And if ya like Big Thompson Canyon by Loveland...
Our releases to that stretch of river are going up, too. Not such good news for flyfishers, but probably better news for kayakers:
I heard no new information today regarding the state of flow in the Big Thompson River through the canyon. That leaves me to conclude the schedule set yesterday for increasing releases from Olympus Dam up in Estes Park to the river will continue as planned.
That plan was 225 cfs down the canyon from the dam all day today. And, late tonight, around midnight, we'll bump up releases from Oly Dam again by about 100 cfs.
For Friday, anticipate approximately 325 cfs through the Big T canyon.
We are moving water to meet the increasing demands on the Colorado-Big Thompson Project. This heat so early in the season is creating an early rise in demand, as you can imagine.
I'll update you all tomorrow with any changes. I do not know what to expect for the weekend yet, but will share that as soon as I learn.
Please call or e-mail if you have questions or concerns.
