    Hi I just move back out here from Texas and I’m checking out the lakes to fly fish for bass and a bunch of them say no body contact then I read a couple posts on the net if you have waders on you’re not making body contact and it’s OK.

    Is this true?
    Thx
    PS... Some of the rules out here are crazy. You can have a sit in kayak but not a sit on top kayak. What the heck?

    yes waders are a must if you wade or float tube.
    sit on top kayaks are fine, only lake that I've read that requires sit in kayak is lake Jennings.

    All the city lakes allow waders and tubes. Some of the other lakes (Poway, Jennings, Ramona) do not even allow that, I am told it is because there is $7000 in annual testing costs required by the state if they do. Doesn't make sense to me either.

    Speaking of moronic council members..Nathan Fletcher was the only no vote to go to phase 3 and open up more places! He's afraid it might hurt his hope of running for Mayor in 2024! If one person votes for him, they need their head examined!
