If it's running I'm headed out from Denver Mon/Tues. Keep us posted on the flow.

Lacking a visual, is anyone into wild speculation? Temperatures have stayed fairly warm through the week, it's going to get to 80 tomorrow, but the Gunnison has only risen very moderately throughout the week. I'm guessing it's running, but pretty low?

I am into wild speculation. Here's what I got:

The difference between yesterday's peaks on the Gunnision at Delta and Grand Junction was 600 cfs. Escalante is one of the larger tribs in this section, maybe 200+ cfs. But remember that this peak is snowmelt from the day before yesterday.

The Columbine snotel site (9400 feet on the Uncompagre Plateau) still has 10 inches of water and it only got down to 36 degrees last night. Should be warmer today, tonight and tomorrow.

All the other gauges on the west slope have been slowly rising with less of a fall last night with the warmer temps.

Ian will probably chime in with his R-squared regression pretty soon here. guess is low side of medium for this weekend, which is better than not boating in my book, so we are planning on heading out early tomorrow morning barring a really bad report. Still, a visual would be nice...

The fin was sticking out about 6" at 5:15pm. I talked to some boaters camping there who said earlier in the day the fin was barely sticking out. So maybe flows are higher in the am.

I'd attach a pic of the fin, but can't do attachments from phones on this site.
