Ruby/Horsethief Fire Ban

We're floating ruby/horsetheif this weekend and I heard something about a fire ban. Anyone know what's up?

Yep, there is a fire ban. However you can still use charcoal in a fire pan, so turkey legs and smores are still a go.

I ran the stretch two weeks ago and was warned by the ranger that charcoal was not allowed. Gas stoves only.

Just got off Labyrinth and stillwater (i know crazy class II action) but the fire ban was in there and the ranger said some crazy fines if caught. No fire at all except gas stoves but the fire pan was still required. I wonder if guns and jet skies are still allowed on ruby

I think we'll float it on Sat and Sunday, maybe we'll see you. I'll have a blue Hyside shredder and several cans of PBR.

Check this website out they are avalable from numerous vendors. They are legal because they are propane, generaly the ban is because of blowing embers and such. If a propane stove is legal these are too. Campfire In A Can | Portable fire pits | Propane fire pits | Portable camp grill - Home

Not the same as a smoke in the eyes campfire but they are cool I have seen them in action. The logs are fragile I havent had one on the river yet but plan to. If anyone has any coments of how well they work on the river let me know.

Hey gaymo, I was there last week and ranger was cool with the charcoal in the fire pan. So open up a schlitz shove it up a whole chicken's bung hole and prepare to enjoy.

Even though fires are banned, they require a firepan in case someone had to build a fire in the event of an emergency. It's pretty standard practice on lots of permitted rivers even when fire bans are in place.
