Last week I submitted a weather change ticket requesting a warming trend for Colorado start today at 08:00 MDT. This should help get a little more water in the rivers for this weekend to get the runoff season started, and by next weekend things should be ripping pretty well.
It looks like they got the message, here's the forecast for the Colorado River at Dotsero
I'm old school and look at this whole "May boating" thing the same way I think of Thanksgiving as a ski holiday. It's just way too early and if you're enjoying massive runoff then it's a fluke of the weather (or climate change) causing premature meltout.
Regarding flows dropping on the Ark, that appears to be decreases in the flow from the reservoirs judging by the way the hydrographs step down each day. I can only submit weather change tickets, if you want to change dam releases in Colorado, you'll have to appeal to a higher power than anything I've got influence with.
You're welcome for the warming trend, beers and serviceable river gear will be greatly appreciated,
