Depends on the river.
The San Juan: if its dates after mid-April but not part of the high use season lottery than they will be released after March 16th.
Deso: each X will have a number that should correspond to the available permits cancelled or not confirmed from the lottery. Those will be released in March as well.
Selway: Post permit season and self-registration, unlimited availability.
Middle Fork: I believe some of the dates will be X-ed out and unavailable during the spawning season and from cancellations.
