Trouts Fly Fishing has long believed in the preservation and continued conservation of our natural resources given the reliance our sport has on Mother Nature. It is with this mindset that we have been keeping an eye on the progress of the Peak Ranch Resource Project on the Blue River just north of Silverthorne. In short, this is a proposed gravel mine that would be located along the Blue, and there is concern about the environmental impacts of the operation on the river and surrounding area. There is additional concern about the increased traffic that will be a result of the gravel trucks needed for this operation.
You can read the full story of the current state of the mine proposal here (written by Jenna deJong, published by the Summit Daily).
The open public opinion portion of the review process has concluded, and we will certainly be updating our readers on the progress of this proposal.
