Bailey's Canyon Questions

When does Bailey's run? And how can I tell if it is running? Perhaps check this msg board, or is there a gauge that can be used?
I understand that they divert water that makes Bailey's run, so I'm not sure whether I can depend upon running it with snow melt this spring?

Deepsouth is in contact with Denver Water and usually has a thread going all season regarding releases. Here is last season's thread for reference info:

2012 NFSP / Roberts Tunnel Flows

the gauge to watch in the off-season is Grant: Detail Graph
but during the Summer they turn on the gauge at Bailey: Detail Graph

generally it runs in hot, dry periods of Summer and Fall depending on the needs of Denver Water.

Lmeyers is correct.

Bailey typically runs on diverted water coming out of the roberts tunnel. Tunnel plus natural flow will put the river in the runnable zone. We may get lucky and get some early season bailey runs if they turn on the tunnel. Otherwise peak and after peak runoff is the typical time bailey is in (June, July, Aug).

Check out Bailey Fest for an awesome weekend of Bailey Fun August 9-11 this year.
