Hey, river lovers, if you’re in the Denver area this week, put this on your schedule: Trout Unlimited is helping stage a lunchtime Rally for the Rivers in Denver Thursday, Jan. 26 outside the EPA building downtown. The goal is to let our state and federal decision-makers know that the Upper Colorado and Fraser Rivers–beloved by generations of anglers–are on the verge of ecological collapse due to water diversions. Unless our leaders do the right thing for the rivers and ensure healthy flows, these magnificent waters face a long, sad decline. Speakers include Field and Stream magazine editor-at-large Kirk Deeter and CTU president Sinjin Eberle.
