Boat Traffic Increases

Posted: Updated:
Things are finally starting to heat up on the Missouri River.

The Game and Fish Department says there are more boats on the water than in previous years. And that means boaters need to be more cautious.

"Some of the bigger concerns are how fast and how close some of the operators are operating to each other. We get lots of complaints the last couple of weekends already on boats going too close to shore where people are fishing and kids are swimming in the water. We've had an incident where a couple of kayaks got swamped because people are going too fast by them," says District Game Warden Jackie Lundstrom. 

Game Warden Jackie Lundstrom says it's important to take it slow and be aware of your surroundings.
