Denver water turned up the tunnel to 275 cfs today. Flows current 330ish at the grant gauge. Nice late season flows on the north fork.
No word on how long it will last. If we don't get rain, it should stay about where it is. NWS is forecasting potential for rain and wetter weather, and rain could lower demand and cause the tunnel to go down.
Get it while its good!
P.S. Respect the 4 falls landowners. Do not urinate on their property, or in visibility of them. There are bathrooms at the put in in town and at the takeout, please use them. Portage or scout 4 falls quickly and courteously. Move through as quickly and as safely possible. Keep boats out of the road on the side of the trail to allow the landonwer to pass by if they are there. If you see or meet the landowners, be respectful, courteous, and do your best to be good representative of the kayaking community. Don't argue regardless of the topic. Pick up trash if you see it and keep the place clean.
Also, please use the put in at McGraw park in the town of bailey. The rawhide / old farmers union folks have asked us not to use the driveway next to the culvert bridge that was the standard put in for several years. Please respect their wishes.
Good relationships with landowners is key to continued access to Bailey.
