A half-day float trip on the Gunnison River ended with a lunch and silent auction at Confluence Park in Delta Saturday. The weather was ideal for the 13th annual River Awareness Float Trip hosted by Gunnison Gorge Anglers - Trout Unlimited and the NFRIA/Conservation Center. Participants had the opportunity to pass through a previously inaccessible stretch of river between Austin and Delta. Reconstruction of the Hartland Diversion Dam has improved habitat for sensitive fish species and enhanced recreational opportunities on the Gunnison.
