Or, you can call it in to the proper agencies such as the BLM, sheriff, police, etc.

^This. Randdaddy's suggestion that a raft and its cargo are somehow comparable to finding a small item on a suburban sidewalk is inaccurate and not healthy for our community. Yes, writing your name on your boat is helpful (and law in some places) but should not be the final line in the sand. The suggestion is especially egregious on a thread in which the OP is genuinely trying to seek out their hard earned gear after an unfortunate experience on the river. The OP is going through some herculean hurdles of private property ownership, man-made obstacles and miles of river to reclaim their property.

I wish the OP the best of luck and hold out hope that some one is doing the right thing in aiding them in the process.

Think about chartering a plane and flying the river corridor yourself. Will save you a whole lot of time and effort.

Missing Rig Located

The missing oar rig was spotted this morning from the air. I will refrain until later from revealing the location so as to avoid potential vultures.

I must say, I have been in contact with dozens of people from all walks of life, up and down the river and in nearby towns: ranchers, rangers, law enforcement, pilots, boaters, business owners ---you name it . Folks have been exceptionally helpful, decent, and responsive.

I'll post an update after the rig is extracted.

Thanks all.
