Dolores

Dolores looks to have a decent snowpack, but it hasn't come up yet or did I miss it? Would like to get over to play Stampede this year, missed it last year. Anybody over thataway have a feel for it? Want to boat it when it comes up? Thx, Leroy.

I'm not over that way but from looking at USGS gauges it is up right now and the snowpack is NOT decent with 77% of normal snowpack at Lizard Head pass Snotel

Just got done with a Stampede session this morn. Nice fun lowish level. Look for 350+ on the Rico guage when Dolores @ Dolores is 1100+

Starts to get real good when Rico is closer to 500.

Hit it in the morning for best flows.

Thanks for the replies. Can't go this weekend. I was thinking of decent compared to CA snowpack! As far as flows go, I remember 700 @ Dol being not too shallow. Although Spampede hole seems to be always shallow, tuck fast! So how do you correlate the Rico gauge w/ Dolores? What is your minimum flow?
