Heading up to the south platte above 11 mile res. on Thurs March 16th and hoping to catch early spawners.  But the low flow is discouraging (38 cfs for last 10 days at least).

Does anyone know - or know who would know - when they plan to increase the flow back to a reasonable level?

Anyone been up to this area yet?  Any advice?

Looks like they just cranked up the flow yesterday about 10am or so...

She's running at 122CFS now.

The time to go is RIGHT NOW!!!

Full moon, increased flow..... Yowza... I wonder if some planets have lined up.

I'll bet those big girls will be running up there tonight!

From Charlie Meyers in today's Denver Post:

"Big-trout enthusiasts found their prospects buoyed Tuesday morning with a boost in the flow from Spinney Mountain Reservoir to 120 cubic feet per second, triple the previous release. This surge should bring a fresh run of large trout up from Elevenmile Reservoir into the 5-mile stretch of the South Platte River between the two lakes.

This flow should hold for 1 1/2 weeks, then cut back to approximately 70 cfs through the first two weeks of April. The flow then should return to 120 cfs until Aurora Reservoir is filled. "
