I wouldn’t be able to know that. It sounded like the launch was closed as a launch, not as a put in or place to park and walk to the water. Is it actually “no entry “?

That's kinda the point of this thread is to figure out what's going on, and why. 

Had a buddy ranting up a storm about all the locked gates.   I been at work so haven't tried to waterfowl or fish

Everyone needs to contact their federal legislators with phone calls and emails regarding this no matter who the user groups are. Anywhere you’re seeing recreation sites locked up, say something and tell other people to complain even if they’re bird watchers!

Can’t speak for here but the hiring for federal land management seasonal jobs is piss poor due to people making more money working elsewhere. The starting wage for a seasonal rec tech to clean toilets and rec sites is barely above the WA minimum wage.  Stagnant wages and lack of affordable housing are the primary causes. Easier solution is to lock things up which is sad!

For non fire seasonal jobs, places are lucky to see a dozen names on the hiring cert generated by the h.r departments. It’s a cluster ….

Shouldn’t everyone wait on a reason for the closure?  A web search shows that a few launches are in fact below pool minimum, and a couple of others are within inches of their pool minimum.

That hasn't prompted them to put in gates and shut them in past years

Is todays closure the issue or is the past on trial?

You like to argue, is it a favorite entertainment outlet of yours?

And you know they'd enforce that. Only the homeless and drug addicts get to commit crimes with no penalty!

My money is on they expect you to believe and accept what ever lie they throw at you.  My personal default is to NOT believe a word they say after decades of lies being exposed over the years.

This was my first thought haha. 4 1/2” cutoff wheel makes quick work. But it still doesn’t answer why they’re closing them in the first place

They are closed for "an abundance of caution"  which creates choke points and easy enforcement.  The ramps I saw after Thanksgiving where locked but could have been safely used by appropriate boat sizes.
