The Colorado River —The Most Endangered River in America 2013

Tell Congress to oppose HR 1581, a major threat to our rivers, trout and public lands.

Backcountry roadless areas found within our nations wilderness and national forest provide essential fish and wildlife habitat and unparalleled hunting and fishing. Studies have shown that backcountry lands offer the longest hunting seasons, the most trophy bulls and bucks, and the highest hunter success rates. These areas contain strongholds for trout, salmon and steelhead, and provide clean, cold water to downstream fisheries. Even those hunters and anglers who never step foot in backcountry roadless areas benefit from the big game security habitat and clean water that these lands provide.

Take Action

Call or write your members of Congress. Representatives are poised to take action on this important issue in the coming days. Please call your members of congress through the capitol switchboard (202) 224-3121 and ask your Senators and Representatives to oppose the Wilderness and Roadless Area Release Act of 2011 (listed as HR 1581 in the House of Representatives and S. 1087 in the Senate).

A proposed pipeline to divert billions of gallons of water from Wyoming and Utah to Colorado's Front Range threatens more than the world-class trout fishing in the Green River and Flaming Gorge Reservoir. It poses a threat to a series of small communities and a way of life. This video from TU and the Sportsmen's Conservation Project shows why.

DENVER –– More than 100 river advocates holding signs and chanting slogans gathered in front of the Environmental Protection Agency building in downtown Denver Thursday to ask federal regulators to protect the Upper Colorado River system from proposed water diversions to the Front Range.“This is a moment of truth for the state,” said Sinjin Eberle, president of Colorado Trout Unlimited, which helped organize the gathering of Denver residents, kayakers, anglers, outdoor recreationists and other river supporters. “We have to do something to save our state’s namesake river from dying.” Scores of signs at the event underscored that theme, including “Don’t Suck the Upper Colorado River Dry,” “Protect Our Flows,” and “EPA: Be a Hero.” read more here
