I will be on the front range a few days this week. I'm up for going in there, though I haven't seen it yet.

Get it while you can, they dropped releases out of Long Draw and with the natural drop it was on the low side of medium yesterday. Spencer Heights was low. Hopefully they crank Long Draw back up so we get a couple more weeks out of it.

Water supply co guys are going to increase long draw flows back up to 200 cfs today. The guy usually gets up there around mid day to make the changes. Plans are to hold her steady around 200 for the next week to 10 days. Plans could change with rain. Might take a couple of changes today to get it lined out today as the res is full and spilling over the spillway.

The extra 50ish cfs will likely barely balance natural runoff decline, and big south will likely stay low until she's gone. Damn gate...

Ran it last night. Paulie apparently chose Bailey over the BS. Long draw was releasing about 200 from my guess of the flow. I would say it was medium ish.I have ran it much lower and much higher. It was 2 and a half marks on the rock lapping the third. Joe wright was low but you could scrape down, water over the carnito boof flake but not enough to boof. Spencers was good. Wood in Fantasy Flight and Melt Down still. That melt down wood was not easy to see. Everything else is clean.

I am sure you all know this already. Just what was going on yesterday.

If I don't work in the afternoon tomorrow I will run an evening run

Thanks for the update Kevin. Was wondering what flows were doing up there.
