3. This is for David Costlow. All of you on this thread are calling him a liar or that he is exagerating. You should know he is the biggest advocate in Colorado for your right to float and water rights. Before you start calling somebody out you should check his credentials. And buy the way he is not an outfitter.

If you want facts regarding the condition of our state's snowpack, go to the the NRCS's "Basin Outlook Report" for the month of May:
"As we head into the high water demand season, the prospects for improved runoff conditions continue to
diminish. The continuation of dry conditions in April resulted in significant reductions in streamflow forecasts
for the second month in a row. Most of those decreases ranged from 5 to 20 percentage points. The highest
forecasts in the state, which are still calling for less than 50 percent of average volumes, are in the Upper Rio
Grande River basin and in the rivers in the southwest corner of the state. The majority of the state's streams and rivers are expected to produce only 20 to 40 percent of average volumes. The lowest runoff volumes are
expected in northern Colorado, where streamflows are expected to be 15 to 30 percent of average. With much of the meager snowpack already melted we can only hope for abnormally wet conditions for the remainder of this spring and into the summer to alleviate shortages."
