The sandwich boards telling visitors to stay away at Placerville turn were gone yesterday. I even saw a paddle cat on the stretch between placerville and Caddis despite signs informing that section doesn't run; especially at this low level.

Also there's a river wide strainer upstream from the Speice bridge. Totally visible from the road.

Attention: Consistent with guidance from state and local health authorities, the BLM is canceling all private river permits and commercial launches for the Westwater Canyon Special Recreation Management Area (SRMA) within the Moab Field Office beginning April 8 until further notice. Refunds for private permits will continue to be issued. In addition, all commercial use of the Moab Daily section of the Colorado River is suspended. The health and safety of recreational visitors and our staff is our number one priority. The BLM will continue to closely monitor the situation and respond as conditions change.

nice list Rich...have bike shuttled Boulder,Gore Crk.,So.Platte [dirty and Foxton/Waterton/Deckers],and all the town runs [Bear ,Cherry, Clear]..Waterton doesn't make much sense ,since you cant drive to the takeout,but you could run Foxton or Deckers thru Waterton ,carry back to Waterton. put in then bike to your car..biking that sucks with much traffic,but both the Colorado Trail and Buffalo Crk.are nearby w/biking and camping...a lot of times i will run Foxton and then walk or bike down to the rapids in Waterton to have a beer and smoke.have shouldered boats up Waterton many times ..not so fun with a bad knee ..


Is the bike path from Golden to Black Rock put in done and opened?Does it go all the way up to Kermit's ?

of the runs you listed Anthracite from Erickson Campground down and the Lake Fk. seem best for the OP's needs ....always thought it would be cool to bike shuttle Shoshone or on to Glenwood.If III was your cut off point for solo boating then the upper Taylor above the res has campgrounds and there is a run that at 1000 is basically one continuous III- rapid for 3 to 5 miles..Dinner Station [?] campground...

Park at (or ride to) Cache Bar and you don't need a shuttle. Float the main Salmon down to the South Fork, hike up to and over Horse Heaven ridge, float Big Creek down to the Middle Fork, then through the Impassable Canyon and back to where you started.

AKA "The River of Return".

Taylor Park isn't running this year. Topped out at 350 cfs and really it needs more like 500.... but it is a fantastic bicycle shuttle. The Gunnison Spur of the Colorado Trail parallels the river.

Heading to Taylor Canyon today for a bike shuttle run.

Given the number of fences strung across that section and definitely in play, I think it's important to mention it every time it's brought up.

Amazing there haven't been injuries or fatalities.
