river levels

I know the Snow fall was less this year but didn't the the powers that be let a out bunch of water early. Now we are facing low levels AGAIN .I usually come out every year but this year most of my friends went east instead coming here . I am again going to leave early if the flow goes below 800. after the 7th of july . I am really disappointed and I may not come back next year .
The people here are fantastic and the business bend over back wards to help .
The management of this river may really need some over haul

Hey Ranchman,

I feel your pain. Send the manager a note about your experience. The person responsible to write to...

It's obvious that you have a comprehensive understanding of the complexities of the water situation here in Colorado. I applaud you for dedicating what must to thousands of hours to research and fact finding. If only the rest of our great state had such compassion and enlightenment regarding our most precious resource. Kudos!

2 years of bad snowpack followed by a spring drought. Keep praying to your river god and see if he updates the site below with better news!
