Todd, I have folks in boats and rafts fishing with fly rods park opposite me on the Sauk and cast into water I was fishing. It has nothing to do with the type of fishing gear one uses. However, banning fishing from boats would allow the fish more sanctuary for the simple reason that there would be more holding water that would not be able to be fished. I amazes me that banning fishing from boats or other floating devices has been the rule on Montana's Madison since the early '80's and on Oregon's Deschutes since about the same time, yet neither river suffers from a lack of fisherman whether they use gear, spinning, or fly rods. Since Montana has a ban on outfitters and guides floating the Big Hole river certain days of the week, perhaps not allowing fishing from a boat certain days of the week is needed. A regulation that only allows fishing from a boat on say Sunday to Wednesday and bans fishing from a boat on Thursday to Saturday would be more acceptable to you. I simply would like to see the fish have a bit more of a chance to not be hooked and banning fishing from a boat or other floating device on the Sauk would do just that. No restrictions on type of rod or lure used to fish, simply a ban on fishing from a boat.
