We're about to get that here if Cooper issues a statewide stay at home order. He's under a lot of pressure by the medical community to do so.

Wow, do they really have the right do to this? That's unbelievable to me. So people can't take their boat out and mind their own business? I understand if people are standing side by side fishing on the bank or rafting up on boats but this is getting out of hand. I doubt there are sand bar parties happening in Washington state.

I guess stay a home would mean stay at home. Imagine that.

Easier to get forgiveness than to get permission. Officer, I had no idea that I was breaking the law by taking my boat out on the water to catch a meal for my family or to simply enjoy the day. Now what, are you going to cart my arse off to an already overflowing jail full of pot heads or place me under house arrest?

Could be as easy as a ticket and a fine. Got an extra $1000 in case?

Pleading ignorance gets you nowhere with the man...no jail just a ticket...and the wildlife guys hand those out without any hesitation.

I hope we don't get there, I am conflicted on the topic frankly....on the one hand if you live on the water or you trailer your boat from your house to the ramp without getting near anyone it doesn't seem like a problem. If on the other hand, if you (like me) would have to trailer your boat, Stop at least once to get gas, Stop to get bait, stop to get food, stop to get the inevitable quart of something I'm low on....then there are multiple "non-essential" human interactions necessary...again, if I had a full tank etc...I could argue the other side of that...
