Just goes to show the joke is true......

closing rivers!

Careful what you ask for, closing the river to boaters is just one step up from closing it to tubing and in some minds the two sports are one and the same.

I remember one time running Boulder Creek about 10 years ago at very high levels and having some fire department rescue people tell us to get off the river because it was unsafe. It wasn't unsafe, it was awesome and still brings a smile to my face thinking about it.

If they can close it to tubers they can close it to kayakers!

Leave it open for the fools at all levels.....

hey now...tubers are fun

it gives us kayakers with excessive amounts of rescue gear a chance to practice rescuing the stoopid, the drunk, the stoned, the brainless, occasionally topless females, or any combination of the above.

So how do you Z-drag a pinned tube? LOL

How about just requiring PFDs while in the river? At least if the water gets high enough to recirulate people in Widowmaker.

I for one have tubed a lot, but I know what level the river should be for me to be safe. Don't laugh, now, I've seen the light and put the tube away and took the kayak out

... and a helmet.

These requirements would accomplish two things:

1. Anybody without access to a PFD and helmet (most tubers) would not have access.
2. The tubers with PFD and helmets would be nearly as safe as the kayakers (I said nearly)

River closed?

I heard on the news tonight that they plan to close many sections of the boulder creeks to "most water craft" starting tomorrow until the levels return to lower levels.... Any PRB-ites have any info on this?

Kayaks and whitewater canoes are excluded from the ban.

It'll be closed from Ned to Erie.
