    Guess we shouldn’t make snap judgements, myself included , most people are good .
    I would say when I’m on my annual trip half the people at Critter are American and are decent folks

    A US citizen who lives in Delta, who also has a work permit in Canada and Canadian address can get a Canadian sports fishing license. Trust me, I know.

    Just came back from a trip to Nootka.... Launched at Gold River on Monday, came back today... Didn’t see a single U.S. registered vehicle, trailer, or boat either at the ramp or on the water... Definitely none with flattened tires... Fake news, didn’t happen..

    MMFN approach to managing this situation is excellent IMO. Hoping people respect their wishes.

    Does anyone know how much it’s to launch the boat and park per day? Also, is it ok to sleep in the boat at the parking?
    Thanks for the help

    just looking ahead at the tide levels on the day i’m launching and of course, it’s a wicked low tide for our approximate arrival.Does anyone remember how low it can go and still be launchable? i have a DE 185. i should remember but i’m drawing a blank. thx

    You will be able to float that off the trailer and get down the channel with a 3 ft tide....

    The actual launch area is pretty deep. It’s when you get down the channel/river a bit where things get dicey. Particularly on the east side of the channel just out from the launch. As said, 3 feet should be fine. I’ve launched my 23 footer in 3 feet and it was fine. But, every year things seem to shift around and sentiment can change things a bit. One year I made an error and launched in less than 3 feet. I lifted the motor and let the river drag me out. A real close call not to be repeated.

    20$ to launch and 15$ per night. The annual parking pass is 250$ covers launch and parking. I'm sure you could sleep In your boat on the trailer.

    yes and don’t forget the big ass boulder by the plane dock. it’s like 1 1/2 feet or something like that the day i arrive. can you still drive the trailer off the end of the ramp or has that been fixed as well?

    Not sure on that one. Never done it, hope not to.
