This is the future of our rivers.

JDM, is correct, the future is now, recreational fishing is not possible (enjoyable) on most of the main stem rivers for much of the season. No big deal, there are plenty of funky places with just enough water to float a boat that haven’t been spoiled by recreational boating.

A lot of states, Missouri included, don't have the guts to outlaw this kind of extreme jet boat stuff.  If you watch some of the videos, some of those guys are running creeks way too small for ordinary jetboats, and it's only a matter of time before it gets popular in this state.  In Montana close to where we are, a small group of idiots started running the Shields River in those little super high speed jetboats...the lower Shields is about the size of rivers around here that are barely floatable and totally unrunnable by ordinary jetboats.  The Fish and Game Commission immediately stepped in and put a stop to it.  Heck, they don't allow ANY motorized craft on the upper Yellowstone down to Big Timber.  They were smart enough to nip this stuff in the bud.
