From email from Reclamation (Kara Lamb):

As inflows to Ruedi Reservoir continue to drop off, we continue to match outflow to inflow. As a result, we’ll be decreasing our release at 5 p.m. today [August 8] by 30 cfs.

The resulting release from the dam to the Fryingpan should be about 156 cfs. With the Rocky Fork contributing 6 cfs, flows past the Ruedi gage should be about 162 cfs. The reservoir remains basically full–only about three feet down.
