Piney River: Is it true?

So the rumor is that the forest service downed a bunch of trees over piney river in order to improve the eco system. If that is true I suspect they rendered piney river unrunnable. Can anybody vouch for that?

i don't think anyone's been in there for a few years and it would need a good off season flossing before paddling. i would think the FS has better ways to spends its time.

Turns out the forest service and the eagle county watershed councel dont have anything better to do. Check out these links for beta on the river/eco restoration of piney river and the camping around it. From reading the info in the links I suspect that the restoration is contained to only the couple of miles below the lake.
