Lodore June 20th

Putting on in the Green June 20th. Looks like the water level is dropping fast. Anybody heard when/where it might level off?

Word is that once it hits 1600cfs they're going to hold it steady there till further notice. Have a great trip - we launch on the 22nd!

I just found the updated plan - it sounds like the flow is supposed to AVERAGE 1600cfs per day, fluctuating between 800 and 2400 between night and day. Here's the link to their plan...

This is according to Bureau of Reclamation in SLC

"The average daily release after June 13 will remain at 1,600 cfs until further notice. "

Thanks! This will be my first time on the Green. Is 1600 about average?

The most they release is 4650 cfs, very rare, so I think 1600-1800 is average. I maybe wrong. The rocks will be exposed, but you should be ok.

Here is my video at 4650cfs just last weekend. A lot of the rapids are washed out.

anybody have a time table or idea how long it takes the release changes to make it down into the canyon? I launch on the 12th, wondering if we will be running the rapids on 800 cfs or 1600 cfs.

thanks

also good to know to tie up high and tight, or leave some slack, and push boats out late at night rather than wake up on dry beach

You know the river was moving at about 5-6 mph on average at 4650 cfs, I assume that average would drop down. I think it's 80-90 miles from the dam to Lodore (if I am wrong, please correct). So it would take average of 85 miles / 3.5 mph = 24 hours

Does anyone want to venture a guess what the Yampa will be at on the 20th? 7000? 10,000?
