Fraser river access

Hi all,
This is to inform everyone that has been launching at the bridge on county road 84 that it is private property and the landowners have posted a "no trespassing" sign and have contacted the local sheriff's office to be ticketing cars and people who don't respect their wishes. They ask that people use alternate put-in's available on public lands and/or back to the old railroad track put-in. We lost this access because of trash being left around,ie:beer cans and cigarette butts, cars parked all over the road and also not asking for their permission.

Have a great boating season and be safe this year. It's going to be big!

Is the bridge close to Hwy 40, upstream or ??? on C R 84 near Tabernash?

What's private about the bridge access point or parking?

Pics of the bridge access point, parking and signage?

The land on either side of the river and either side of the bridge is private. This access isn't actually on the Fraser but is a tributary. If you don't know where this is, you're probably not using it. Just respect any signs you might find around the area. Cheers

If it's a county road and you launch from the bridge and park on the county road right of way it's fair game. But if the place is getting trashed and your climbing over and damaging fences perhaps it's best to find an other put in

Banks aren't involved, (we) people have ruined this access. Also, you can't launch from the bridge, you have to get on land, privately owned land, to put boats in the water. I wrote this thread not to argue but to inform people of a problem and save some people grief and hassles with the Man.

OK so this is the best option. Notice I did not say legal. When driving into the town of Tabernash, turn right before the Tabernash Tavern. Follow the road over the tracks and to the right. Preferred parking is in the big lot on the right. DO NOT leave your rigs down by the tracks next to the railroad signal. Hike your stuff down the tracks (yes this includes your raft).

History: The property owners (The Millers) did not appreciate the retarded car party that initiated the arrival of the DOW and the Sheriff last year. The local boating population, some of whom have known this family since birth are negotiating a possible put in solution. Please do not fuck this up. We have been asked to spread the word.

Facts:

1. The railroad put in is not legal. If UP is there, they will hassle you. People have gotten tix.
2. Be speedy, no rafter trash put-in party.
3. Respect the neighbors.
4. Minimize vehicles anywhere in Tabernash.
5. The local residents, property owners, LEOs, Grand County Boaters tend to be very chill people. However, if out-of-towners abuse these guidelines you will get static. Somepeople have negotiated the ability to put-in on private. This does not mean you can. Please try to be understanding of everyone's interest.

Thanks,
Local Boaters

Source of info? In Grand County we have "no parking" on county roads. As far as the land around a bridge, I don't know the law. If you are sure you have the right, all the local boating population asks is that you discuss this with the cops, AW etc. and the land owners prior to putting on.

Honestly, it's not like this put-in is great. I kindly ask that until a solution is worked out, people use the railroad put-in. The reality is that the Miller's are concerned about their liability due to some very low and sketchy footbridges below the put-in.

Local boaters are working with the landowners to see if this put-in is viable. If you put in on Hurd/Ranch creek by the bridge you are messing with this process.

Legal or not legal, PLEASE DO NOT USE THE BRIDGE PUT IN UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE.

THANKS,
LOCAL BOATERS

Where are these "alternate put-in's on public lands" located? We were kicked out of the old railroad put in a couple of years ago. That's why people have been using the bridge.
