What's going on with the Gunny?

Referring to the gauge at the Gunnison Tunnel, aka Black Canyon/Gunny Gorge.

Flows jumped from 321 to ~420 yesterday, then dropped to ~250 today.

Back to 321 now.

Anyone know why?

Just messing with the plumbing?

Ran the Gunny Gorge at 321 a few weeks ago and it was it's own kind of fun, plus great fishing. But hoping to go higher yet this fall if the flows come back up.

Any info appreciated.

I suspect the water users are doing some work on the tunnel before east portal road is closed. Latest flow rumors I heard was staying around 300 cfs rest of the year. Haven't heard any rumors about increased flows this fall or winter.

Thanks for the info.

Is there any sort of reliable way to find out what their plans are for the tunnel flows, or are we pretty much at the mercy of following the gauge and trying to guess why?

I'd call or email bureau of reclamation office in grand junction. Their website sometimes gives an indication of flow changes though they seem to update more in the spring. Look under water operations, western Colorado, aspinall unit.
