Great detail on your % of damn sizes. I live in Salida and run that streach all summer long with my family. I can see the enterance being mistaken posibly as a diversion outlet... the enterance is tight for a 14' boat. I also like the idea of a floating buoys line or some type of marker to funnel traffic into the spillway. OR JUST TAKE THE DAMN THING OUT ESPECIALLY SINCE IT'S NOT BEING USED. If it saves one more life it is well worth the cost.

This is not accurate information. It would be awesome if we could all remember that we lost a fellow river rat and that a lot of people are hurting over this. Of course, uninformed judgment of others can feel good I spose...

Come on, seriously.
Perhaps we also should hang green signs above the river every 1/2 mile too, saying things like
"Number One - 3/4 mile
Scout eddy 1/4 mile left."

Maybe we could put stop lights at every major rapid in Browns for those crowded days.
An HOV lane? Perhaps a toll lane...

It's a whitewater river.
It doesn't need any damn lights at night.
Boat at your own risk.

As stated before! The signage starts at Iona's bridge. One mile above the dam. Lights don't make a lot of sense. 8 months of the year they would be a waste.
