    point bar, salida co.

    I stayed at point bar this year in salida for a couple days. it was pretty tough getting in, had to use the howard entrance . Brutal on a 4 door F350 long bed. Don't take a long truck in there if you like your paint. the campground seemed the same as the last time I was there. I have not been there in 10 years. this year I was informed dredge and highbanker permits are no longer being issued for point bar. and its pans only for the future. I believe the rafting and fishing guides on the Arkansas probably had something to do with it. we were the only diggers there. and we got pretty dirty looks from everybody floating past. lol. thank goodness it was not our destination. but as always down on the bar, there was black sand everywhere and flour gold in all of it. every scoop has plenty of colors. but its super fine, sure would take a lot of it to amount to anything.

    The rafting season ends 8/15 when they drastically reduce releases from the reservoir upstream of there. Lower water and no rafters means itís serious digging season!!!
