Boating near Craig?

I was just offered a job that is in both Craig and Meeker this summer. What boating is near that area? Like within 3-4 hours?

The Poudre river is not too far, three hours and some depending on where you are going.

Also, watch out for the locals.

You have everything local to the steamboat area fairly close. Closest to cross mountain which usually has a good season, sections of the yampa, fish creek, willow creek are within an hour or two. Gore is within your driving range also the poudre (mentioned) as well as the vail valley +/- three hours so you get gilman/homestake, gore creek, and the eagle.

Close to the permitted runs like the yampa and gates. The meeker/Craig area might not have an in town run, but with some motivation there is fun in NW Colorado.

If 3 hours is close, then almost everything in the state is close to you except where you are coming from, but that is kinda how CO works in the first place. Everything is relatively close except durango. You are also 2 hours away from the Glenwood area for class 3/4 and a little bit of a drive can give you more class 4/5.
Shoot in 4 hours you can get from Meeker to Crested Butte
