Washington is the only state to have entirely closed its fishing season. Jay Inslee stands alone in his unscientific fear based closure. The hardest hit states like New York are encouraging people to get outdoors and fish. I knew Oregon was open but was surprised today talking to a co-worker in California to hear he had fishing plans for the weekend so I started looking on the internet and found we are the only state to close all fishing.

On March 24, 2020, Seggos reminded New Yorkers that trout and salmon fishing season opens on Wednesday, April 1. New York’s coldwater lakes and streams offer springtime trout anglers the opportunity to pursue trout in a wide array of settings across the state. Commissioner Seggos said, “Fishing is good for the mind and body. Governor Andrew M. Cuomo continues to invest in ensuring New York’s renowned fisheries remain healthy and productive.

    Oregon is open, but all state boat launches are closed by order of Governor Kate Brown.... So essentially closed to most.... If your boat is moored, if you find a private launch or you fish from the bank, otherwise it’s closed...

    They closed all state parks as well in Oregon, couple of guys went over the fence across the public access to the beach for surfing... Locals ratted them out and they both got citations for trespassing.... Bog news on the Lincoln City Facebook page....

    SOME states have even waived the requirement to have a fishing license. Imagine that. Encouraging people to engage in a wholesome past time. Lots of dads out of work, it would be a great time to pass the sport to the next generation. Lowland lakes should be opening THIS Saturday, but they're not. SMH Guess we should all go play video games.

    This is from a thread on another forum.

    Straight from the horse's mouth (the marine enforcement officer for Coos) who was sitting next to an OSP officer: boat ramps are open, come on over and have fun! It's just a rumor that OSP is targeting people coming to the coast. They were laughing about it

    Coos is a little more rogue.... Depoe Bay and many others have concrete barriers across them. You couldn’t launch if you wanted to.

    Saw a Facebook post tonight that the South Coast charter boats are going to open back up. They said they worked with ODFW and they can social distance while fishing... Probably depends on the community... I’m also in the Depoe Bay community Facebook page and those people are nuts! They don’t want any valley people bringing them the Rona!

    Communities will start ignoring the Governor real soon!

    I think Inslee actually resents sport fisherman. This makes no sense. In challenging times and with known shortages of meat resources how can't fishing be allowed.

    The safest form of natural social distancing and ability to feed your family.

    Is it Inslee that resents sport fishing? Or do the treaty tribes, whom don't want sport fishing of any kind, own his ass?

    Disclaimer: Inslee is an idiot. I am not defending him in any way.

    Its safe to say that crazy Jay is bought and paid for by the tribes, extreme conservation groups, and agenda driven people like Bill Gates. Follow the $$$$.

    If the concern is the Risk to fish checkers, then we volunteer to do our own oversight and enforcement. If any sport fisherman is found breaking the rules, he will need to go to sport fisherman court run by sport fisherman.

    This is acceptable for other user groups to police themselves, why not us?
