Which is OK, if you are close. Sorta hard to make the drive only to get slapped with that charge.

I still do it now and again, but man...

Re: Larimer County Annual Boat Permits

I don't mind the higher rates keeps the morons off the lakes. Once LC opens I'm usually on one of those lakes 40 times a year. Then I will fish a state park during the summer and jet skiers will be on the lake after dark, drunk people driving around without lights on and I realize why I have a LC pass. Three yearls ago during the week nobody would be on the LC lakes at night. Till some jack asses on fish exploiter and this site seemed to not give a shit about lakes more people are on them now. So keep the rates high IMO

Me too. They want a bunch of money to fish and boat there. The DOW restocked their lake and the fishing is good, but not for non-lc anglers who pay out the a** to fish there. Back in the day, it was a great night bite on rouges but not now because of the inspection stations closing before the bite begins.

If I can avoid it, I'll never spend another $.01 with Larimer County.

Government entities will never volunteer to reduce revenue stream for any reason.

Re: Larimer County Annual Boat Permits

LC is pretty unreasonable with their fee structure if you ask me. When I lived in FoCo I got the pass every year, but living in Denver I don't buy it any more.

Re: Larimer County Annual Boat Permits

You know, it might be worth taking the time to write the head of Larimer County parks to ask them a couple of things.

First, you could ask them why the cost of boat permits has not gone down, yet the nominal boating season has been shortened from year-round (assuming the lakes were not frozen) to the more restricted one that now exists. I'd suggest even including a cost-per-month breakdown so that you can show that with the more expensive permits and the shortened season, the cost has increased substantially.

Next, you could ask them where the revenue from the increased costs is being spent, especially during the off-season months when there are not boats allowed on the lakes.

Finally, you might ask them if they have considered pro-rating their permits to reflect the shortened boating season, and if not, why.

I personally have already bought my LC permit, but since I typically fish from shore, I don't buy a boating permit (don't have a boat, either), so my ability to access the lakes has not been affected, and I'm still getting my money's worth. However, if I were a boater, I would be interested in hearing why the seasons have been reduced yet the permit costs have not.

One interesting bit of information some of you may not have come across: Larimer County Parks are currently conducting a survey about their permit process. You can see/take the survey here - unfortunately, they do not include a section for additional comments.

Re: Larimer County Annual Boat Permits

If you want to get your point across, you should make your case with a bill to the county for a refund of $70 for the months they do not allow you to boat. Then keep any correspondence to share with the media/local news investigative service
