Flow out of Palisades Dam was increased by 500 cfs early today. Flow coming into the reservoir from Grey’s, Salt, and Snake Rivers increased because of our recent warm weather, so flow out of the dam was adjusted upward to maintain reservoir fill rate.
This flow increase should not impact fishing. Temperature of water coming out of Palisades Dam is still in the high 30s in degrees F., but downstream at Lorenzo is in the mid 40s in same degrees. That means more active fish in the lower river which is good news for fishing.
