Upper C / Lower Blue flows

I noticed a bump up in the flows for the Lower Blue and of course the Upper C. My app is showing an estimated flow at least thru the weekend. Anyone know more of the flow plan?
I know the Blue usually has that early fall release, but I'm suspecting the low snowpack has effected decisions on when water will be released.

I heard the water people are also trying to release to control water temp to protect fish as streams are getting to warm.

If it makes the fish happy, then I'm happy.

Green Mountain Reservoir has a facebook page that has information about the flows to the Blue River- https://www.facebook.com/greenmountainreservoir/
If you "follow" the facebook page you will receive the updates in your feed.

From their post yesterday afternoon:
"Green Mountain Dam has increased releases to the Blue River. The Colorado River main stem administration changed to the Grand Valley Irrigation Company Junior Water Right Call.

Green Mountain Reservoir is releasing scheduled contract, HUP replacement, HUP direct delivery, CBT Collection System out-of-priority replacement and reservoir inflow.

The 1935 Green Mountain Reservoir Senior Fill Right is fully curtailed.

Green Mountain Reservoir has increased Blue River releases to 630 cfs in four steps.

All release will be through the powerplant.

A release of 630 cfs will be maintained until further notice"
