Colorado River Conservation

Protecting the majestic nature of the Colorado River
is of great importance to us here at Lees Ferry Fly Fishing. Without the
life-giving waters that flow through this corner of Arizona, we can’t offer the
world-class fishing experience that we’ve grown accustomed to and which our
customers have come to expect of us.
Forecasts of drought have hung heavy in the
atmosphere all over the United States, especially in the southwest and western
regions of this nation. That’s one reason why we’re glad to hear about
conservation efforts focused on making sure that the Colorado River retains its
grace and beauty for years to come.

This article published by discusses a
federal project which is currently seeking proposals for effective water
conservation efforts on portions of the Colorado River in multiple states. The
U.S. Bureau of Reclamation is working with public water agencies in Arizona,
Nevada, Colorado and California to fund about $11 million in projects for
Colorado River conservation.
This river has bore the brunt of extreme drought
conditions over the past decade and many of its reservoirs have dropped to
incredibly low levels. Lake Mead, for example, dropped to its lowest levels
this July since the Hoover Dam was installed in 1937. The water provided by the
Colorado River is utilized by municipal water systems which serve up to 40
million people across the United States, making the protection of this river
incredibly important to our country.
Here at Lees
Ferry Fly Fishing
, we’re confident that we’ll be angling around these parts
of Arizona for many, many years to come. Which is good, because we want to
share not only the experience of fishing these waters teeming with fish but
also the splendor and beauty of this isolated setting. Our experienced fishing
guide staff will make sure that you get the most out of your expedition into
the waters of the Colorado.
