Is anyone aware of any plans to create any new launch sites on the Upper Yakima? With the Bristol launch likely to be closed (see separate posts on the Bristol Subdivision) and the Bullfrog take-out also in jeopardy, boat access to the river will soon become a big problem in the Cle Elum area for those of us not building houses on the river. It seems WDFW hasn't had much interest in making improvements along the Yakima River, even though it is the only significant trout river in Washington suitable for floats. The usual question arises: what happens to all the money we pay for licenses and Discover passes? I suppose a club could buy some river access, but building a launch probably requires government approval, lots of money, and insurance. When you consider how many millions of dollars the state is willing to spend in attempts to prevent all Deaths By Covid, why can't it put something into river access and perhaps cut down on the number of people dying in logjams?
