From email from Reclamation (Kara Lamb):
Tomorrow afternoon (Feb. 16) around 1 p.m., we will bump up our releases from Ruedi Reservoir to the Lower Fryingpan-River by about 25 cfs. This will put approximately 102 cfs at the gage below Ruedi Dam. The reason for the increase this early in the season is due to the current snow pack projections. It is possible we could have a run-off season similar to last year’s. We are moving some water from the reservoir now in anticipation of above-average run-off flows in late spring…be sure to check out our webpages at http://www.usbr.gov/gp/ecao/ruedi.html.
