CURRENT UPDATES AND INFO FROM ZOE

River Update

June 3, 2014

 

I just got off from a conference call with the bureau of reclamation.  Based on current conditions the river flows will begin decreasing this afternoon.  The river is currently flowing at 8320 CFS.  It will be reduced in 500 CFS increments   each day this week until the flow is 6900 CFS.  The water will hold at 6900 for the weekend and then further reductions will begin on Monday June 9th with a flow of 5150 CFS by Thursday June 22.  All of these reductions will take place after 4 PM daily.

 

Barring any unforeseen weather event, it appears that we have seen the last of high water flows.  The BOR has done a good job managing this record breaking water year.  Thanks to a cooperative plan developed with the BOR, Big Horn River Alliance, Friends of the Big Horn River and The TU Magic City Fly Fishers potentially disastrous spring flows were well managed and fishing has been good to excellent.

 

Come and enjoy this spectacular fishery.

A couple of changes at the Absaraka:

I will be discontinuing the 800 number in December.  Now that all people have cell phones with free calling minutes it is an unnecessary expense.  You can reach us at 406-666-2304, and of course via email at absaraka@bhwi.net  In case you aren't aware, cell service from Verizon Wireless is now working in the Valley.

 

 

 

Hope to see you soon

HAPPY HOLIDAYS
