Pinned Dory on the Upper Colorado

There is a pinned dory on river left just below Island Campsite. If you stay to the center you should be just fine. My river rangers and I tried to get it off the rock today, but with no luck. Hopefully as the water gets higher it will become dislodged. If not, then we will have wait until late July or early August when the flows are around 1,000 CFS.

Please refer any questions or observations to Shane Dittlinger at (970) 724-3003 or at [email protected].

Any info on the owners and how they did that? Might have to bring some snorkeling gear out this summer and snag myself some high end fishing gear.

Rookies and I took a peek at it today too. Thought it would be a good place for a real life Z drag, that boat is thrashed though. Didn't even attempt an unwrap. It's in the last rapid of Red Gore Canyon on the left, not exactly just below Island. The upstream bow appears to have snapped off, probably pretty sharp in there. Easy move around it.
