Eric Kuhn of CRD said 1100 cfs, not BLM!
Oy! This needs clarification. In an email to permitted outfitters, I said that “someone” at the State of the River meeting had said the river would get above 1000 cfs. That 1000 and 1100 cfs quote came from Eric Kuhn, General Manager of the Colorado River District. He said it during the State of the River address in Granby. Please see the article in the 5/11/2012 edition of the SkyHiDailyNews. The article is called: "Dry" is the word at State of the River.
He says: "Because of reservoir levels, water users should see in June, July and August "fairly decent flows this year in Gore Canyon below Kremmling," Kuhn said, because that section is below reservoirs. "My guess it will come up to about 1,000 (cfs), maybe even 1,100 and stay there. So the rafting and fishing in those streams might be OK."
FYI, the BLM will never know water flows any better than any of you, dear readers. (The release formula is too political for me. ?
I get info from Kara Lamb, who works for the Bureau of Reclamation, who usually posts updates here.
