October Hole?

So it's namesake is here, but where is the water? Does any one know if the release will happen at all this year? Any info folks might have would be great!

October Hole in non-drought years.... Probably not going to run either.

I dropped by to take a look yesterday. There might be 50cfs coming out of the irrigation canal and very little coming down the river. Some slalom boaters seemed to be enjoying the first drop, but the second is nonexistent. Not sure there's enough water to surf, but maybe.

There are gauges, you just have to do the math. I can post the links to the gauges if anyone is interested. Right now it is about 50cfs with the lake output and river flow.

Being one of the slalom paddlers enjoying it the last two days I can safely say that you cannot really surf it. The slalom is excellent.
