Fishing for Safety
Another target group for the safety organizations: fishermen. The conditions brought on by the drought make zipping across the water to a favorite fishing spot particularly dangerous.
 
"Some fishermen believe they're out there just to fish and they don't realize that they have to comply with all of the safety regulations when it comes to boating,' MacDonald said. "The conditions are really hazardous because of the drought and you see it all across North America. Because of the drought, the areas where you used to be able to go over, now there are rocks and tree stumps, other debris down there. And because the water is kind of murky, you don't see it. You're traveling at 40 or 50 miles an hour and by the time your depth finder starts picking it up, it's too late. You're already over it."
