No, you can run Snag at 800 cfs in a raft (I have heard that some go at 600). Will they release? There is a helluva lot of snow in the Dolores Drainage yet to turn liquid. For example the 6-12 " of snow from last weekend on top of what is still there. So Keep checking! When? Anyone's guess.

Dolores Water

Go to doloresriver.com to check out the water release...... We spoke with them the other day and they said they will be releasing 800-1200 through June 17th...but that can all change daily. The people on the other end of the phone said that as long as the demand for water is less then what is flowing into the lake they will release. As soon as the demand is more then the incoming snow melt then they will turn off the faucet..... I'm going for a June 2nd put-in.....keeping my fingers crossed that I will have something to float on!! ....also bringing the inner tube
Good Luck and hope you can squeeze on a trip before they hold back all the water!
