To all of us who "used" to bring our dogs to Westwater and leave them at the put-in with our vehicles. Last Monday we (kayakers) showed up with our dogs for a great day of high water. The River Ranger was really pissed-off and didn't allow us to leave our dogs unattended. He told us that dogs were no longer allowed at the put-in or at Cisco (the Ranger stated that coyote packs were an issue) and had we read our permit we would have been aware of our #@&%-up. He busted us big-time and it was completely our own fault. My apologies to the River Ranger for having to deal with one more idiot.
Sincerely,
Strider

that's why he was wound up on Monday!

The same day, were on Ruby/Horsetheif, making a lunch/check-in stop at the ranger station. As soon as the dogs hit land, the ranger was wound up about dogs being unleashed.

He quickly calmed down and was actually very friendly once we got all of the dogs leashed.

He sadi he had a bad dog-day already, now I know what he was talking about.

It has been my experience at the Ranger Station, that they have a lot of crap to deal with. If you make it hard on them, they'll make it really hard on you. but if you're cool and obey their rules, they are very cool.

dogs on leashes

I always make it a point to keep my dogs on a leash at the Ranger Station because I'd been reprimanded by a particular ranger before. I've found that if they are on a leash the rangers are usually pretty cool. It's hard though because most dogs, including mine, would rather not be on the leash.

yes we took dogs

We had six dogs for Ruby/Horsetheif and three of them satyed with us for Westwater. The ranger politely made sure that we knew that we were responsible for what the dogs did at the campsite i.e. clean up after them and don't let them mess with wildlife.

and they need PFDs

They need PFDs for the same stretch that people are required to wear 'em. No official regulations on Ruby/Horsetheif, as far as I know. But cleaning up after your dogs in common sense.
