If you were looking for the same info as me, a simple phone call to the sheriff offices involved will work, it did for me.

Jefferson County dispatch said Clear Creek is not closed to kayakers at this point. That was five minutes ago.
Clear Creek County Sheriffs office said Clear Creek was not closed to kayakers, and that they are not writing tickets to boaters, however they advised against boating on the creek due to debris moving downstream.

Two phone calls, polite conversations, and I received a yes or no answer.

Stop wasting everyone's time that is reading this post looking for an answer that is on many boaters minds. Yes, Clear Creek is open to kayakers.
You may want to put a call in to the State Patrol as well. They harassed me twice last night. Exactly what I was talking about in my earlier post. The right hand is not working with the left. So clearly it is not that simple. How do you argue with a clearly stated no tubers, rafters, or kayakers on a sign? Haven't been up yet this morning to see if they changed the wording.

When I saw the sign it said no tubing or rafting Clear Creek. The implication I got was that they meant tubers and Wal-Mart rafts rather then white water craft.

I got a call back from Jeffco saying the creek was not closed to kayaking. Awesome.

As of 9:00 am, the aforementioned sign on Highway 6 states that the canyon is still closed to "tubing, rafting and kayaking". After calling state patrol, clear Creek County Sheriff office (Idaho Springs and Golden) it seems like no one is aware or upholding the "closure."

We should all make an effort to be self sufficient and not rely on emergency resources. Emergency personnel in Boulder, Jefferson and Larimer Counties are exhausted and fist bumping kayakers should be the least of their concerns. Stay out of the spotlight and go get some.

Just my two cents, be safe, have fun!

The "disaster emergency" in jefco was declared as 1: a precautionary measure and 2: a way to get FEMA and other federal disaster relief $$$. The county is defiantly playing CYA. As for the signs, Sheriff and CO Hwy Patrol, The front range is in a disaster mindset. Communications between departments are fragmented. Having the left hand to communicate efficiently with the right hand is pretty hard when resources are stretched. I could care less if you go boat CC, just do it safely.

As an aside, A few friends and I have been trying to brainstorm any way we can help people on the front range, especially boaters. I know Matt Booth is probably one of the most affected, as is the poster in this thread from Jamestown. We would love to help in any way possible. From bringing easy up tents, full kitchen and supplies up to a evacuation center, or other location to help cook food for relief workers or locals just needing a boost. By bringing Kids toys, clothes and personal hygiene items up to a distribution center or by helping a family drain, gut and remodel a flood affected house.

I know that I am not the only one with a garge full of raft kitchen supplies, old toys and clothes and tools. I have a full time job and kids and not a lot of extra $$, but can not only send out my best wishes to those affected by this disaster, but offer myself as a help in anything I can do. I feel like the clean up effort is going to take massive amounts of work and time.

Let me know if you have any ideas, and please, get some if you can / want to, but also help you neighbors and friends as much as you can.
