DEC only closed theirs to follow the executive order .... i'm sure all unmanned launches will reopenThe Empire States Marine Trades Association pushed Cuomo to lift the ban on Marina operations. I doubt public launches were included. That leaves most of us still excluded. Maybe Cuomo will clarify this later today.
Where did you hear about family members?Received an email from Jessica Best at New Paltz DEC (she runs the Cooperative Angler Program) stating that the ban on launches by DEC and NYS Parks has been lifted. I went on DEC's website to the pages listing the boat launches by county and the yellow box saying they are closed is no longer there. It does appear however that members of different households cannot occupy the same boat. Can someone else please confirm this information?
Thanks Jessica, you are the best.
This is absolutely ludicrous and they can go to HELL.This is from the email received from DEC. "Do not share a car, boat, canoe, or kayak with people not in your household while traveling to fishing or boating sites. Anglers fishing from boats should always be able to maintain at least six feet of distance between one another. For more information about the benefits of being outdoors safely and responsibly, go to DEC's website: https://www.dec.ny.gov/outdoor/119881.html. "
