Flaming Gorge "Farmers' Release?"

I've heard a rumor that Flaming Gorge will be releasing 5000+ cfs as a "Farmers' Release" for about a week this summer.

Anyone else heard anything about this and have an idea if / when it's happening?

They do this most every year in early summer. Getting them to tell you when is a challenge. Heck of a lot of fun to run it when it is happening. It's a fast & fun ride down to Little Hole. Driving down to the Dam put-in with those huge discharge tubes blowing out full force is pretty impressive.
