450cfs is here to stay- at least for a little while longer. The Bureau of Reclamation has notified the public of it’s latest plan to release water from Gray Reef Dam. “Releases from Gray Reef Dam will remain at 450cfs through the end of May and possibly into June. The below-average flows from Gray Reef Dam are due to the higher-than-average reservoir levels at Glendo Reservoir.” ~Media Contact USBR: Michael Fullom
Water level increases from Gray Reef Dam are projected to reach 2600cfs by the end of June- predicated on downstream irrigation needs.
As we wait for more water, we can always exercise best practices concerning our resources. There is still much fun to be had- even with lower than normal water flows. Always be careful when wading and operating watercraft. Follow us on social media for updated information or for further details, please call the Ugly Bug Fly Shop today.
