Some posters are confused! Both Christmas and Winkelman are far above the (Kelvin) put-in for this stretch of river.

This section is Class I, some of the sections above Winkelman have some class II from about 500 cfs up until flood stage. Be sure to stop at the Nugget Bar in Winkelman, or if it is payday at the mine, (every other Friday) the General Kearny Inn, in Kearny is a must. Locals are friendly, be nice.

Hattie Johnson

In her campaign, newly elected Governor Michelle Lujan Grisham laid out a plan to end work on the Gila River Diversion Project. This past Friday she took great strides towards that promise by vetoing $1.698M in New Mexico Unit funding requested by the Interstate Stream Commission for Gila diversion planning and design.

Speak Up NOW to Protect New Mexico’s Gila and San Francisco Rivers!

SIGN THIS CITIZEN SUPPORT LETTER TO PROTECT THE GILA AND SAN FRANCISCO RIVERS IN NEW MEXICO BEFORE THIS FRIDAY! 

On July 18, a coalition of recreationists, landowners, and conservations groups, including American Whitewater, submitted a formal proposal to the offices of Senator Heinrich and Senator Udall to designate 453.9 miles in the Gila River Watershed under the National Wild and Scenic Rivers Act. The proposal includes the mainstem Gila River, the San Francisco River, and select major tributaries to the Gila River, and would protect these prized river segments for future generations. Now, we need everyone to let Senator Heinrich and Senator Udall know that we care about these rivers and their many values - whether you are a New Mexican resident, visitor, or river lover, your voice can make a difference here.
