Things are getting so busy and congested at the La Jolla Shores, CA lone boat ramp that city officials are considering a lottery system to help ease the weekend traffic.

A recent workshop was held with officials and the local commercial kayak operators to try to figure out a solution to the problem that runs from mid-June through to the beginning of September.

The city is proposing a lottery for designated time slots on Saturdays and Sundays and restricting the number of kayaks out on the water at any given time.

Guidelines and information on the lottery will be released to kayak operators by the end of August or early September.
