Dolores River Boating Advocates

Pinon Project

On May 20th, Dolores River Boating Advocates organized a trip down the Lower Dolores River. But this trip was different than others- it included 19 mentees from the Pinon Project. Most of the kids had never been on a river trip before, and they said it was a great way to meet new people and learn about each other while being on the river. KSJD's Austin Cope sat down with three of the kids who took the trip, as well as Dolores River Boating Advocates' Amber Clark and the Pinon Project's Lauren Lacourciere to hear stories from their trip.

The 2016 boating season on the lower Dolores River came with little warning, missed the Memorial Day weekend, and had two short peaks instead of one long one.

It’s time to get off the Dolores River if you’re below McPhee Dam and upstream from the confluence with the San Miguel River.

With McPhee Reservoir rising about a half-foot a day, reservoir managers are planning a "boating spill" starting Thursday or Friday, June 5th or 6th.
