Snake River Faces Overcrowding Issue

BYINGTON, Idaho (AP) — The Bureau of Land Management is considering what to do about reports of overcrowding on the South Fork of the Snake River.

The Post Register reports the Upper Snake Field Office of the BLM will be holding a series of focus groups and gathering input in other ways during a 30-day public comment period. Proposed solutions include limiting the number of people who float the river, limiting boat access, limiting outfitter use and requiring campsite reservations.
