Upper North Fork River Access-
Notice to all Upper North Fork boaters: Access to the river from the highway bridge is private property and CLOSED TO ALL BOATERS!
Please respect the landowners by following the guidebook directions to the put-in. Accessing the river from the highway means trespassing on private land. In speaking with several of the landowners at the put-in yesterday, it’s clear that groups of boaters are opting to trespass in order to put-in at the bridge. Please respect the landowners and don’t be tempted to put-in at the bridge.
To access the put-in, drive 1/4 miles past the bridge and park at the Trails End trailhead public parking area. From the trailhead, follow the trail above the river and private land about a mile southeast before the trail drops back down to the river.
p.s. On another note, the Upper North Fork of the Poudre was running at a historical high yesterday. According to the landowners, the river was the highest they’ve seen it in the 29 years they’ve lived there. It’s running at a prime HIGH level and is as clean as its ever been. Come and get it.
Spencer Heights Tree Update-
The tree blocking the entrance to Cyclotron (Spencer Heights) has been removed. Thanks to all who participated in the extrication efforts!
Sportsman gauge was 2ft yesterday morning with a trickle coming down Tunnel. At this rate, Spencer Heights will likely be running at prime flows by later this week.
