June 15 - Flows were scheduled to be down to 500 cfs by this afternoon - however looking at the gage it's dropping and is 1600 cfs as of 2 pm today. I'll check again later this evening. Hopefully I can get out to the river on Tuesday for a bit to check things out.

The 3 day ramp down of the spring release is scheduled to start tomorrow at 9 am and the flows should be at 500 cfs by the Saturday afternoon according to Navajo Operations.

From Navajo Operations: The Bureau of Reclamation has scheduled this year's maintenance release from Navajo Reservoir. Reclamation will begin to increase the release on Monday, June 3rd, 2019 at 2:00 AM. The ramp-up to 5,000 cubic feet per second (cfs) will take between 5 and 7 days, as increases will be made based on river conditions and coordination with local agencies. The release is scheduled to remain at 5,000 cfs for a minimum of 5 days.  An additional day or more of peak may be added if conditions allow.  If an additional day at 5,000 cfs is added, a notice will be sent out as soon as possible. The ramp-down will occur over 3 days, reaching 500 cfs where it will remain until further notice.

Flows are at 413 cfs and the water remains off murky. Several of my customers have reported some moderate success on some decent fish from Texas Hole on up using annelid (wiggle-lid was a favorite) and larger midge patterns (Tav Mac & Big Mac). I was talking to guide John Tavenner and he said the water up in the lake was looking better so hopefully things will start to clear up soon in the river.

We've added a great new foam hopper pattern to our inventory - these should be awesome along the river banks just about the time the flows are dropped back down after the flush. Check it out below.
