Black Canyon at 1900? Big South beta?

Anyone have any beta on the Black Canyon at 1900 cfs? Out in Colorado until next weekend - old testament says up to 3000 while the new testament says 1500 is high. We've got a strong crew but don't want to go in there exceedingly high. Any plans to step it down before the end of next week?

Also, anyone got a visual on the Big South or any way to gage it - would like to get on it next week.

Thanks for any info!
Josh

Big South is running but is gated. Usually doesn't open until around the 4th of July.

AS A RESULT OF HIGH INFLOWS INTO THE BLUE MESA RESERVOIR...RELEASES FROM THE ASPINALL UNIT WILL INCREASE BY 200 CFS ON FRIDAY. AFTER THIS CHANGE FLOWS IN THE BLACK CANYON OF THE GUNNISON AS WELL AS THE GUNNISON GORGE WILL BE NEAR 2100 CFS. FUTURE RELEASE INCREASES MAY BE NECESSARY...AND INFLOW AND HYDROLOGIC CONDITIONS ARE BEING CLOSELY MONITORED.
