Is lake creek running?

I know water is coming out of Twin Lakes into the ARk.

I was surfing around some reservoir sites and found this

Current Data for Twin Lakes Reservoir, CO

Shows 343 cfs into twin lakes and 421 out of twin lakes. I assume that is coming through the tunnel.

Where is the gate to indy pass? It is above the run, I assume.

Ice can't last too long at that flow.

The gate is above the put-in. So, if the levels are good and ice and wood aren't problems, then you can run it before the pass opens. I've no beta on current conditions though.

That whole area is pretty well socked in with snow and cold temps, so ice is a strong possibility. Just Saturday, passing by Twin Lakes at 9am, the temp was 21 degrees.

Current temp at 11:30 pm is 23 degrees.......

I doubt she is runnin and if it is there will be a bunch of ice/snow..

From what I see there is not much water commin through the tunnel 8-12 cfs.. They usually start pumpin about 2-3 rd week of April..

The snow up in that entire area is super deep.. They have the road plowed at least to the south fork turn off..

What guage are you looking at? Right now all my bookmarks are at 0 for the lower stuff..

Its a gauge I've never seen before. The Twin lake gauge claims inflow of 3 hundred something, or it did on sunday. click on the link in the opening post.

I can't even walk around without crutches yet, but figured someone might be interested.
