The city of Steamboat Springs announced Wednesday afternoon that it will enact a commercial and voluntary closure of the Yampa River beginning at 12:01 a.m. Thursday. The intention of the closure is for the protection of our best resource in the Yampa Valley, which is the river.  According to the Steamboat Pilot, “The river experienced water temperatures greater than 75 degrees Tuesday and Wednesday, which exceeds the threshold for closure as outlined in the city’s Yampa River Management Plan. Low water flows, high water temperatures and low levels of dissolved oxygen can impact aquatic life and are factors when determining...
