Big South Gate and Flow update

Talked to the forest service today. They plan on opening long draw road at noon on friday (tomorrow). Big South season is on!

Talked the the folks that operate long draw res today. Flows are currently 240-250 cfs out of long draw and should stay in that range over the weekend. Long draw is full (amazing for almost august) and is spilling over water coming from the grand ditch. Long draw folks expect that there will be similar flows(maybe 10%) less next weekend. Haven't seen a rock report of what big south levels are this week, but things have been coming down, was high last week, so maybe medium?

Have fun and be safe!

Guessing more like the low side of high, or the high side of medium. I might go in on Sunday I'd the shoulder feels good. It's sore from slinging joists and rafters this week.

Who's paddling it sunday? I'll be in the canyon with no service, but I might check
