The National Park Service will not offer Morrow Point boat tours in June this year. 

Park officials said this winter’s generous snowpack in the upper Gunnison Basin means the Bureau of Reclamation will have to send a lot of water downstream this summer. 

Brant Porter, a Curecanti park ranger, said the water management scenario for the Gunnison River from Blue Mesa to Black Canyon is not compatible for boat tours at the reservoir.
