Yes, but it at 4010 right now (5000 last night), with a flood advisory from Rico to Dolores. Might still be fun though, or washed out. From the West Fork put-in to town it will be washed out in spots, fun in others. Not sure about Stampede or Stoner.
If you do the West Fork down to town at high flows watch out for the suspension bridge not too far down river from County Rd 32 (I think it is CR 32?). It is the only solid looking bridge with a highway sign visible from the river. The bridge is not too far down from this bridge and you can see it coming. It has metal grates horizontally on the top and I don't even want to think about the mess if a person/boat made contact with it. Go to the right under the bridge. And be prepared to duck!

Wrong gage on EF for Upper Dolores Stoner Stampede section. It should be the Dolores nr Rico instead of the Dolores nr Dolores. West Fork contributes a large amount of water between the two gages.
