Yes now they are admitting to releasing on an ongoing basis they have changed the language yet again:
Today for MF - see my post from a few days ago to compare. Is there a FS person here reading these threads? Would be nice if they could respond and explain what is supposed to be happening and not just go in and keep changing the instructions.
: Declined and/or cancelled launch dates are being reissued as of Feb. 6th; please continue to check this site for cancelled reservations. Cancelled launch dates are released at a random time within 24 hours of submission. Boaters should try to anticipate high and low water levels before reserving a launch date. After March 15th, the Middle Fork will not re-issue cancellations for launch dates of Aug. 15 through Sept. 15. Groups will also be limited to 12 craft per permit for these launch dates
BUT Hells still has the language from a few days ago - this was what was on the MF - bet this changes when whoever reads this!
Hells Cancellations: Beginning March 16th, any declined, unconfirmed or cancelled lottery launch dates will be made available randomly. Please continue to check this site throughout the spring and summer for cancelled reservations. Cancelled launch dates are released at a random time within 24 hours of submission. Boaters should try to anticipate high and low water levels before reserving a launch date.
Back to checking the bloody site.
