If you have ever run Uncompahgre (upper, lower, playpark), Cimarron or North Fork of Gunnison please help us protect flows there by answering this very brief survey: Cimarron, Uncompahgre, North Fork Survey

If you already answered the longer Gunnison River Flow Survey, there is no need to answer this one!

Out of the 20 sections we surveyed for on the bigger Gunnison Survey, we got plenty of responses (thank you boaters) to all of the other sections. But we need more data for these ones! This is one of our best shots at getting flows and boater interests protected on these reaches. So, if you have paddled there, please take a few moments and just let us know what you think good flows are... This needs to be done ASAP!

Thanks a ton,

Chris
