In pretty sure both gateway marina
And the gold center are operating normally

I know for a fact that the marina is open
At least to boat owerns

Take a kid fishing they are the future of our sport and our world

Gateway Marina is open, that I know for certain. They gated off areas I didn't even know had a gate!

However city parks are open, I plan on using them this weekend, longer hike to where I generally want to go to...but better than not fishing at all.
