Glen Canyon National Recreation Area (GCNRA) and Grand Canyon National Park (GCNP) offer unique recreational opportunities. An objective in the Long-Term Experimental and Management Plan Environmental Impact Statement (LTEMP EIS) is to maintain and improve the quality of recreational experiences (U.S. Department of the Interior, 2016). Some of the higher valued recreational activities include day-use rafting and angling in GCNRA and whitewater rafting in GCNP. The LTEMP EIS identified that Glen Canyon Dam (GCD) operations can affect the experience of day-use rafters and anglers in GCNRA and whitewater rafters in GCNP, including High-Flow Experiments (HFEs) (U.S. Department of the Interior, 2016).
