Launch permits will be unlimited in 2015. Permits for launch dates through April 30th are available now. Permits for May, June and July launch dates will be available beginning the first Monday in March.

Trip Leaders and Alternate Trip Leaders

A trip leader may name one alternate trip leader per launch permit. Either the trip leader or the alternate trip leader must present the printed permit and a picture ID at the launch point, and be present on the entire river trip. Alternate trip leaders must be listed at the time the permit is first reserved.

Each person may be named as either a trip leader or an alternate trip leader on one overnight trip and up to three day-use trips at a time. To be named as a trip leader or an alternate on an additional permit, that person will need to either cancel one permit or complete one river trip.
