With this years super low snowpack has runoff already occured in the central part of the state or can we expect flows to rise?

For the most part it has already occurred. There is still enough snow left for one more good bump of water, if we get a few nights in a row that stay above freezing in the alpine soon....otherwise what's left is likely to slowly trickle away, with out much more runoff.

Runoff, or trickle-off, is now and next couple weeks. Low elevation is gone and there is minimal high elevation snow. It's all coming off slow since it really hasn't got hot yet. Get whatever you can and don't wait for it to get better or you will wait till next year.
