Rio Chama water release in late September

Hey boaters,
This year water from El Vado Dam will be released through September. My wife and I were hoping to boat the last weekend of this month. The problem is that the last day of September (30th) lands on a Friday.
Does anyone know if they will continue to release though the weekend or do they turn it off on October 1st?
Is there a number I could call to find out release information besides going through the Bureau of Reclamation? I called El Vado Campground and they said they had no idea.

Thanks boater from ABQ. I called the BLM and they said no less than 500 cfs for the entire month of September (currently at 483, but close to 500). He did not have any info about October. I think that we will pass on the trip to avoid getting stranded out there. Thanks and if anyone knows any more beta please share.
