Flow out of Palisades Dam was reduced yesterday to 887 cfs. That’s right around the winter maintenance flow of 900 cfs. Flow at Heise is 1400 cfs. Flow going into Palisades Reservoir is close to 3000 cfs, so storage for 2016 irrigation season has begun. Let’s hope there will be water in abundance for users and recreationists alike in 2016.
It’s great weather for encountering migrating brown trout, and it looks like that will be the case for the next several day. Dress warmly, keep your favorite streamer patterns handy, and wade carefully!
