Big Thompson, Front Range, CO
I've got an update on the Big Thompson River for you all. I do not know how significant this news is, though, because I don't remember what good kayaking flows are for the Big T.
Because the recent heat has kicked off our runoff season, we will be bumping up releases from Olympus Dam to the Big T to about 250 cfs. This bump up in cfs will occur late tonight, around midnight. All recreators below the dam and around the river should be aware the flow levels will change and be up come the morning of May 24.
So: 250 cfs in the Big T at midnight May 23.
Give me a holler (970/962-4326), or a message, if you have any questions, etc.
Happy spring (and stay safe out there!),
