Milo's noise is on-point.

We as kayakers need to live and paddle by "Leave No Trace" ethics every time and every place we paddle, whether it's a wilderness area or not - even shitholes like Confluence.
We need to have the best image possible when we try to argue for river access, block dumbass dams and other things. We need to be seen as good river stewards by everybody at all times. Really.

Don't be slobs out there. Take care of the rivers and canyons.

Mike, are you sure it's the poison ivy you're allergic to and not the sivs?

fishing debris at WW parks

is anyone else noticing a problem with fishing debris (old lures, hooks, bobbers, flies, etc) at their local water park? i go to the gunny park at least daily (not always to boat, sometimes just to sit by the river and chill) and just about every day I find some old lures, or some bobbers or an old line + hook or a fly.....just waiting for some unsuspecting person with bare feet to step on it!

i know as boaters we should respect everyone, but come on, why is fishing allowed at the white water park? how many miles of streams and creeks do fisherpeople have to go to where boats arent allowed, or simply cant go? we arent we entitled to our one zone free of fishermen? im not saying i dont like the fishermen themselves, im just saying the debris they leave behind is dangerous, and in a place like a whitewater park, where you have sun bathers, bbqr's, rafters, KIDS, dogs, etc running around with no shoes on, it just seems like it could be avoided very easily!

sorry, i dont want to hijack the thread, just speaking my mind to other complaints.....

For the record, I left a pole there. We also noticed pots, tarp, and sandal you mentioned as well as other debris. We took out some trash like a sponge and old minor scraps of plastic but yep, I left the pole. If anyone gets down there soon please remove it. I hope to run it again this fall and will grab it if its there. My apologies Milo and others. We cleaned up after our trip pretty well but that little red pole was left with good intentions. Sorry they upset you, I see your point.
