Gunnison Recreational flow idea
Probably been talked about before, but...
Its such a shame to see a measly 500 cfs running through the black canyon and the gunny gorge, especially when not a lot is running. I know that they are holding back flows for conservation of water etc, but it would seem to me that if they released 100 cfs lower all week, that they could bump it up on the weekend for a day to 1000 or so. I know the fishermen want it constant, but this seems like something AW or CWWA could help with. Or they could have one release weekend a month and jack up the flow to 2500 cfs or so. I know that there are lots of power and water issues, but it seems a shame to not be able to get some kick ass recreation flows on such a gem.
Could this happen? How would you do it?
