River blocks

Darryl Bangert, Cole Bangert and Brandon Heidemann, of Sage Outdoor Adventures, cut out a huge downed tree just upstream of the main bridge in Edwards on Saturday. If anyone around the valley sees downed timber in the rivers, please don't hesitate to call Sage. We have been the main outfitter cleaning up the rivers before the runoff happens for many years, and we like doing it! This one was bank to bank, with a fair amount of current already putting pressure on the branches and trunk. We cut it in 8 to 10 foot lengths so each piece would flush downstream as the water rises. Pieces of it are still in the river where it fell, and will start flushing throughout May.
