    RR police are not to be taken lightly. They have big lattitude and minimal jurisdictional boundaries, if at all.

    Basically Federal agents, since their areas of patrol by nature cross state lines.

    Wow I lost count how many times I crossed, and walked those tracks. Glad I bought a boat when I did.

    Holy shit I literally came here to post this. Fucking Gustapo chilling at access near the tracks tonight. They even said the parking lot we were in was rail property. Even if you walk on any of the pebbles around the track they can ticket you. She was in a full on Police SUV.

    Apparently some retard got clipped by a train last weekend. What I consider natural selection they consider a liability.

    Someone start a Kickstarter to build one of those animal tunnels that fits spey rods

    edit: to be fair she was really nice and apologetic, but its pretty lame.

    The railroad police lady was nice and just doing her job. Apparently some dumbass got it by a train at Christmas tree hole so they are cracking down on railroad trespassers.

    I need a boat.

    Some guy walking his dog down by the Wallace mouth came up and told me that a couple wannabe cop types with BNSF were threatening to send people to jail for crossing the tracks.I thought this was an isolated incident but since this thread is here I guess not. Apparently I've been a criminal virtually my entire fishing career.

    That's a good question, wish I knew the answer. I do know that they real tight on safety and their dirt. Had to put a phone cable under tracks once, could not disturb dirt 20 feet ether side of tracks for 4 feet deep. Also had to encase the cable with in a steel pipe, and have a right of way pass. They sent an inspector to watch us too.

    Screw 'em. Blow the tracks.






    Does the NSA watch fly fishing boards?

    I have the skills to help with that, but you want to find the bridges: take out the abutments, not just the tracks. We did it in mainland China in `69, not once but twice.

    That's just me Kerry. I'm trying to figure out a few of your secret fishing spots. I only send notes to the NSA guys a couple times a year.

    The woman said you can walk under a trestle you just can't walk over nor on the tracks..nor on the pebbles the tracks are sitting on

    That being said she was nice and apologetic so a more aggressive one might still write you up for going under
