I can’t help but think that someone just doesn’t want to deal with you.

One of the rangers has a boat at Corn Creek. Simple logic.

LOL. I bet this is exactly it.

Ramp at Corn Cr. is open, but only for people living down there. No other users permitted. :evil:

I see that Corn Creek is open to power boat launching. No restrictions to "locals only."

https://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/fseprd717072.pdf

Float boats are NOT allowed on the Wild & Scenic. No mention of power boats.

We see that the closure has been revised, and that Corn Creek is no longer exempted.

https://www.fs.usda.gov/Internet/FSE_DOCUMENTS/fseprd717072.pdf

In the past I've noticed various "undeveloped" possible launch sites upstream from the Middle Fork. Anybody have other ideas?

2 potential launches I can think of off the top of my head if the ramps are closed. Bank launch about a mile below Cove Creek used by rafters. Bank launch about a mile below Colson Creek.
