Western Colorado

HELP! Part of my job is to find out what waters are considered navigable. What I am hoping for is a list or any suggestions of streams, creeks, etc. that a tube, kayak, or raft can run, even if it is only for one week during the spring. I am only looking for those located in Western Colorado. Any suggestions are appreciated. Thanks.

Get a copy of this book: Whitewater of the Southern Rockies

It contains many/most of W. CO's navigable waterways.

As far as the Durango area:

Animas River, Florida River, Los Pinos River, Vallecito Creek, Lime Creek, West Lime Creek, Cascade Creek, Hermosa Creek, Cement Creek, Mineral Creek, South Mineral Creek.

Also: La Plata River, Junction Creek, Lightner Creek, Miller Creek, Falls Creek, Cunningham Creek, Beaver Creek, Piedra (some of the tributaries of the Piedra look runnable).

I am sure others can add a lot more. Hope this gets you started.

We are trying to determine jurisdiction over navigable waters, by recreational purposes. If the decision that we have jurisdiction over these waters, we will be able to protect them from changes that could impede the water levels or change the course of those water ways.

Its my primitive understanding that as current federal regulations can be interpreted, the rain gutters on our rooftops are 'navigable waters' as are flash-flood gullys out in the middle of nowhere on the sides of plateaus and crud like that. Ill look for the language later. .. If I float my foamy through someones storm gutter which crosses private property, it isn't not tresspassing unless he it gets pinned or has to portage
