JV's elevation dropped to 6965' in May 2005 before it began to fill. JV today is 6961'. I attached the elevation graph for 2005.
If you compare the graphs for 2005 of SR flow and JV elevation, there was a peak in the flow before and after the reservoir filled.
You can see in, out, and elevation for JV here:
JOES VLY RES
NOAA's forecast is for the reservoir to only drop a little more.
