Horse Creek

Construction on the Horse Creek River Access Site is moving along nicely. We expect to have a grand opening on 9/13. For obvious reasons, the site must remain closed until we have the "all clear" from the Project Manager and contractor. I will post an update as construction starts to wind down.

Red Dirt Creek will be the subject of a management planning effort in 2014. It is extremely doubtful that we will build a ramp there given the terrible access road into the site, the desire to preserve riparian habitat and, of course, budget constraints. Stay tuned on Red Dirt.

As always, please feel free to call me with additional questions.

Catamount

How long is the float from Catamount to Horse Creek?
Do you a view of this take out on a river map?

Horse Creek River Access Site is approximately 11 miles upstream from Dotsero, Catamount is 27 miles upstream from Dotsero - so I guess that would make for a 16 mile float +/-.

If you want a shorter float you can put on at Pinball, which would make for a 7 mile float to Horse Creek.

The BLM is working to update the River Recreation Map, not sure when it will be completed.
