Pinned Raft Lower Eagle... Info?

Good morning, I'm an Eagle County first responder. If you have any info on a pinned raft between Interstate and Dead Cow rapids, please call 970-479-2200.

Thanks,

Dave

Pinned Raft Lower Eagle... Info?

Could you provide more details please? Like which side of the river, if it's blocking a main Channel, is there rope splattered all over, or if it's posing a threat to other river users?... I'd hate for there to be another accident like what happened on the upper Colorado. Thanks-

The boat has been removed, not a hazard. It was on a strainer that is already a hazard, so no change there. I'll share more info through the official channels when I can.

Thanks!

That strainer isn't anything new, either, one of the many near the bank that is easily spotted and avoided.

This guy lost his boat from Wolcott. Thinks some one stole it by floating it down river. Could it be the same boat? Seems more likely it wasn't secured completely and maybe left on its own?
