Jet skiers are one thing. If they're too close it's their personal choice to be a**holes.*

Someone in a whitewater raft is different.* Sometimes to be safe they don't have an option for what line to take.* I'd like to know more about the circumstances and whether the guide had an option to keep his boatload of folks away from the fisherman.

Wow. As much as I live fishing . . . it's only fishing.

I have been real close to wanting to do that myself on the Yampa in Steamboat. *I always have tubers float over my flyline and actually have the nerve to ask if I am having any luck? *I have a hard time dealing with that but I guess they have as much right to be there as I do. *Sucks though!

GUNNISON, Colo. -- Woman on rafting trip snagged by fish hook

(AP) -- The Gunnison County sheriff's office says a New Mexico woman on a commercial rafting trip in southwestern Colorado was pierced in the lip by a fishing hook -- maybe on purpose.

Deputies said today that witnesses think it was done deliberately by a disgruntled fly fisherman on the banks of the Taylor River.


Investigators say they couldn't find the suspect.

The 51-year-old woman's name and hometown were not released. She was treated at a Gunnison hospital and released.

The incident was reported to deputies on July 17.

Rafting down a river and a boat encrouching on your "territory" are two totally different things. Sometimes the only way or the safest way threw a section of water on a river raft is going to be where someone is fishing. Fisherman should understand this.
Now if this happened in a boat on a big lake I wouldnt feel bad for the boater, since even in the regulations it says stay 150 ft away from shore fisherman.

I think there is a big difference between this situation and say, what I had last weekend.

I was trolling probably 75 feet from the bouys at pueblo parallel to the damn with planer boards out about 25 feet. Had a guy in a big cabin type deal go between me and the bouys probably doing 40mph. And he gave me one of those disgusted looks when i flipped him off. I think i will buy one of those high power paint ball guns to keep in the boat.

No doubt!

On the river- Unacceptable
On the lake- Strongly Encouraged
