Flaming Gorge Dam is currently releasing 1,700 cfs. Releases during the base flow season through September 30, 2016, will be modified regularly to provide for Colorado Pikeminnow flows in Reach 2 of the Green River. Targeted flow levels in Reach 2 will vary between approximately 2,000 cfs to 2,400 cfs. Yampa River flows are decreasing and it is prudent to increase releases to maintain targeted flow levels.
Therefore, Flaming Gorge releases will be increased to 1,800 cfs beginning Tuesday, August 2, 2016, according to the linked schedule
. Releases may be increased or decreased further depending upon Yampa River flows and updated information will be posted.
