Ark is going to go up...

Yes it is - they are finally going to let it rip below Twin Lakes.

We will be at 2400+ here in BV tomorrow....

That is all.

All,

Today on the Fry-Ark Project we have started to wrap up exchanges against native inflows. Additionally, we are starting to see run-off inflows increase into Twin Lakes. As a result, we will be ramping up releases from Twin Lakes to Lake Creek over the next 36 hours. The anticipated schedule for increases to releases is as follows:

Today, June 10, 3 p.m.: 270 cfs, bringing total release to about 290 cfs.
At 8 p.m. we will add another 250, bringing the total release to around 540 cfs.
Tomorrow, June 11, at 7 a.m. we will increase a third time by 250 cfs bringing the total release to Lake Creek to 790 cfs.

Depending on run-off conditions, we might add a fourth increase later in the afternoon on June 11. I will keep you posted.

Please let me know if you have any related questions,
Best,
Kara

PS, I just ran the Mighty Milk Run with my 9 year old daughter an hour ago. It was big and wavy fun.

Juicy Sweetness

I just got out of the Royal Gorge about 45 minutes ago. It was good at 1780, but 2500+ will be wonderful. Awesome. I didn't think we were gonna see that much this year. An unexpected surprise.

Thanks for the information Kara.

I bet it will hold through Fibark.

This is nice. I thought they would wait to start releasing until the snowmelt drops off completely...... time to get some peak flows!

Man what a race it used to be. Kinda sad to see it change to a couple timed runs this year (no head to head heats) as the 4 boat heats were amazing to watch... Also going to miss talking shit about who will even make the finals. It will still be fun just a different race.

Marco I think that one and a half may come in this afternoon and we will be missing you up there today buddy !
