Upper Blue

Chainsaw weilding guys and gurls wanting to clear the river should respond or their won't be a navigable path about 1/4 mile past the pipeline. But I haven't seen much else since last run in Oct. @ 150cfs. First or second weekends in April? Let it run.

Don't have a chainsaw, but am willing to give a hand. I can probably rally some others as well, keep me in the loop.

Upper Blue tree still exists

Hey all. Paddled the Upper Blue yesterday. There is still a tree in the "canyon" section. It's nearly river wide, 1/4 mile+ past the pipeline, and is not really a problem for kayaks - sneak on the far left, unless of course, you're surfing the hole above and miss a roll or two. Rafts will have a problem, however, especially as the water goes up.

Is this section run commercially? If so, maybe someone should let the outfitters who run it know and maybe they'd take care of it. I know there are drift boats that fish it commercially.
