I am a little bit amazed at all the attention a possible dead Rainbow Trout on the Russian river has received lately here and in the paper. Not that I condone illegal fishing practices, but I think people would benefit more from discussing the near tragedy on Skilak Lake the other day and reminding each other about boating safety. I cant believe that I have not seen anything about this here, on other forums, or in the news. It seems to me that this would be the type of thing that the state would want people to hear about and make them think a little bit. Swamped boat, buddy floats off, Helo rescue, everyone OK (luckily). Just seems like a good time remind people how quick things can go upside down in a hurry, and that the water is **** cold. Stay Safe!
