From email from Reclamation (Kara Lamb):

Several of you have been calling, so I thought it best to let everyone know that it looks like releases from Ruedi will stay up and the Fryingpan flows will remain around 500 cfs for the time being. After the inspection up on the Colorado River at Shoshone last week, the Fish and Wildlife Service maintained their call for their contracted Ruedi water for the Upper Colorado River Endangered Fish Recovery Program. Flows in the Colorado remain lower than anticipated there. Contracted water from Ruedi is being used to help boost those flows.

Ms. Lamb is also pointing to the website for the reservoir operations.
