Well, they did it tow us again. Take a look at the graph below. After bumping us to 750 for about 10 hours, they shut off the valves (so to speak),and we’re back to a 325 release. The increased flow had definitely affected the river, and honestly shut it down quite a bit last night. Couple that with this precipitous drop in flow, and unfortunately, we may not have the best day today. If the predicted cloud cover makes it, that will definitely help, but the warm temps and sun will definitely heat the water up quickly on the lower West Branch, which will likely push some of our afternoon hatches later on into the evening.
