Last year it ran really well in October for two weeks. The only reason it ran well then was due to construction up on the dam, or culverts in Estes..

I think 150 200 is still low. It ran 400 - 600 in October and it seemed pretty good in that area...

It is up right now... They stopped diverting a lot of the water to Horestooth, so I can see the level as I drive to work. The web site (MTN Buzz) says it is at 50cfs, but it looks a little better than that from the road.

Keep your eye on it. It usually comes up earlier than other runs. It will run for about a month before they shut it off. I thnk mid may to mid June is when it goes. I will run it when it is above 250 cfs
