Good news, I drove by the Tulista ramp at 4pm and the sign saying the ramp is closed tomorrow is gone. The frame and stand is still there , lying on its side, but it's blank. I guess a new sign is in the works...
I just received a reply to my email that I sent the mayor saying that the ramp will remain open. I was a little surprised to be honest, to not only get a reply from my original email that I sent, but also getting another one back with the final decision. Good on him.
At least the launch in Sidney is going to be open for all and not just a certain group of people like Port Moody. Absolutely ridiculous that is. Congrats and thanks to all of you guys who took action to keep the ramp open.
Lake cowichan marina has been closed to day launches for a couple years due to abuse of people using facility and not paying. The one by the weir is likely open. Either timberwest or the town should be able to tell you definitively
Launched at Pedder Bay yesterday and the attendant said that they have no plans of closing the ramp. The launch was free for the month of April but back to the fee based launch now. They also have a 10 time launch card for $90 or yearly unlimited for $200. I don't believe they had this before. The yearly is good for those that normally go a couple times a week.
Just wanted to say a big " thank-you " to sidney anglers for standing up to the plate and offering there services to keep the boat launch open . We were greeted by two of them today standing in the rain giving us ample information in these uneasy times ! Thanks again.
