Local officials have closed the North Fork of the South Platte River to recreational uses as recent rains and snowmelt create dangerously high water levels, according to a news release.
The river is closed to tubing, some types of rafting, fishing and swimming until further notice, said the release from the Jeffco Sheriff’s Office.
As of Tuesday, law enforcement is allowing:
• Kayaks and whitewater canoes.
• Multi-chambered professional guided rafts.
