Roaring Fork Incident Today?

I was guiding a lower section on the Fork today - Gilman to 133 - and our shuttle driver saw a boat-full of gear, followed by an upside down boat (Vanguard maybe?) pass under the Catherine Store bridge. Apparently the police got called by a biker on the Rio Grande trail, and I remember seeing a fishing outfit of 3 shortly before then (of course not wearing PFDs, but those way cool fishing shirts instead). Just wondering if they collected all their gear/were OK. Anyone else hear of this?

The fishermen and guide are all O.K. They came around a bend into a downed tree. The dory was pinned and helpers were out this afternoon to retrieve the boat and the gear.
