looks like the Roaring Fork and Gunnison are both still up about 200 from the storm, so it will probably drop a bit- unless they got enough snow up there and it melts. I hope it either goes up a bit or drops off to the 3's by our launch on Thurs. Better play at those levels.

Westwater runs all year, so it depends on what you mean by keeping flow up. Slightly higher? yes. Causing it to be runnable? no.

The play on Westwater is best anywhere below 6,000, and 2,500-3,500 is sick for Bowling Alley. In other words, don't hope that storms bring it up. It's better play low. 10,000 is the rowdiest I've ever seen it, and 16,000 was the most boring that I have ever seen it.
