It also lists waters that have been stocked with catchable trout 10 or more inches long. The fishing report can only be as good as input from the field.

The measure limits future water parks to up to 350 cubic feet of water per second. Mountain communities and kayaking outfitters argue that the one-size-fits-all approach wont work because the width and depth of rivers vary so greatly that in some areas it wouldnt produce rapids that would attract visitors. Rep. Diane Hoppe, R-Sterling, said some water parks could use as much water as 3,000 families in a year and said water courts need guidance on which rules to apply.To submit information for the Outdoors page, e-mail outdoors@postindependent.com or fax to 945-4487., a measure which pits a growing tourist draw against the states ability to plan for future water storage
