Does anyone know about how the Dolores Conservancy District does it's predictions? I'm trying to plan a float for Slickrock/ Bedrock / Gateway, and I'm wondering how close these predictions are and whether I'm reading them right. I know it's early for the actual schedule, but since the release is in May (soon) I'd like to anticipate time off & whatnot as best I can.
Latest Forecast Plan:
If I'm reading correctly, it appears that releases of about 800 cfs are 'most probable' for May 20th through the 29th. I've kayaked the Snaggletooth section a bunch, but I've never rafted the lower canyons- which is appalling given that I lived in Dgo for 8 years. Since I didn't get an Idaho permit, this is on the top of my list.
Incidentally, the inflow they're calling for is about 3500- that means that the Stoner / Stampede section should be pumping about that time. Delicious.
