O-Hole is crankin

Just a heads up. It is crankin and you can loop it up in there now. They shut off the flow off on Oct 31. I don't know if they will maintain this flow for a while or not. There also has been a group doing slalom races on there on Saturday if you are interested.

Look at the reading for the October hole. There is a diversion that comes in below the A-hole.

It's diverted AND returned below A-hole.

Huh? Returned? I believe it's sent from Carter Lake which is fed by the Big Thompson.

You said there is a diversion that comes in after A-hole. I took that to mean, water was being added. There are 2 spillways that diversion uses, and they are both between A-hole and O-hole. My point was water was taken out as well as returned. Not returned in full. We are on the same page.

I was always under the impression all the St. Vrain gauges were junk anyways.

Ah, gotcha. I too wonder what the calculation is on Eddyflower for the October hole. I think the gauges themselves are accurate on the Saint Vrain creeks but the Eddyflower calculations are often just estimates. There is no gauge near the section of SSV that everybody runs and there is no gauge below Button rock on NSV. Therefore you're stuck with gauges further upstream of SSV, below the confluence in town, and NSV above Button rock to try to figure out what's going on in the other sections.

OK guys, now you are even getting me confused.

If Arn says the O hole is crankin, you can take it to the bank. Not only does he live in Lyons but he is the genius behind the entire Lyons water park scheme. The A hole is actually the Arn hole. He designed, created the financing and oversaw the construction of the October Hole.

The Eddyflower guage reads the flow thru the St. Vrain feeder supply canal which does come out of Carter Res. which is filled by the Alva B Adams tunnel coming from Grand Lake. This water is dumped into the St. Vrain about 25 yards above the O hole and then 150 yards later taken right back out again by the dam just below the feature. It creates a wonderful play wave and excellent squirt lines when all else is dead.

Thank god for Arn and the O hole.

Regardless of where the water comes or goes, the hole was great tonight. Lots of water--only my lack of talent was limiting. Get up and get into O-hole before it's gone. A worthy trip.
