Ten new kiosks and a public fishing area map have been developed through a Fishing is Fun Grant with the Colorado Department of Wildlife. 

The kiosks are located alongside County Road 8 noting areas along the White River that are accessible to the public. These were installed to inform the public and to help avoid trespassing onto private property. The maps also include information about fish species and how to download the map to your phone. Signage along the river’s edge marks the boundary between private and public property.

Paper maps are available from the Meeker Chamber of Commerce at 710 Market St.

This project was a collaboration between Colorado Parks and Wildlife, White River National Forest Blanco Ranger District, Bureau of Land Management, Ripple Creek Lodge, Rio Blanco County and the Meeker Chamber of Commerce. The kiosks were built by Cogswell Enterprises, and the maps were created by Map the Xperience.
