Dolores beta? —Below McPhee to Bradfield Bridge

Im looking to put-in somewhere below the dam to extend my trip a bit. Do y’all have any advice or insight into the section between the dam and Bradfield Bridge. I realize there is no ramp above Bradfield. Thanks!

Finally, a legitimate Dolores question that hasn't been previously discussed a hundred times!
Golf clap to you sir.
That's all I got, although, I have been wondering the same thing.

It’s all public land up there along the river. So no private land issue. Also, if you look at satellite imagery, you can see several dirt tracks leading down to the river. There is a recreation site below the dam, next to the river.
Maybe that helps though not sure exactly what you’re looking for.

Absolutely your info helps. Also wondering if there any hazards on that stretch of river such as fencing, diversion dams, or possibly a isolated hantavirus mouse colony that one should steer clear of.

Again; no personal experience. Nobody's diverting water down there. Can't see a reason for a cattle fence. The road/two track paralles the river up as far as you can get.
let us know what you find.
