Ark Flows?

Does anyone know if they are going to "turn off" the Ark on August 15, or will the flows stay high enough to do Pine Creek / Numbers through August?

I took a quick look at the gages and see about 300 out of 500 cfs of natural flows below Granite. Worst case, I think you'll see about 300 cfs after the 15th. I have heard that the recreational flow augmentaion program wasn't needed this year, which would lead me to believe that current flows will slowly taper off through August.

It's supposed to be cold and rainy on Friday and Saturday in the Arky Highcountry, which should give a little boost to flows.

Why, ya wana go boating? I'll be in the area this weekend and looking to float granite/numbers or something like that.
