Fuck em! I have zero respect.
Anybody thats pestering animals that they dont plan to eat can stay the hell out of my way. They might as well be hunting with a paintball gun.

Probably won't need to worry about the rafts.
Still have to worry about rafts though as this tactic does not work with rafts.

There are many valid points here that are contradictory. Hunting with a paintball gun doesn't seem right to me but I bet it's really fun. The one thing I can't wrap my head around is how did the raft sneak up and run you over. Have you almost been hit on your bike by a steamroller?

Kayakers/Rafters and fish have a great ally in fishermen/fisher-women. Their clubs like Trout Unlimited are constantly involved with working to improve river access, clean water issues, minimum flows and fighting to stop unnecessary dams. What is good for the fish is good for kayaking or rafting "usually". They spend their time and money on river and fish habitat preservation. I for one do not mind passing by quietly and as far as is reasonable out of their way. I have never had one not respect my privacy, space, peace and quiet, so I try and do the same.

I don't know this particular situation, but rafts are not as slow as you might think. When the whole rafts paddles together, they are faster than most whitewater kayakers, unless they are trying to go fast. 2nd, it's pretty easy to get caught in a feature and have a raft run you over.

Wow, you should research the Spokane Whitewater Park and how Trout Unlimited shut it down. And why? Then look at where the park was going. And what a red banded trout is. What Trout Unlimited says natural red banded trout spawning habitat looks like. Because all i saw was busted up concrete, re-bar, garbage, and bums. Still that way today. Super sad loss for Spokane as community if you ask me. The truth is Trout Unlimited wants kayakers off the water in the PNW. Just saying....

That is the furthest thing from the truth in Colorado. I can not speak to the PNW, but here the whitewater community and the fishing community work hand in hand on a plethora of issues. In fact many people are members of both American Whitewater and Trout Unlimited....

I said "usually", there are always exceptions.

I have had fisherman linger, while I twas trying to fornicate zby the side of the great stream....

Other than that, I have no qualms, just as long as they don’t try to kick me off the run, or keep The flows down to a trickle, I’m happy to share the river, and hopefully have an ally in conservation.

P.s.
Still got laid, in spite of that orvis wearing fuck....

There is plenty of places to fish with no boating activity. When I fish boaty areas I accept there is going to be interaction of different people enjoying the river... it's trout fishing and who really cares... I mean how many trout have you caught in your life? Like a million? I cannot and will not take trout fishing seriously as it would ruin the fun for me.

Party on Wayne.
