Default CPW kicking around idea to increase resident fees

surprised nobody posted this yet.

http://cpw.state.co.us/aboutus/Pages...px?NewsID=5870

according to the sewing circle on the inferior messageboard, fees could almost double. (30 dollar increase)
I guess the shock n' net assclowns in gunnison, routt and moffat county need a raise, since they obviously exceeded their kill quota. and im sure the #fightfor15 battle is gonna be fought at the ANS inspection stations... effing bullpoop.

with that said and i'm talking out of both sides of my mouth..., Im not surprised and this was a long time coming. surprised that they held off this long on jacking fees up. I can name reasons why I'm pissed off all day, but the real one is that I know that im a financial cuckold, and at the end of the day... no matter how much the CPW will gangbang/spitroast/creampie my wallet with their homies... I'm still going to pay to legally fish in this state.
when I fished in northern NM this year in hopes of finding an untouched utopia, I met fly fishermen and pike guys who traveled to elevenmile to fish for quality pike, because they did not like the attitude their state had towards their favorite species of fish... and compared to us, they pay more to fish less water. (their fees were higher than wyoming and legal access to a lot of lakes sucked)
However, I will be fishing states more that have their shit together and love our money... like nebraska, wyoming, kansas, oklahoma, texas and florida.

Man. That's rough. If they were doing things that seemed like they were doing their best to enhance and nourish all the fish that are here I could swallow that a little easier. The way it is now I feel like they're against everything other than trout and salmon.

But like you said. I'll end up paying it. Which blows

It's the "P" part that always needs bailing out.

Wyoming loves your money, especially if you have a green license plate and speed. My family is the and I love love love fishing Wyoming, but be real. Three days there pays for your entire resident colo license. An out of state annual in wy is $112. I'm cheap, I never want to waste money just to waste it, but of all the things I'd give money to, the great outdoors and its stewards are something I'm happy to continue to pay a nominal fee for, even a slightly larger one.

The money I don't care about, the policies of the CPW that don't make sense I do.

They love my money but hate me. That's cuz Wyoming is the New Jersey of the Rockies, lol.

See slayer's fall/spring reports on why I'd happily fish in Wyoming. A day fishing in the underfished Lakes on the other side of the state line equates to about 5 dollars more in cost to fishing a South Park slampig lake When you factor in gas and bait.... And I see my efforts more rewarded.

hold on to your wallet. it isn't only the fishing license that will go up, the hunters will really see a boost in fees, they will have to take out a loan to hunt

Most folks understand inflation, higher costs, blah, blah. Someone above mentioned the P word, so we're paying for bird watching, etc. Our population has been growing leaps and bounds due to a better economy than most and the influx due to MJ. But when was the last time the division leased any new property? They've actually lost some leases. The private clubs seem to have no problem leasing crap loads of access. So...
#1 Have bigger user base.
#2 Have less access.
#3 Increase fees.
Repeat #3. Win, win, win.

An increase in entrance fees and park passes would be more equitable and generate more revenue.
