Gates of Lodore Flows???

I have a Lodore trip launching on the 23rd. What is the chance that we get more water than the 800ish cfs out of the damn. Does anyone have any info on a possible release. Typically when do they increase the flows??

They stated they will start dumping after Yampa peaks. Until then you are stuck with 800

Lodore is good at every level! 800 is boney at Lower Disaster, the bottom of HHM and SOB, but still fun. I did not get a permit this year and envy everyone that did.

I know it will be a great trip no matter what the water level is. Maybe just a little more moving to avoid some rocks at points. If anyone has a link to the predicted flows of the Yampa to pass along that would awesome. I have looked but can't find it. Thanks

800 is not bad

We did a mid March trip, think we were the first down this year. 800 the whole way, not much different than the 1200 that I have done a few times.
As always...Lodore canyon is great any time, any level!!!!
Two 16' rounds, one 16' cat and a few 14' cats with no problems on the whole trip. Have a great time!!!
