2017 Quagga Mussel Issue
So everyone knew last year the impacts and potential issues with the Idaho Boat Inspections around the Preston Area. Well it doesn't sound good state wide for anyone. The state is saying they don't have the money to keep the current program funded and looking like those of you out of state who bring your boats to Idaho to fish, may end up having one hell of a big price increase. May want to get your stickers early before it goes up. And who knows what will happen to the Idaho Stickers.

I cant imagine what will happen in the Preston area this year with this on the board. They stopped so many from fishing great places last year with their high priced inspections locally, I can just see the canal companies totally just shutting down the boat fishing this year.

This may be extreme, but it sounds like there is only one Resivior in Montana that is infected. . Shut down all boating on this lake if you are afraid of it infecting other waters . Then we wouldn't need the 3 inspection station on the Montana boarder . Right now we have an entire County shut down . Franklin County . Looks like a small price to pay for Montana.

Don't worry some idiot will sneak them in and then we won't need inspections.

Interestingly, I purchased my sticker earlier today. What frustrates me the most is that in Utah out-of-staters who bring their boats to Utah aren't required to purchase a Utah sticker.
