So if the Gov't will not pay to have an official there to check you in, will they pay to have someone there to make sure you do not get checked in?

Probably nothing but a sign. Probably reading something like; recreation trips prohibited beyond this point dangerous waters lay ahead, due to flooding in Colorado area closed to recreation.

typical. I'm sure it doesn't cost any more to check people in then it does to keep people out.

I read in more than a few places that years ago, in the same shutdown situation, there was a chain across the Ferry road and someone patroled there to enforce it.

I can't say if that was true or not, or if it's a rumor that has kept on.....rumoring.

So if you launch the 30th then you won't have to deal with any rangers on the river?
