By Karen Robes Meeks

Amid the opening of some recreational fishing and traffic expected to increase as a result, two lanes will be open at Port of Camas-Washougal ‘s launch ramp for launching and retrieval beginning May 5.

The most eastern and western lanes will be open for boaters as long as social distancing is practiced.

“The Port will continue to monitor launch activity and allow recreational launch ramp usage as long as it complies with social distancing requirements recommended by federal, state and local health officials to prevent the spread of COVID-19,” announced Port CEO David Ripp. “Should distancing become an issue at the ramps the Port may implement additional closures.”
