You want game wardens on the river....don't call VDGIF.  They know they don't have the manpower to make it happen.  There are only 3 GW's covering Patrick, Henry, Franklin, and Pittsylvania Counties right now.  As long as SML is in this district, you aint going to see them during boating season. Period. 
People need to start calling the politicians when they see violations(after you call the hotline) and complain about the lack of response to your call even with higher license fees. This is the only way to make a difference.  I know most of us HATE anything to do with politics, but that is the only hope for this river at this point.

Good point - I think you did this before but can you give us some names and contact info for the local and regional folks we should be contacting.
