Gunnison river expeditions July 11

Over the next few days releases from Crystal Dam will be increased by a total of 800 cfs. Flows in the Gunnison River through the Black Canyon are expected to increase from a gage reading of 1750 cfs to around 2550 cfs by Wednesday, July 13th. Release changes will be done in 200 cfs increments, well below the recommended maximum ramp-up rate of 500 cfs per day, in order to preserve the safety of any potential visitors to the canyon and to provide a smooth flow increase that all fish can enjoy. Fishing through the gorge is excellent right now, the fish are hitting streamers, adult golden stones, yellow sallies, hopper patterns, and are deep nymphing on prince snips.
