Lower North Sait Vrain - When will it Flow?

I think think this is a dam controlled/spill section. Does anyone in the know, know when we will see boatable flows 275/300 or so. Does this get released or spill? If spill, are we getting close and how is the drainage's snow pack? Look forward to it being an after work run.

And a follow up question. When doing this run, I used to put in a mile or so up the dirt road, there is a small pullout on a bend in the road. Is there another put in further up? If so, is the boating decent.

Does this condom make me look fat?

Flow into Buttonrock is about equal to flow out right now. If the reservoir isn't full, it'll be a while. Usually don't get decent flows until it starts flowing over the top of the dam. It's a short window so keep an eye on it.
