    Thanks but I don't drink. Likely won't be anyone up there to give you a ticket for running the Sauk. Even if there were I am not sure the wardens are aware or care that it is illegal to run a motorized boat on that river. I may take WW up on working all weekend. I am to bummed for fishing anymore. Thinking of selling off everything to do with river fishing and head for the salt. We might have another 10 to 20 years of fishing the sound before it is closed to all fishing.

    You know some of the crap spewed on this site is just that crap. What are you going to do? Shoot at the guy. That’s using your head. Are you going to throw rocks at him? That is really intelligent also. Or are you going to try and cast your lead weight into his boat? Good luck with that one. All of the above could be considered assault with intent to do harm. Not that any of the Skagit sled jockeys would call the cops on you but I do know of a few that would stop and kick you sorry ass all the way back to Seattle.

    I'm not even going be up there Kerry, nor would I ever think about doing any of the things you suggested, I'm just saying that some folks up there may not take too kindly to jet boating on the sauk....whether it is throwing rocks, or as HAS ALREADY HAPPENED in the past, sawing up a trailer, jet boating the sauk is risking more than a ticket. Oh and one more thing. You can bet that people willing to cut up a trailer don't ask whether you are from skidrow wooley or seattle before they do it.

    Tom, the Skagit is not the OP. The Skagit is a sled river and has been for a long time. Sorry be the fool that screws with someone trailer, rig or thinks he can get away with chucking shit at boats. We have been running sleds up the Sauk for 30 years. It has only recently be ruled illegal and I can honestly tell you that there are many that will and do ignore the law. No one with half a brain is going to saw up a trailer. If you know someone that is stupid enough to try it or thinks he is going to get away with throwing things at boats you had better warn them they could pay a heavy price.

    I here that you may be right ! the reason I keep bring up the sled in the sauk is because I don't think that they have the right to stop me. Yes they have the right to stop me from fishing from the boat but that is all. Read this and let me know what you think.

    He that was the guide service I seen last weekend out on the water. Those guys are hardcore! We cut his trailer into pieces - lol. But serious who would cut up someones trailer? You would need a hot saw and some time (like 2 hrs). The stories just get deeper and deeper around here.

    I read on another forum that a guy got his trailer stolen from the Kalama. They had to have used a torch because he said the lock didn't have enough room to get a saw between. I guess it was taken within an hour and a half time period. Scary.

    Cut up trailer? That's a first. However, I have heard of people returning to the boat launch, only to discover that their trailer tires had been slashed.

    Thanks Tom for the info I think we all know the rules. I just Questions if the game dept has the right to make there own rules over the state on navigable water way.
