Black Canyon flows?

Planning on a trip through the Black this weekend and the flows have dropped from 1230 cfs to 890 cfs in a few hours today. Anyone with their finger on the pulse for the Bureau's release plans? Have they finished dumping from the reservoir? Thanks!

Not sure on the dam's plans, but we had a flow of 860ish when we ran it over Labor Day. If the flow holds, you'll be fine.

I called and noone knows when exactly the dam will release again. There is a approx.2 day concrete project on blue mesa so the water was dropped and is coming through the diversion tunnel currently. Their plan is to ramp it up they just didnt know if that is today,tomorrow, or monday. Depends on when the maintenance actually started, which the Bureau of reclamation doesnt know.
