Caution on the Yuba!

|Today on the Yuba River there were TWO boat crashs hitting something submerged just above or under the Hwy 70 bridge, If you think you want to try for stripers and or shad on the Yuba use extreme caution going near shad pad beach and the motorcycle track.|
The first boat hit something mid-channel and had to call for help. The water patrol officer from Yuba Co. Sheriff's Dept. came to help assist with the damaged first boat, and while he's helping our own Maury Hatch goes zipping by and hits the same object ripping out the bottom of his boat as well.
As I understand it, our own Andy Guibord was there too and help Maury get to shore where he sits with his boat on it's side full of water.
I saw the pictures of Maury's damaged boat from my buddy Bill Siler who is also a water patrol officer. Maybe we can get Bill to post that picture.
I'm sure more details will come up but for now I'd forget going near the Yuba for anything.
