El Vado at 5%
Just an FYI- El Vado lake is at ~5% capacity, and 12% of last year's level - they drained it last summer. Heron lake is well below 50% capacity, so there's no capacity to refill El Vado. On top of that, snowpack in the watershed is at ~65% of last year so far (as of Jan 17), and last year was a dismal year for runoff.
Sorry to be the bearer of bad news, I love the Chama and had a lot of fun last year, but this year doesn't look very good at all.
They will likely have some weekend releases, but the irrigation releases are going to come from Abique this year, downstream of the wilderness canyon. I'm thinking this year may be the year to do Whiterock canyon, I just need to figure out a shuttle arrangement...
