I hear ya.
I just came from a meeting with the local BLM office and here's what's new (spoiler alert: not much).
The thing is, the Slickrock access point is not public land, it is private. And the owners of that private land, after many years of allowing boater access, have now become concerned about liability, damage, etc. Not sure where that change came from - we just heard about it a few days ago - from the BLM office and from a post right here. One of our guys has talked to the wife, but won't get a chance to talk to the husband until the weekend, so hopefully we will get some word by monday. There is some BLM river frontage in the area and given these recent developments, there is talk of trying to develop an access point in the near future, but there is no time to get it done for this boating season, as it involves CDOT, a bulldozer, etc.
The property that includes the current river access point (78 acres) is going to be for sale soon, if anyone wants to buy it.....be pretty sweet to have a spot on the river....
