Today’s fishing opener has brought scads of traffic to the area. The roads are full of traffic and the boat landings at the major fishing lakes are full of trucks and boat trailers. We thought the restaurants would be crowded last night after witnessing the increased traffic levels, but not so. The fishing folk must have stayed in their cabins hoping to get an early start. Hopefully tonight will draw some business for some of the local establishments who’ve been waiting for the official kick-off of our summer season. Happy May Day!
