Patience is a virtue. The longer it holds now the longer the season will last. This is more of a factor for those of us who will be rafting in august regardless of flows. Anyway they won't release until the water starts flowing into the resevoirs. They are currently full, and when the snow melts up high we'll get water down here. I am personally hoping they hold onto the water as long as possible.
There is enough water within an hours drive from the Pourde that is running now. We all want to paddle everyday in our own backyards but wiating pays off. Holding Poudre water until June 15th, or even July 1 would make the season last long enough for all of us to justify our new boats. Paddle the Creek, or in Golden, or even in Lyons. By the time the Poudre is running you will really appreciate the greatness of the Poudre.
water get diverted before filter plant on occasion and the north fork comes in at the actual filter plant so the rock reading, which is how I judge everything can sometimes be off, but im sure you can scrape down at 2'
