San Juan flows

Any recent beta on San Juan trips? Have a trip to launch June 10...Is there any educated guesses on predicted flow?

My forecast right now is ranging from 700 to 850cfs for a June 10th put-in (daily average flows). However, since the Animas is starting to decline more quickly, I would say that actual flows in the San Juan will more likely to be at the lower end of that range. Pack light and leave the cast-iron at home!

Susan: Not what the trip wanted to hear. We were hoping with all this cool weather in Western Colorado the runoff would be delayed. But a quick, professional forecast is remarkable. Thank you for staying on the Buzz.
