R/HT levels on 5/15

We have a big family trip planned for this weekend on Ruby/Horsethief and are curious what the flows might be on Monday, 5/15. Considering the Gunnison releases and increasing temps...what do you anticipate the flow to be? Above 20K? Thanks for any predictions or experiences you want to share.

Should be nothing to worry about. Gunnison releases won't really hit until end of next week from what I can tell.
Ruby /HT is still pretty mellow at high water. The Loma ramp gets really small, landing can be a challenge at some camps, and Black Rocks gets swirly and strange. Otherwise it is a nice, fast run.

Doesn't look like NOAA thinks the flows will be above 15k.

Looks like it is flowing at 15900 this morning. Black Rocks gets pretty swirly and wavy at this flow. Some of the camp eddies disappear so set up to hit your camps early. Stay safe and have fun! Give the office a call if you have any questions 970-244-3000.

Question on Ruby H/T Reservations. With the new system on Rec.gov, does your trip need to be on one reservation, or can it be on multiple?
For example, can I book Rattlesnake for a Friday night on one reservation, and book Black Rocks 6 for a Saturday night on a different reservation, or do they need to be booked at the same time? The situation could be due to cancellations coming available, or deciding to extend a trip on the front end.
Thanks.

They can be multiple reservations. You will be charged the administrative fee each time you book a permit though.
