The Yampa for example, was higher in 2011 and was at its highest in modern times excepting 1984 (we put on at Deerlodge in June 2011 at nearly 27000 cfs). The Green River at Green River Ut was not only higher in 2011 than 1995, but was also higher than 95 in several years since including 1997, 2005 etc.
Didn't mean to highjack the thread...the subject line just through me off, as it isn't really accurate.
