It is that time of year again when Routt County families will head out into the forest to find that perfect Christmas tree — or maybe a not-so-perfect tree. The U.S. Forest Service again is selling Christmas tree permits, and the $10 permits can be picked up from the Steamboat Forest Service office at 925 Weiss Drive or at the office in Yampa at 300 Roselawn St. Staff members can offer suggestions for where to hunt for trees. Each household can purchase as many as five permits. Each of the permits is good for one tree to be used for personal use. "Christmas tree cutting has taken place on the Medicine Bow-Routt National Forests for many decades and there remains an abundance of young trees for visitors to obtain," Forest Service spokesman Aaron Voos said in a news release. "Tree cutting regulations have been established to maintain a healthy forest environment and sustainable forest management program." Trees cannot be cut down from wilderness areas, and permits should be clearly displayed around the ...

Stagecoach tailwaters receive face lift 6.10.2014 Steamboat Pilot
A popular fly-fishing stream at the tailwaters of Stagecoach Reservoir received the finishing touches of a complete restoration during the weekend as part of a project by Colorado Parks and Wildlife. Heavy use by fishermen throughout the years had adversely impacted the riparian habitat alongside the creek that runs from Stagecoach Reservoir, causing erosion, a lack of riparian vegetation and the widening of the stream, all of which aren't great for fish, according to Billy Atkinson, an aquatic biologist with Colorado Parks and Wildlife. “Most anglers don't realize what walking through a patch of vegetation could cause,” said Atkinson, who helped spearhead the restoration project. “A lot of people don't really understand the connection between a healthy riparian zone and a healthy fishery.” The restoration project has been in the works for more than three years and involved the use of heavy machinery to re-contour the stream to be narrower, to avoid having areas where the water could be too shallow for ...
