The Lower Blue River has always been on contentious stream in terms of access and notoriety, and with a BLM land swap that would eliminate public access to a 15 mile stretch of river, things are about to get interesting. The Summit Daily News reports:
"Both banks of a 15-mile stretch of the Blue River could come under private ownership if the Bureau of Land Management approves its preferred draft resource management plan, which grandfathers land exchanges already under way even when those properties involve river corridors."
Obviously this could have long reaching implications for anglers and recreational boaters who have long enjoyed access to this unique stretch of water.
