    Wow! I don't think I've ever seen it that low before.

    I guess we know the Bureau of Rec isn't too worried about keeping the redds wet.

    Thanks again Robin for keeping us informed.

    Sad news it is.... lets hope that the storm that has contributed to the pack in the last couple days will help and the powers to be to reconsider. 800cfs will hurt the redds and help the snaggers.
    Live every day like its your last and one day you'll get it right.

    what a difference a year makes. It was 30,000 last year in the spring and we were worried about fish spawning in the parking lot. Gonna be a long summer with the current snowpack...

    Looks like they're going to keep it at 1,100 and not go down to 800 as planned.
