Processes for drawing Permits - Western River Waters
I am intimately familiar with the four rivers Lottery system but know next to nothing about other Western Rivers. While I have been a participant on the Gates and Westwater, gotten permits twice for the Salt, I am not comfortable with my knowledge of the process, deadlines, and workings of these permits. Can you'all provide the information regarding:
Gates of Lodore
Smith River (WY)
any California rivers (?)
What am I missing?
Specifically, I am looking for:
Permit Application periods
Internet or paper submission?
Website for permit data, demand graphs, etc.
Is it a Lottery, weighted system, or ????
Permit fees if/when successful
Any other pertinent information -
thanks in advance - Middle Fork and Selway permits are harder and harder to get!
