Anyone Know when the ARK stops flowing

Just wondering when the ARK stops flowing. How long after they shut off the water does the flow go down. Planning a trip next week.

So you guys are telling me that if I come up to Salida from Aug 14 thru 24 for a class, that I won't get any paddling in?!?!? Should I leave my boat at home?

Paddling after August 15

The flows stop running after August 15.

But, when I made a similar inquiry to the folks at Arkansas Headwaters State Park they thought that there would still be 400-500 cfs. I agree that that is low. However the Numbers and Pine Creek and the Gorge are still doable. At 400 I will paddle it in a minute and enjoy myself. If it is nearer 200 then we have a different story.

At 400 the question is do you chose to run at that level rather than can you run at that level. Chris Kelly

The steps in browns will be bony below 700. Not much play at that level, Zoom will be more technical lots of S turns.

it blows my mind to hear talk about 700 minimums on the ark. i have rafted browns in a 12' at 325 and parkdale on down to 250. sure it is a little boat abuse but with some good planned low siding things are just fine, and the fishing kicks ass. guess it just matters how bad you are fiending.

That works for me. I don't care how much my boat drags, just as long as it's runnable.

Thanks
