Limits eased at two Utah fisheries in advance of dam repair and restoration plans 28.4.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Northeastern Utah is a bit of a drive for many Wasatch Front anglers but fishing at places such as the Green River, Flaming Gorge Reservoir or lakes on the North Slope of the Uintas is always good. Biologists from the Division of Wildlife Resources are working to add two more excellent fisheries in the area. A rotenone treatment for Pelican Lake 25 miles southeast of Roosevelt, once one of the top bluegill fisheries in the United States, has been rescheduled for October 2018. After all fish are ...

Green River caution issued as flow from Flaming Gorge Dam increases 31.3.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Snow melt and expected storms have combined to prompt the Daggett County Sheriff’s Office to issue a warning recreationists to keep a wary eye on the rising levels of the Green River. Sheriff Jerry Jorgensen said Friday that the river’s flow levels had topped 8600 cubic feet per second (cfs) following the Bureau of Reclamation’s decision to open the Flaming Gorge Dam’s bypass valves to shed excess water. “The river is flowing fast and high making it complicated to canoes and kayaks, and challen...

Planning is key for spring-break travel to southern Utah 21.3.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Few places in the West receive quite as much visitation as the lands around Moab during spring break. So visitors who are planning a trip to Moab or, for that matter, any southern Utah destination before Easter weekend (April 14-16) would do well to listen to BLM public-information officer Lisa Bryant’s advice: “We absolutely love it when people come to visit,” said the Moab-based official, “but plan your trip.” The sad thing for last-minute spring-break campers or those who hope to visit hot sp...

Hell’s Half Mile on the Green River devilish in 2017? 4.3.2017 Steamboat Pilot
Hell’s Half Mile, the infamous rapid on the Green River in Dinosaur National Monument, is expected to be heck this summer. The Green, where it flows through Moffat County, is teeing up a season of abundance for white water paddlers and anglers in 2017. People who drew multi-day rafting permits to run the Green though the Gates of Lodore this season might want to begin a weightlifting program now. A federal water agency predicted in February that the spring runoff into Flaming Gorge Dam, just upstream from the rafting put-in, will be among the highest ever recorded. Oars men and women will need to be stout to row the rapid. All that water has to go somewhere, and Hell’s Half Mile, guarded by Lucifer’s Rock, will be energized during the 2017 floating season. And, in spite of lackluster February snowfall, the Yampa River Basin is still on track to make a strong contribution to the summer river recreation season in Northwest Colorado. Hell’s Half Mile was named by explorer John Wesley Powell, whose ...

Rock and Mineral festival celebrates Utah's rich landscape 3.3.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Few places on earth offer geology as interesting as that found in Utah. From the Colorado Plateau to the basin and range of the West Desert to the Wasatch Front, the earth on display is almost unmatched in its variety. And this doesn’t even include the dinosaur fossils found in the state. So why not celebrate it? The tiny town of Green River on the Emery-Grand County line will be doing just that when it holds its Rock and Mineral Festival on March 31 to April 2, with the John Wesley Powell River...

After 10 years in exile, Indian immigrants reunite with their American-born son in rural Utah 26.2.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Green River It’s a happy time for Ken and Sarita Sah, who have just returned to Utah after 10 years of exile in their native India. But the homecoming comes with a bitter flavor and loaded with regret. On July 6, 2006, after 14 years in the United States, they departed willingly after losing an arduous appeal with immigration authorities. They were determined to work within the system, rather than disappearing among an estimated 11 million undocumented residents. It was costly. They left behi... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Three Washington state residents killed in I-70 crash near Green River 23.2.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Three people from Washington state died Tuesday night when the pickup truck in which they were riding rolled on Interstate 70 near Green River, the Utah Highway Patrol reported. The pickup was traveling west at about 9:24 p.m., just east of Green River, when it went off the left side of the road. The driver steered back onto the highway, but then overcorrected, which sent the vehicle into the median where it rolled several times, UHP reported. One man was ejected, while a man and a woman remaine... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>

Community Agriculture Alliance: CAWA to hold water workshop in Steamboat Springs 13.1.2017 Steamboat Pilot
By 2050, Colorado’s population will almost double to 10 million, bringing with it a water shortage of more than 500,000 acre feet per year. Municipalities will look to agricultural water as a source of supply. Much of the Colorado Water Plan directly and indirectly discusses agriculture, and the Colorado Ag Water Alliance is hosting a series of meetings around the state to give agricultural producers the opportunity to take an active role in the implementation of the Water Plan. CAWA is comprised of leaders across the state representing major industries of production agriculture. Their goal is to preserve Colorado’s irrigated agriculture through education and constructive dialogue. One meeting will be held for producers in the Yampa, White and Green River basins on March 22 in Steamboat Springs at the Steamboat Springs Community Center. The workshop will include discussions on the Colorado Water Plan, alternative transfer methods to “buy and dry,” how farmers can participate in such programs, new ...

Yellowstone's Mammoth Dining Room honored 12.1.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Many travelers have favorite places where they go back again and again when they are on the road. In Utah, for example, I always have to stop at Ray’s Tavern in Green River for a burger any time I’m near there. I love going to Maddox in Perry, the Little Wonder in Richfield, or the Kan Run in Beaver. I never consider a trip to Yellowstone complete without having dinner or lunch at the historic Mammoth Dining Room. Some Yellowstone lovers like Old Faithful or the great Lake Hotel. Those are good....

Prodded by a federal judge, Bureau of Land Management approves stalled drilling permits on Utah's West Tavaputs 7.1.2017 Salt Lake Tribune
Spurred by a federal judge, the Bureau of Land Management has issued permits allowing drilling on Utah’s West Tavaputs Plateau — after a Houston energy firm complained the agency’s insistence on additional environmental analysis violated federal law and would cost the company $46 million. U.S. District Court Judge David Nuffer last week granted an emergency injunction sought by EnerVest, Ltd., which now plans to resume drilling in the 20,000-acre project area that is near both cherished whitewat...

Letter: Oil lease auctions move into the dark 21.12.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Ansel Adams lamented, “It is horrifying that we have to fight our own government to save the environment.” On Dec. 13, EnergyNet, a Texas company contracted by the Bureau of Land Management, began to conduct Utah’s first online auction of leases to drill on 24 parcels consisting of 10,510 acres in the Green River District. (Nine Mile Canyon drilling leases have been “deferred” but not parcels in Argyle or Desolation canyons.) EnergyNet requires that participants in the sale of oil and gas prop...

BLM pulls leases in Utah's Nine Mile from auction 10.12.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
Federal land managers changed course on two oil and gas leases they had approved in Utah’s Nine Mile Canyon, the Green River tributary cutting across the energy-rich West Tavaputz Plateau and renowned for conspicuous rock art left by ancient Native Americans. The Bureau of Land Management was set to sell the leases, covering 1,550 acres, Tuesday along with 26 others at its quarterly auction for drilling rights on public lands managed by the Price and Vernal field offices. Instead, the agency wi... <iframe src="http://www.sltrib.com/csp/mediapool/sites/sltrib/pages/garss.csp" height="1" width="1" > </frame>
