From email from Reclamation (Kara Lamb):

With the heat, we saw inflows into Ruedi bump up last night to what they were a couple weeks ago, back around 1300 cfs. With the reservoir nearing full and more snow still to come, we are bumping releases up another 100 cfs today.

As usual, the changes are being made in 50 cfs increments. The first change was at noon. The second change will be in about an hour around 6 p.m. After both changes are complete, there should be about 838 cfs by the Ruedi gage below Ruedi Dam. This includes about 65 cfs coming down the Rocky Fork.
