The twisted frame of a canoe is jammed on the rocks of the Yampa River just past 12th Street. The canoe's owner, John Fielding, and his son were able to swim to shore Thursday evening after the canoe tipped. Fielding said he will wait for the water to recede to safe levels before trying to recover the craft.
