Property owners offer truce to Colorado rafters

Property owners have declared a temporary truce in a dispute with commercial rafters and will allow commercial rafting on their property this summer. The Jackson-Shaw company, which owns the Wilder on the Taylor fishing reserve, said Friday it is granting the two Taylor River rafting companies, Three Rivers Outfitting and Scenic River Tours, permission to float through its property this summer.

Conflicts between fishermen and commercial rafting on the Taylor River gave rise earlier this year to Colorado House Bill 1188, which died at the end of the legislative session this week.

Lewis Shaw, chairman of the company, says it will take time to work out a permanent agreement and he wanted to give rafters a chance to begin their season.
