Clear Creek is gettin work done!!!!
Just a quick heads up - word around the campfire up here is that they are going to empty Clear Creek this year to work on the gates.
Good news for the Arkansas basin! Last time they did this was in 97, before that it was in the late 80's - 88 or 89' - just think back to the fish kill - when they killed every fish and bug in the ark! It is funny to me to think about how most boaters today do not even know - or seem to care that this happened!
Both years late season flows were much higher and this year will be no different. Word is that they want people to be able to boat/fish on Clear Creek through July - so the they are looking to move the water late season end of July and Aug.
There will be 10 to 12 thousand acre/ft of water that has to be moved to Pubelo. Also with the storage in this basin at over 125% everything is looking good for the new 4 playspots here in bv to be kickin late into Aug.
