Gunnison Gorge / Black Canyon Flow Forecast Info Through Oct

Just got off the phone with one of the BLM guys out there. They just had a planning meeting and this is what he told me for flow forecast. Of course its always subject to change.

-1280 cfs from now until Sept 20th
-600-800 cfs from Sept 20th til about the beginning of Oct. They are reducing flows to do a fish sampling study.
-1280-1300 cfs from Oct 1 likely though the end of october as they draw down blue mesa reservior.

Nice flows for late season!

Also the BLM guy said that the main guy to contact was Dan Crabtree from the Bureau of Reclamation at 970-248-0652 for these kind of questions.

Anyone know if the fish study will have any impact on anglers?

We are planning a float through Gunny gorge over the weekend of Sept 23 primarily for fishing.
