I guess I need to clarify - There's been talk about doing some kind of protest float past the Shaw development. If this happens it should be with backing of CW and/or AW (possibly with CROA?) or not at all. If they say no protest float, then no protest float. If its your home river, do what you normally do and be wary about touching banks or riverbed.
That said, any boating on Colorado rivers this year should be peaceful and polite, respectful to landowners. We need to bear in mind that rude behavior may be caught on tape and used against us in anti- Right to Float referendum campaigns this fall. As well as remembering that when encountering fishermen on the bank the best thing is a nod and wave, and give them a wide berth. They come out for quiet and want to concentrate on fish, not chat with every floater passing by.
