Bennett Spring opener as usual or Covid effect?

Just took a stroll through a very busy roaring river. I assume all the trout parks will be normal if not busier than normal. 

Yep,.   Go to any "gathering", anywhere, and you'll immediately realize that the majority of people aren't buying into the Covid malarkey.    Or maybe they've all had their shots and feel bulletproof once again. 😅

Buried an uncle, neighbor and coworker last year due to Covid malarky.

Sorry to hear that. 

Buried 2 aquantances of my own, and one friend of my daughters due to traffic malarky.      Maybe the rising fuel costs will reduce fatal accidents by keeping some away from the wrong place/wrong time.  

I take it that you'll not be at the Trout Park on opening day. 

Me either. 👍

I think maybe more people will be fishing, as we all noticed last year, because they don't have anything better to do....due to Covid. 🧐

Looking at the current trout cam for Bennett's, looks like quite a few less folks than I would have imagined along the spillway.

Maybe most folks all limited out and are putting their trout in the cars to get ready to go back out with another stringer :slow:.

Quite possible. I don't know that I'd do an opener "shoulder to shoulder," but fishing the park under normal conditions wouldn't bother me at all.

I did get dissuaded  from going to the park last summer. I didn't like the idea of everyone converging on showerhouses, bathrooms, the park store, etc. along with the stops you make to get gas and so on. I saw a needless risk of being in a confined space with the virus.
