San Miguel -- taut wire stretched across river
A couple of days ago a group of boaters encountered what they described as a length of bailing wire stretched taut across the San Miguel River just above Brooks Bridge (just upriver from the power plant). The lead kayaker saw it in time and was able to use her paddle to push the wire up over her head and warn the rafts behind her. There's a PVC fence across the river just a few feet upstream of the wire. I believe the group removed the wire, but be aware that it may be replaced. There was no flagging or any other marking to make it easy to see. The group is notifying Montrose County Sheriff's Office.
