Laramie Canyon Flows? (Lower Laramie)

Looking at getting a trip in on Laramie Canyon, but the AW gauge information is significantly out of date: https://www.americanwhitewater.org/c...etail/id/2463/

The NOAA source gauge isn't any better: DCP Meta Data - Hydrometeorological Automated Data System - National Weather Service

There is another gauge near the takeout, but we don't have a correlation between that and the gauge we know: DCP Meta Data - Hydrometeorological Automated Data System - National Weather Service

Though we do have a nice rough correlation between the takeout gauge and the wheatland #2 outflow: DCP Meta Data - Hydrometeorological Automated Data System - National Weather Service, which I believe should be feeding Laramie or Bluegrass or both. They remain correlated over the past week, which suggests that it's either all going into laramie or they keep the diversion amount constant relative to the instream flow. Right now, #2 is pumping 689 cfs, which should give us runnable flows if it's in the main canyon.

Anyone have any more light to shed on whether the canyon is running or not?

Funny how much information you can get from picking up the phone once in a while.

I just had a very informative call with the Wheatland Irrigation District. As far as they know, all of the outflows from Wheatland #2 are flowing through Laramie Canyon, and nothing is getting diverted through Bluegrass (since it sounds like they can't get anything into the ground in Wheatland yet, so no need to irrigate it). They just upped the flows from #2 to 900 cfs, and it's likely to stay that way through the weekend.
