so its at 750 now - but would it be iced up I suppose. Is there a schedule of releases somewhere?
Unfortunately we do not have any sort of reliable means of predicting flow in Morrow Point or Crystal Reservoirs, primarily due to the fact that there are so many variables (electricity demand, unexpected runoff, and water supply needs as determined by the BOR). The Bureau of Reclamation (BOR) does not provide any sort of flow predictions to us and therefore we are unable to assure the user of any sort of maximum flow on any given day. You're right, the only flow information we have is the current flow, as provided by http://waterdata.usgs.gov/co/nwis/uv/?site_no=09128000&PARAmeter_cd=00065,00060
Typically the ice will begin to break up on the reservoirs in late March and by mid to late April the majority of the ice should be gone. This is, of course, based solely on typical weather, so be sure to check with us before you head out to save you a headache.
