To Whom it may concern, Today 08/02, I was fishing on Boyd Lake. As I was headed south I decided to fish the canal. I noticed a boat on the east point of the canal and it looked to me like he was headed to the east so I pulled into the canal and headed in. I found out later at the ANS Checkout station as the gentleman was getting his boat checked that he was planning to go into the canal. He said to me " Hey Thanks a lot I was trolling into the canal and you cut me off. I apologized and told him that it looked like he was fishing the point and I thought he was headed to the east. He just gave me a dirty look. It was really bugging me so if he is on fishexplorer I want to say I am sorry that it happened and I don't do things like that. I honestly thought he was on the point and headed to the east. It is an unfortunate situation and I will learn from it. I hope I have never cut anyone off and hope that I have never made anyone feel that I have fished over them. If I have I am sorry and please feel free to talk to me about it. If anyone is ever fishing and you see me out there please feel free to come by and say hello. I love great conversation especially with fellow anglers.

Very well written Frank! Anyone who knows you knows that you are a gentleman as well as a fine fisherman! I had the pleasure of meeting your son at the Larimer County Expo this spring, and I must say that you have done a very good job of instilling your personal morals, values, and ethics into him as well! Don't worry too much about the incident youwrote of, keep on doing the right thing and it will all come back to you!
Where is the canal at Boyd? There are a couple of inlets, and I know there is a submerged trench in the middle of the lake between the two halves, another by the pumphouse, and another on the north end, but I have never seen a canal that you can drive a boat into (such as the one that Lonetree has on the northeast side)??
Well exactly where you are saying is what I meant. Out of the marina, go right. South. That point comes out and you are in a 50 yard area where the west is shallow by the point on right to the rocks on the left.
