i don't know about other people, but even more than going out on someone else's boat, i would love for an RV old timer to come on MY boat and show me what i'm doing right or wrong. can still take a nice donation for RVTA, gives anglers a head start on the reservoir, and avoids the problem of needing the six-pack license.
Good point about the Six-Pack, I didn't even think about that. But if someone has a 12-14 foot jon boat and somebody wants to pay them to take them out on a reservoir, who would know? After reading up on the six pack license part, its no wonder we dont have many freshwater guides in the state. $600 dollars and 3 weekends of 9-5 classes is a bit ridiculous for freshwater, though i think it makes sense for the bigger party boats going out on the ocean.

Your idea is great too! $50-$100 donation to RVTA gets you 2 hours of a knowledgable angler on your boat giving you tips about the body of water? Sounds great!!

sucks to see round valley numbers on the decline, however, I am not surprised. I refuse to fish round valley anymore. Cant believe im saying this, but it needs a higher park ranger/game warden influence. Launching a boat on a nice day is mobbed. people fishing in the boat launch area, taking pictures, having car photo shoots, kayaks, paddleboards are everywhere, and during the summer inflatable swans!!!

The park is over fished and need some of the recreational activites to be redirected to the actual park side.

^This is very true as well, I was out there with a buddy on Kayaks last summer and a 55+ woman flipped her tiny sailboat 10ft away from me. She had a life jacket on, but what a mess. Ever had a little old lady hang from your kayak paddle before?

There are definitely some changes that need to be made over there, but i dont see that happening anytime soon unfortunately. The state is really trying to make it welcoming to families which is working, and population in the area has grown a lot.
