Big South Flow Update (7/22)

Current flows out of long draw are ~200 cfs. They may back it off 10-20 cfs in the next day or two, and will likely hold that flow through the weekend.

With a significant amount of water still in long draw res, they expect to be releasing in the 175-200 range for much of august. With minimal natural flow, thats low, but it still goes. Still nice to hike in at peterson for the bottom 1/2, especially when almost everything else is done.

Be safe out there.

I think the top is still worth it at this level, although it's a bit of a long day with how slow the scenic class II is.

Saw a rock report post that that the big south rock gauge is at 2 with current long draw flows.

I think the upper 1/2 is still worth it at current levels.
