Can I take 2 clients in my drift boat on paid trips yet ? Social distancing is not really an option in this situation.

Are charters and guides in general allowed to start earning a living again ?

*I have not purchased a 2020 guides license yet due to all that is going on and my inability to utilize it. Hoping for some sort of clarification soon.

Thanks for all you do for us sportsman.

If you are worried about COVID 19 limit the number of people on your vessel to allow a 6' distance between you and wear a mask (face covering). I would also acknowledge what others have said in this post.

there is no way possible to put 6' in between myself and clients in a 16' drift boat that is only 5' wide which is the size of the boat I guide from. social distancing of 6' is not an option for these types of trips.

would I be okto guide in drift boat if all of us wear masks being closer than 6' ?

Just go Mike. Nobody else ever followed the rules. Start making money again if you can get it!

I have been proud of the way our Governor and the DEEP have handled the Covid 19 crisis. Not closing the state parks and boat launches, and continuing to stock the trout streams and lakes, has given all of us, including non-residents as required by the Constitution's Bill of Rights, the opportunity to continue to get out of the house and use our recreational assets. It has created some level of normalcy in an abnormal time.
Conversely, states like Mass. and R.I., that bar non-resident users to various assets like boat launches, marinas, etc. violate our rights as non-residents and accomplish virtually nothing for their efforts other than to demonstrate again their ability to snub their noses at our U.S. Constitution. If they can do it for a virus they can do it for anything they want. No way to fence this to just a virus.
