Dolores flows

So I just heard that the Dolores might be running over 3,000 right now. The gauge below McPhee still reads 2,000. Anyone know what's going on here? Did my source read the wrong gauge (it's just over 3,000 above McPhee)? I just spoke with the water people and they did not know what would be released over the weekend. Any info would help.

Hi,

The Dolores is at 2,000 below McPhee.

You can check this site for flows: http://www.dwr.state.co.us/SurfaceWater/Default.aspx then use the pull down chart for the Dolores below McPhee. You can also look at the forcasted spill on the Dolores Water Conservancy District's webpage:Dolores Water Conservancy District then go to releases on the left side of the page.

Justyn and others:

What is the story for this weekend? We are putting in on Thurs and running Cahone to Slickrock until Sunday.

We've got rafts and were hoping for 2K; now we're hoping for 1K!

Should we bail or will it go for another week?

Thanks.
