Tusher Diversion Dam July 2017
Since it was difficult to find any updated information on this new project, I decided to post.
There is a boat shoot on river center/left. There are suppose to be two big obvious marker rocks to go between. These markers were covered with debris. There are four signs on river left indicating instructions. However, the sign said "boat shoot closed" when we were there. This was not true. Also there is a "trail' for portage on river left. You can also scout the dam from this area.
At 10,000 it is a fun wave to hit at the bottom of the boat shoot in my 15' NRS. I would not want to hit it sideways and canoes would certainly flip hitting it.
The new project cost 50 million. I'm pretty sure none of that was used on the portage trail or creating a boat ramp for all boat traffic. I'm surprised Utah spent any money on river rec so it is a pretty good deal all and all.
