    Well, we are hoping to keep our annual tradition of heading to Wishon the weekend it opens, usually first weekend in May or even for a Mother's Day outing. The trout are hungry and we are more than obliged to feed them 'crawlers. But, not seeing that happening this spring. Oh well, one week at a time.

    We actually considered heading up to Shaver for some shore fishing, a ways from any parking lot for sure, and just leaving the boat at home. But had second thoughts because of all the crazies that go up there for the day, pack the parking lots and slide down the snow mounds and have BBQs, picnics gatherings, etc. These are not people fishing, but people gathering in groups at the lake and right next to the public bathrooms. Screw that, we staying home.

    Thanks. It seemed like a logical reason and result.

If it's from the day purchased there would be no color coding and every fisherman would have to be pulled over and checked. If you're going to check somebody you might as well check for glass containers, alcohol in a no alcohol area, boat drunk driving assessment, drugs, bag limit, etc. It's easier and less intrusive based on calendar year. You really are better off with the system as is.

    Oh I know. I was just saying it would be nice to change it. I was giving an example of why some don't buy a license when they get an invite to go fishing in Nov and don't go. Of course they could buy a day license but... I'm just saying they would sell more fishing licenses to the casual fisherman that would buy it just in case they went again if they new it was good for a full year instead of just the remainder of a calendar year. For the serious fisherman like most of us here it doesn't matter since I fish all year.
