Ouray County, Colorado 81403
Join the Uncompahgre Watershed Partnership and Colorado Parks & Wildlife staff for a volunteer cleanup along the Uncompahgre River at the Pa-Co-Chu-Puk area of the Ridgway State Park on Wednesday, October 21 from 1 to 4 p.m.
Pa-Co-Chu-Puk is Ouray County’s most popular fly fishing location with fantastic trout habitat in the Uncompahgre River below Ridgway Dam and two ponds stocked with Rainbow trout. Staff from local fishing guide services and outfitters will make up our central volunteer crews and we welcome anyone else interested in helping their efforts. Thank you to Montrose Anglers, RIGS Fly Shop & Guide Service, and Telluride Flyfishers for supporting this event.
We will provide bags and buckets for volunteers to use as they pick up fishing line and the various litter left behind by river users. Please join us even if you can’t stay for the full three hours. We will also provide snacks and drinks. Please bring a water bottle, sturdy shoes and work clothes. Masks are required when assembled in a group for instructions and other times when you cannot maintain social distancing of at least six feet. We recommend sunglasses, sunscreen and possibly bug spray.
