Boating season starts Friday at Ridgway State Park when the boat ramp opens at 8 a.m.
The Aquatic Nuisance Species inspection station also opens and inspectors will be available from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. every day until next fall. Boaters are reminded that they must have their boats inspected before launching. Boats should arrive at the inspection station clean, drained and dry. Make sure mud and dirt is removed from all parts of the boat and the engine. The inspection process will go faster for those with clean boats.More
