Milo's noise is on-point.

We as kayakers need to live and paddle by "Leave No Trace" ethics every time and every place we paddle, whether it's a wilderness area or not - even shitholes like Confluence.
We need to have the best image possible when we try to argue for river access, block dumbass dams and other things. We need to be seen as good river stewards by everybody at all times. Really.

Don't be slobs out there. Take care of the rivers and canyons.

fishing debris at WW parks

is anyone else noticing a problem with fishing debris (old lures, hooks, bobbers, flies, etc) at their local water park? i go to the gunny park at least daily (not always to boat, sometimes just to sit by the river and chill) and just about every day I find some old lures, or some bobbers or an old line + hook or a fly.....just waiting for some unsuspecting person with bare feet to step on it!

i know as boaters we should respect everyone, but come on, why is fishing allowed at the white water park? how many miles of streams and creeks do fisherpeople have to go to where boats arent allowed, or simply cant go? we arent we entitled to our one zone free of fishermen? im not saying i dont like the fishermen themselves, im just saying the debris they leave behind is dangerous, and in a place like a whitewater park, where you have sun bathers, bbqr's, rafters, KIDS, dogs, etc running around with no shoes on, it just seems like it could be avoided very easily!

sorry, i dont want to hijack the thread, just speaking my mind to other complaints.....

For the record, I left a pole there. We also noticed pots, tarp, and sandal you mentioned as well as other debris. We took out some trash like a sponge and old minor scraps of plastic but yep, I left the pole. If anyone gets down there soon please remove it. I hope to run it again this fall and will grab it if its there. My apologies Milo and others. We cleaned up after our trip pretty well but that little red pole was left with good intentions. Sorry they upset you, I see your point.

......hobie....

...i am not trying to be a prick...just am....the pole was not that big of a deal....good piece of gear to left behind(i guess)....maybe a better place would have been a secret stash that you and your crew knew about...fires have never been legal, we just cheated...i was once asked by the ranger not to have them....i replied..."you go run the fucking thing and not have a fire"....."a fire is what brings you back to the planet after suffering the portage"....ranger understood but reminded me that it was illegal.....in 13 years and with so many overnighters i cant remember, no problems....the rangers at the BLACK are as nice and as helpful as can be....they have jobs to do and they're not easy at that park...so much carnage between hikers,fisherman,climbers and boaters....now they have to go down there.....and check to see if we had fires...then, if so, they'll be waiting for you ..huh x13hairboater....better not enjoy those frosty cold ones that you so much have earned...cause you're gonna get a dui or some related charge.......hey boys, what's that smell?... um, nothin' sir..(burp, fart and hiccup)....hopefully that burp does not contain TOXIC SMOKE.....get my point?.....cb420rangerjr

Wow...didn't mean to set anyone off with this thread. I guess i thought the people runnin it a lot were leaving the pots and fishing pole down there for the season. The other stuff was a little over the top, like the sandal, and trash and sponge and what not. Our group didn't leave anything down there but in retrospect we coulda packed out some of the junk at the camp. Unfortunately i can't get down there this weekend but some friends of mine are and i'll let them know about it.

Your right man, fishermen on the whole are inconsiderate with their fishin litter. But how much does it piss you off when a put in or section of water is restricted to boating. Besides who would enforce a no fishing area.

Next time you see someone fishin down there, give them a little friendly advice to clean up after themselves. Restrictions are lame. All we need is more rules.

To clarify, I am no fisherman. Ocean fishing when I was a kid but not a river type. I purchased the license the day before we put on and bought a very inexpensive pole and my lure/hook as well. I left it there after much consideration believing that others that are passing thru and have a license may enjoy a break fishing but never thought to themselfs to bring a pole. Dumb of me. I can admit it for sure and im sorry. But please be clear that I left nothing in or even near the river but rather in the cave. We removed some trash but yes, left a $13.99 Wally World special. Sorry paddling brethren'. Lesson learned.

Practice what you preach

When on the river and see trash, pick up at least one piece and pack it out. The river gods are always watching and will reward you.

HAHA Milo! You might be right. Maybe I should start saving those frosty cold ones for a time that I really earn it. Double headers must be worthy though? I'll talk to you later, I need to go do my daily jog up the flatirons with my kayak.
