Saturday marks the beginning of a new season of recreation

McPhee Reservoir opens, trails are dry, and the upper Dolores River is rising
McPhee Reservoir will open this weekend. Motorized and trailered boats must enter through the boat inspection station at the McPhee boat ramp. The House Creek boat ramp and inspection station will open May 1.
Doc’s Marina also will open this weekend for the boating season.
Boaters enjoy fishing on McPhee Reservoir. The lake was opened two weeks early this year to accommodate fishermen.
There will be no whitewater release for the Dolores River below McPhee dam this year. However, the upper Dolores River has rafting flows every year from Rico to Dolores in spring and early summer.
The McPhee Overlook trail will reopen April 15 from Dolores to May Canyon. The rest of the trail will open May 1.
Reilly, a springer spaniel belonging to Sharon Crostich retrieves a ball as a dog show judge, Phil Schmidt, paddles his kayak during a Dolores River Festival.
Launching motorized or trailered boats is not allowed at Sage Hen. Last year, the Montezuma County Board of Commissioners closed the road to prevent unauthorized launches, but this year, it will remain open on a trial basis.
