I personally flip off the Blue Valley Ranch every time I go by now. A few years ago I was out in my raft fishing. I was a professional fishing and raft guide for 6 years and worked at Down River. I know the rules. I was out with another guide buddy and fishing this section. We saw some people at the "ranch" and floated through without stopping/touching anything. As we crossed under the bridge before the Gore put-in, the sheriff was sitting there waiting for us. He then met us at the take-out and proceded to give us tickets. We went to court and the 100 year old judge in Hot Sulfer Springs did not even blink when listening to our story... Fine and probation. I know there are big fish in there and can tell you exactly what to use, but I am not sure it is worth it. The cops said, "It comes down to the land owners word against ours, and they have a lot more money." My 2 cents...
