Arkansas flows labor day weekend

Wondering if anyone knows whether the flows on the Arkansas will hold at their current levels thru labor day weekend. Trying to schedule a final weekend on the water and hoping to avoid pumphouse.

Seems we're down to around low 500's. Right after 8/15 vfp water was done and dropped. According to a local fly fishing shop that seems to be the desire for the rec purposes. I suspect it will hold based at these levels due to that conversation. Don't know of any plans to release any extra water for the holiday weekend. Hit me with a pm if you're boating in my neck of the woods. I primarily run class III so not at a skill level for Gorge/Numbers.

Flows should remain the same. There is no release at the moment, all the water is native. There is still excess water to be moved, but don't expect to see it bumped until November or later...and yes, they shut it off for the fishery.
