Steamboat/Encampment question

Fish Creek/Encampent/North Gate Canyon are all running at lower levels right now than they were on July 4th last year.

Is this becasue it has been cold lately and they are about to go back up? Or are they just going to continue dropping? I thought this was a bigger snow year in this region than last year, what gives?

I will be out there at the end of June and want to know if stuff will still be running. Thanks-

Mostly a warm dry spring. Good run off but close to over. Its been hot, so I would say those runs are done.

Naw, you're still okay on the Encampment. We were up there last weekend (6/10) and there was still lots of snow up high. Once it heats back up this week it'll have a final spurt. You should go up there this weekend, it's an excellent run!

I've done it at a variety of levels and for what it's worth I would say minimum levels for it to still be fun (not just "runnable") would be 400 at the putin and 800 at the takeout. You can still run it at half those levels, but you'll be HATING life on the last 4 miles of gravel bars, seriously! Even at peak those last 4 miles go on forever.
