Any word on flows for the Dolores below McPhee?

Seemed like it flowed big above the dam all last year & they trickled out less than a 100 CFS below. The dam has got to be up to capacity this year.

Anyone have any contact info, or info on flows for the season?

Try this link. There is data on inflow, outflow, capacity, and max capacity. Other than that call information for the number to Mcphee, then post the number for me
Hope this helps, this river hasnt gone in about 5 years i believe.

Thanks for the link, talked with a woman at Dolores Water Conservancy District. The Dam is 40' low. She said that she could/would not predict a flow below the Dam, but suspects there will be. Keep an eye on the site and the dam elevation. When it reaches 6924', they have to spill. She said they may do it before if it is predicted it will fill.
Their phone # is on the website.

I spoke to a ranger in the Dolores office 2 weeks ago. THey make no promises, but they are optimistic that 1000 cfs will be released through most of May.
