I think anyone can fly a kite , or maybe helium filled ballons, at the pond. I know the birds would not like it. Also anyone could send an inner tube out on the water with a line attached to bring it back. It's clear than anything strange makes the birds leave the water.

I used to carry a Daisy CO2 BB pistol and cap the ducks that would eat my bread while I surface fished for Carp, I didn't intend on killing anything, the bbs just bounce off, but it gives the birds the idea.

It is dangerous considering the bb's skip across the water, always know what is beyond your target.

LOL while all of these ideas probably work unfortunately they are all illegal. Harrassment of wildlife will get you a ticket everytime! I agree something needs to be done about the cormorants in some locations but ODFW isn't likely going to do anything about them at hatchery stocked ponds as they would rather have them there than other locations where native fish reside.

It's boat. I will be using it again. But it only lasts 15 min. and it can get caught in the brush. I would hate to not be able to retrieve it.

That is not quite true. ODFW bought me an RC boat and gave me a permit to us eit at JC Pond. They don't like the birds anymore than the fisherman. They didn't spend all the time (money) and effort just to feed an uncontrolled population of birds. The actually pay a guy to run a jet ski on the Columbia to harass the birds.
