Flows to be "0" cfs Wednesday

Post by Jimbo Roberts » Sun Jun 10, 2018 11:05 am

I would recommend that no one fish on Wednesday June 13th.
GBRA and the CORE are going to do their annual inspection of the internal gate in the dam. They will cut the flows to "0" cfs to do this.
It couldn't be at a worse time of year being the water and air temps are so warm. I guess it will speed up the almost inevitable loss of Trout this summer. I sure wish they would do this during the winter when water and air temps are still suitable for Trout survival.

I couldn’t agree more Jimbo!
Anything we can do to “protest”? The flows are already only 51-52!
But I imagine the wheels are already in motion. :(

How long do they typically keep the flows at 0? In other words, how will this affect the river downstream? Any chance trout will survive upstream of Whitewater?
