So, is this of interest to you guys?

Hi all,

Similar to last year, we have begun to see a slight increase to Ruedi Reservoir inflow in early April, rather than mid-to-late April as in other years. As a result, this evening (April we will increase our release from Ruedi Dam to the lower Fryingpan River. In a couple of hours, we will raise the release from Ruedi by about 40 cfs.

The result will be about 220 cfs by the gage below Ruedi Dam. The current reservoir elevation is around 7721 feet and still creeping down. Our increased release will keep the reservoir dropping, slightly, making room for the snow pack run-off we are anticipating late next month.

I've updated the Ruedi webpage to reflect these changes. Please give it a look and let me know what you think: Ruedi Reservoir, Eastern Colorado Area Office, Great Plains Region, Bureau of Reclamation

We also have an additional snow pack and water level page now available at Current Reservior Content and Snowpack Using Google Maps. Please give that a look as well.
As always, please feel free to contact me with any related questions.

Thank you for your updates Kara, but the lower Fryingpan isn't of any interest to most boaters until it reaches at least 500...800 is preferable...thanks again though.
