I think one station did mention an island near the mish so that would be my assumption. Sucks big time.

Initial reports indicated the group was on a commercial rafting trip.

According to the 7 news article, it was RMA. Condolences to the family of the deceased, and best to the guide during this difficult time.

Sad news. It's always unfortunate when the river gets hungry.

Aside... Those people commenting on that article are ignorant rubes. It's always amazing to ms how ignorant the general public is a out our hobby.

Poudre/Mish Falls/Question from a reporter

Folks, I'm a reporter for the Coloradoan working on the story about this rafting death. I was hoping someone might be willing to provide some details about what the conditions at Mish Falls are like right now. I won't be asking you to comment directly on this gentleman's death, but to help explain to our readers what this area is like.

You can reach me at
