From Colorado Trout Unlimited (Ty Churchwell):

After three years of raising money, advocating and planning, the largest and most ambitious 5 Rivers TU project to date is complete…

The section of the Animas below 9th street, along Roosa Ave., was determined to be the highest priority, this due to its visibility and proximity to the downtown corridor and the tree assets in peril. Additionally, trout habitat in this section was minimal and in need of improvement. Many of our visiting anglers find this water to be the most convenient for their quick afternoon outings while the family shops.
