I spoke with the BLM office yesterday as we're planning to be on the water from A down to Swinging Bridge this weekend too; he gave me the follwoing schedule for release.
5/23 - 6600 (actual has been 7750cfs today)
5/26 - 4600
5/27 - 4200
5/28 - 3900
after that they'll drop it 350cfs each day until 6/4 when it reaches 1500cfs for the season.
note that at the put in, the 7750 increased the gage by 4ft...so wading may be a challenge at little hole.
according to the Forest Service lady, Taylor Flats brige is unpassable at 4500cfs...so play it safe and pray that this didn't wreck the cicada hatch.
As far as dripping springs goes, I woudln't spend more than 2hrs of sunlight in that place in my opinion. It's in a convenient location and works really well if you just need a place to crash, but the burnt surroundings are a bit depressing.
