Upper Blue / Dillon release forecast

This was in the Summit Daily today:
Outflows into the Lower Blue are forecast to peak at 1,100 cfs on June 9. Inflows are forecast to peak at 1,300 cfs on June 9

Given that the graph for the lower blue currently indicates it holding steady at ~100cfs for the past few weeks, they are going to have to really bump things up between now and the 9th if it's going to peak then.


Isn't there still a river wide strainer in the lower blue?

It does look like the flows on the upper blue are up. Good stuff!

What the Summit Daily considers the Lower Blue is actually the Upper Blue to us.

Ahh. That makes more sense. Well, I guess we need to enjoy "upper blue" between now and June 9th.

I have been watching the flow today and it is slowly rising - at 349 right now. I am super excited for June 9th! 1,100 thru the canyon is so fun - of course 1,400 would be more fun!

I am skipping out of work a little early to run it tonight! Any info on downed trees / strainers is much appreciated.

Good to go!

Ran it last night at 600 cfs and it is good to go. Somebody cut the riverwide strainer out by the take out. It looked like quite the job. Thanks.
