This is the second time I've heard about this skeleton. My 4th Deso trip is in two weeks and I would love to surprise the guys with a skeleton sighting. Would anyone mind sharing the location?

Winds of insanity

Just got off an 8 day trip. Flows were 1200ish. Positives were no Mosquitos, big sand bars for camping, freakishly green and clear water. Negatives were slow water, brutal afternoon "winds of insanity", no time for hikes. If you go be prepared to rise early, and row downstream like mad. I would definitely try to get to your intended campsite by lunch time. The winds came up between 11 and noon, and did not abate until sunset. We had a couple days where we were just stopped dead in the water. We intended to camp at chandler, but could not move beyond belknap.

Interesting about 1500 cfs thru Sept. Is this like official info or just hearsay? How would I access this info?

I have a Deso trip in August. I will chat with the reservoir operator soon, and I will report back here. Our website is a decent resource, but sometimes doesn't get updated too often with the very latest information.

I heard that there is a sometimes a bump in the releases for the farmers in mid summer. Any truth to that?
