Based on my past experiences with running tourneys at Watchaug, the boat ramp is definitely not part of the state park, since every tournament permit I ever pulled for Watchaug included a special note instructing me that if I wished to use the picnic area parking lot for overflow parking, I would need to contact the park directly to get permission to do so.

Based on this and the other info posted here, it's safe to assume that Watchaug Pond boat ramp will be open as soon as they open up the trout waters.  :yes:

@Zero Thanks for posting these. My guess is that Watchaug Pond ramp will be open.

Probably no one there, might be closed?

Ya, my thoughts exactly. Let me see who else I can contact to ask about this. More to come...  :hmm:

No callback from Burlingame yet. Not surprising.

It's not real clear.  They said all parking areas will be closed, would think the ramp area is included?

I believe the parking areas they referred to were those for the state parks and beaches. But to be sure, I have called Burlingame State Park and left them a message. I will wait and see if they call me back or not with more info.

All beaches and state parks are closing Friday.  I would think that means Watchaug will be closed ?

@Joe P , that's a good question. But since the boat launch isn't part of the park, it just might still be open.

On another note, I got word from RI DEM today that all April tourneys are canceled.

o Opening Day of the trout-fishing season will not occur on its traditional date, which in a normal year would occur Saturday, April 11. DEM is still working out a plan to modify Opening Day. As soon as we have a plan in place, we will announce it.  -_-

@Zero Thanks for sharing this. RI should have just done what CT did. Now they will have a debacle on their hands  :facepalm:

No crowds on my boat   ;D

None on my boat either, @Joe P  (giggle)

Even with two people, we can stay more than 6 feet apart  :nod:

As of this afternoon, RI is now under a mandatory stay at home order, until April 13.

The order mentions that going outside for exercise is acceptable. So, I'm assuming that being on a lake, away from people is also acceptable. I guess we will find out  (giggle)

I managed to get out this afternoon from 3:30 till about 5:15. One bite, came unbuttoned almost immediately. Nothing else for my efforts. :nope:

Due to the new guidelines set by the governor of limiting gatherings to 5 people or less until APR 30TH, CT DEEP is cancelling all tourny permits during that timeframe. As such, the Pachaug Ice Breaker has been canceled.

Thanks for letting us know.

Thanks for posting this, Joe! This knot doesn't look too complicated, but I believe the Lefty Kreh knot is the easiest, especially if being tied on the water!
