What I dont understand is how farmers and many landowners here in Cody, Wy change the river bed all the time. A ranch owner below Deer Creek went into the creek bed with a small bulldozer on forest service and moved the entire stream bed around and destroyed our gauge rock which was the size of a dumpster. They have done this numerous times to help with there irrigation intakes and keep the high water in the stream bed. I have seen this exact thing happen on numerous rivers in the area and I feel like its going under the radar completely. It seems very wrong and to see someone get in trouble for moving a few boulders around sounds ridiculous, someone has too much time on there hands to be making complaints like that. It just seems like farmers can get away with moving the streambed around and nobody complains about that. The South Fork River has a mile section of bank lined with a rubber mating type material too keep the bank from eroding and im sure the ranch owner never got a permit for that and its an absolute eye soar.
