The Bureau of Reclamation must think that they now have enough room in Palisades Reservoir to “catch” the anticipated runoff. The reservoir is now at 38% and flows just started dropping.
This should greatly improve the fishing in the coming days/weeks. And if everything goes according to plan we should only see high flows during the Spring “Flush” and again for agricultural purposes. By the time fishing starts to get cranking in mid-June things should be just about perfect! Props have to go to the Bureau of Reclamation for some good planning and to Mother Nature for all the snow this winter.
See you soon!
