Projected Flows - Arkansas River

According to the outfitters meeting yesterday, the outlook is optimist for good flows and fun paddling on the Upper Ark this summer. The snow pack in the high basin areas is hanging in there and reservoir levels are healthy. They expect a peak of about 2000-2500 CFS early summer. And then the VFP- Voluntary Flow Program looks solid and will offer 600-700 CFS from July 1- August 15th.
Anyways, looks like a fun year. Of course more snow will help out. Send good vibes to the storm gods.

Is it snowing there now? It's dumping in the front range. We need more snow. I was hoping to get on some big water in the royal gorge this year.

How would you guys project the flows for this coming weekend? We are heading to Colorado from Iowa to raft Browns canyon. I know it is early but it is the only time a couple of my friends could take off work.

Project flows? Runoff hasn't started and it won't this week. It's only running around 3-400... Not worth the drive.

Upper Ark Valley is snowy and frozen with some cold snowy days ahead. Sorry boys, Spring doesn't happen for a few weeks up here...

Browns will be low, I ran it in january 300 ish? with my 14' e series, some getting stuck and slots to narrow to get a raft through, awesome trip!! You will be happier in a kayak or small raft though. I was solo in mine, loaded light. If you would like more water the upper colo is running good. Browns could still be fun, just will be low.
Have fun boatin'!
