Unless I have missed a major development on the Poudre, we are still at the mercy of the rock report Poudre Rock Report | Kayak flows for the Poudre River
or visual reports for the beta on flows.
Water flow can be a combination of natural runoff and releases from the upstream reservoirs. I am having a hard time remembering, but believe the peak flows that you are looking for are later May through June. Snowpack and weather dependent of course.....
