Don’t let the Colorado River go down the drain. Let’s protect the Colorado way of life we love for future generations. Outdoor activities like fishing, rafting and camping depend on healthy rivers. Soon, 80% of the Upper Colorado could be diverted to supply Front Range communities, leaving only a trickle behind. Add your voice by signing our online petition asking Denver Water to protect the Fraser River, a major tributary of the upper Colorado. There is an option for including your comments. Sign Now »

Follow our homeless trout's adventures as he leaves his river home and hits Denver's mean streets in search of water. This trout will swim for water! Then sign the petition.
“2- 3 times a month i walk the river looking for trout and other fish that used to be present under every bank and in every calm stretch of water. The last 3 years i have found only three or four fish ... this number was much much higher a decade ago, hundreds and hundreds if not thousands under every bank and in in every edie. i hope we can fight the good fight and the fish will return as the green alge dissipates.”
