BLM Kremmling Offers Opportunity for River Entrepreneurs

BLMIn an effort to ensure a variety of recreational opportunities are available within the Upper Colorado River Special Recreation Management Area, the Bureau of Land Management Kremmling Field Office is encouraging special recreation permit applications from commercial entities that can provide unique opportunities for the public. In particular, the office is looking for applications from guides and outfitters that provide fishing trips for special populations or people with disabilities; accredited universities seeking to incorporate visits to the area into its coursework; or other opportunities not currently available, either for the general public or for underserved populations. The Kremmling Field Office managed 61 river-related commercial recreation permits during the 2014 season. There were also five event permits and letters of agreement for two additional groups. The commercial recreation permits currently allow guided fishing trips, kayak and stand up paddle boarding instruction, vehicle shuttles, equipment rentals and guided floatboating trips, which includes rafting, kayaking, and stand up paddle boarding. The field office received an additional 15 applications for similar activities in August when it opened the application process for 2015.
