I'm looking for a river map for the Moab Daily section of the Colorado. Haven't found much online. Any suggestions for where to order one?

Moab Stretch

www.westwaterbooks.com/

Canyonlands River Guide has the Colorado from Loma to Lake Powell, and the Green from Green River to the confluence. Probably not the best guide for Cataract, but a fine guide for Loma to Moab and Labyrinth/Stillwater. Really, the BLM map will do just fine for the 13 mile Moab daily stretch and other day runs. Fold it in half and laminate it if need be.

Reading the regulations on the BLM map I see this:
-All boats over 16 feet must have a type IV throwable PFD

I'm fairly new to rafting but I don't think I've ever seen that regulation before. I have a 14 so it doesn't apply to me.

Is it a common regulation in Utah?

Yes, has been for years. A throw bag satisfies the reg on rivers.

It is in Colorado as well. A throw bag works on our rivers as well.

Cool.

Throw bags I got. Type IV throwable PFDs (which I'm guessing are those seat cushion looking things) not so much. I do know people that carry them though and now I know why.

Thanks!

Hi,

True, BLM and some other agencies let you substitute a throw bag for the Type IV.

Be aware, however that at Grand Canyon, a throw bag is not an allowable substitute for a Type IV. Over the years, many treks have been made back to Page for a $10 "seat pad" before a trip could launch at Lees Ferry.

FWIW.
