Big T up for 24 hours
Just a head's up on the Big Thompson River. We'll be passing some of the run-off flows coming into Lake Estes straight to the Big T River.
Around midnight tonight (6/20), releases from Olympus Dam to the Big T will pop up to around 350 cfs. That release will run for about 24 hours. Late during the night of 6/21, we'll bring the releases back down to the normal 125 cfs.
The bump up tonight will put about 475 cfs by Drake for tomorrow. I don't know how that is for kayaking, but thought y'all might want to know in case you need to plan ahead for tomorrow afternoon.
