Big South / Long Draw Res update

Long draw operators cut back the flow to 127 cfs today. They expect to keep it at that level through this week and maybe through the weekend. Sometime next week (or maybe this weekend) they could bump it back up to the 150ish level. It won't likely get above 150 from here on out.

So, Big South is done. Bony South may still be in for those who don't need as much water as others.

In more positive news... come on down to bailey fest this weekend to celebrate dam release flows and good times on bailey.

We need to work on a Big South fest for the weekend after Bailey Fest. 300 from Long Draw for two days.

Big South release would be the shit. I wish we could get it so bad... the crazy thing is that long draw is basically full. Water supply Co. also has a certain amount of water that they traded and have to deliver downstream, but they don't want to crank her up even if they have the capacity. Definitely an opportunity out there...
