Clean. Drain. Dry.

Clean. Drain. Dry.

Clean. Drain. Dry.

Every time you leave the boat ramp.

Clean. Drain. Dry.

That is the rule now. The means every time you pull out. Take time to clean, drain, and dry your vessel. Pay particialuar attention to pulling off weeds. Get all fo theater out of the boat. And, drive fast to dry.

CLEAN.

  • Completely remove all mud, water, and vegetation before leaving the access area.
  • Inspect your boat, trailer, and all gear. Pay attention to crevices and hidden areas.
  • Remove all vegetation (by hand or sprayer).
  • Remove all mud (use a pressurized power sprayer, found at most do-it-yourself car washes). The hot water kills organisms and the pressure removes mud and vegetation. No need to use chemicals or soap.
  • Dispose of debris in trash or on dry land away from water or ramp.

DRAIN.

  • Drain all water from watercraft and equipment.
  • Drain or remove water from boat, bilge, live well, engine, internal compartments, and bait buckets by removing drain plugs before leaving the access area.

DRY.

  • Aquatic invaders can survive only in water and wet areas.
  • Dry your watercraft and fishing equipment thoroughly; this will kill most invasive species. The longer you keep your watercraft, trailer, waders, and other equipment outside in the hot sun between fishing trips, the better.
