Upper Colorado River Wild and Scenic Stakeholder Group Management Plan

The Upper Colorado River Wild and Scenic Stakeholder Group has finalized a plan for protecting recreational floatboating and recreational fishing values along the Upper Colorado River from Kremmling to Glenwood Springs. The Kremmling and Colorado River Valley BLM Field Offices and White River National Forest have approved this plan for managing segments 4 through 7 of the Upper Colorado River. The collaborative plan balances permanent protection of the recreational values, certainty for the stakeholders, water project yield, and flexibility for water users. Through the cooperative and voluntary efforts of interested water users, local governments, and other entities, the recreational values can be protected in ways that coordinate with federal agency management. The stakeholders’ plan is available on ePlanning. For more information about the National Wild and Scenic Rivers System, visit www.rivers.gov.
