Gore Canyon Whitewater Park
Construction on the whitewater park at the Pumphouse recreation site is now complete. The feature consists of engineer-designed boulders and block-like concrete objects placed across the stream channel. The ribbon cutting ceremony took place on July 13, 2015.
Fish Population Surveys
Every year (water levels permitting) fishery biologists from Colorado Parks and Wildlife survey fish populations along the Upper Colorado River. The collected data is used to monitor fish population trends, evaluate the effectiveness of management decisions, and establish management goals.
Cottonwood Island Construction
Cottonwood Island Recreation Site (along the Colorado River Road north of Dotsero) will be under construction August 6-17, 2018. Although the site will not be closed, there may be significant delays to access facilities (boat ramp, picnic tables, etc) if the construction crew is currently working there. If possible, please use alternate river access sites. The BLM appreciates your cooperation.
