I have posted in the past about the garbage that is being left on the River banks, pallets being left in the middle of the road, ski jets terrorizing those that are fishing from the bank, or some boats that have no respect for others. I must say that there are those boats that do know about respect and do their best not to make to big of waves when going by those on the banks, I understand that they have to keep speed up,however the ski jets are not that way. Some people look the other way when some of this stuff goes on however there are laws on the water just like if you were on the road ways. I will not give up on getting our river banks cleaned up and those that should not be on the waters off the water. I am not sure if this will get deleted but here is an example. We were down on the Yellowstone on the sand bar just south of where the boats are launched. 4 boats went by us doing there best not to wash us away and at the same time doing what they needed to do to get up the river( which was not only a sign of respect but showed they were true anglers. Here comes stupidity, he was driving a red Ski Jet which was pulled by a green Dodge, he had the whole river instead he came directly in front of us and kept going in circles and then weaving back in forth.The kids that were with us didnt understand what was going on. Its things like this that gets the unwanted attention of those that are looking at banning Jet Skies from the river. All in all we cant turn our heads away from all these issues,if we do eventually the banks will look like a dumping ground more then what they allready do and our recreation will be limited. I am not sure why no one else ever talks about these isues.
