon opens. What they don't realize is that it is rare that MB has a hot bite for salmon and with some bay area launches open those fishermen set on salmon will go there instead.

Yeah, still checking ID's, couple valley guys drove 2/3 hours to get turned away.
Still was a shit show, parking lot full and a dumped parker on the ramp. Poor guy.
Then to top it off, fishing sucked with almost no salmon caught and rockfish really slow. South swell kinda pumping and huge tides making things worse. Wish it was open up north. Couple whales around, but seems to be no bait.

Face masks required EXCEPT for F n G, who come right up to everyone and board and check licenses, fish, gear etc. WTF? So now you have a state employed vector contacting face to face and touching everyones' stuff who is there.
I'm all for the distancing, and would like the state employees to follow suite.

Maybe everyone already knows this but this came from a local newspaper. Sounds like it’s not locals only anymore.
“After a near month-long closure followed by a restricted, locals-only reopening, Morro Bay Harbor Department opened its ramp to all members of the general public and discontinued its restriction on out-of-towners on May 1, just in time for the first day of salmon season”

Yeah it’s open to all but it’s sad what the out of towners have done to our community the last few weekends. All the beaches have been covered in trash the Embarcadero, coycus, Pismo, and Avila. If you come here pleas clean up after your self.

Yeah its bullshit, I took a kruz through downtown pismo today and the tourists are everywhere... we might as well open up and take all there money to pay for there mess!
