From email from Reclamation (Kara Lamb):

We have finally concluded what was a fairly significant run-off season. Inflows to Ruedi have dropped off to normal levels for this time of year, around maybe 210 cfs at night. As a result, we have cut back releases from the dam to the lower Fryingpan. The reductions in releases began the week of July 11 and continued through this past week. Currently, we are releasing about 213 cfs from Ruedi Dam to the ‘Pan. The Rocky Fork is running at about 13 cfs for a total of about 226 cfs past the Ruedi Dam gage. The reservoir elevation is just shy of full–about three feet down from its high elevation of 7766 feet.
