Great job on the fishing @NKlamerus
. I am not fishing any closed areas but I don't begrudge those who are willing to take that risk. I have read about ramps in Eastern, OR and some along the Columbia where the same thing is happening. Marked as closed, ignored by folks and enforcement not seeming to care. My guess is that as long as people are social distancing to the LEOs satisfaction that everything is fine.
Found this online. Seemed relevant!
Game warden: Didn’t you see the no-fishing sign, son?
Boy: I’m not fishing, sir. I’m teaching these worms how to swim!
Reminds of one of my favorite (rather long) fishing jokes/stories (this is highly paraphrased).
There is an old man who always comes back to town with his limit, never fails. The local game warden is curious about how he can catch fish when other folks are getting skunked so one day the warden asks the old man if he would mind if the warden came along with him on a trip. The old man thought that would be great and told the warden to meet him the next day at daybreak at the boat ramp. The warden was excited to learn the old man's secrets.
The next day arrives and the warden meets the old man at the boat ramp at the crack of dawn. They get in the boat and head across the lake. The warden looks at the tackle and the bait in the boat and doesn't see anything unusual. Normal rods, normal bait, nothing to explain the old man's success.
"It must be a secret spot," thought the warden, but instead they head to a well-known fishing spot and the old man drops the anchor. At this point, the warden is really confounded. He could see no explanation for the old man's success.
While the warden was pondering the situation the old man opened his tackle box and took out a stick of dynamite. The warden was shocked and said, "you can't use that!"
The old man casually lit the stick of dynamite, handed it to the warden and said, "Do you want to talk, or do you want to fish?"
