Cuts to Bighorn releases to continue


Seeing snowpack dwindling and inflows dropping, Reclamation will continue gradual decreases to river releases.

Starting this afternoon, releases will drop 500cfs to 5,000cfs. In addition, all releases from the spillway gates will be discontinued and 625cfs will be released through the (cooler) river outlets.

Looks for more cuts to releases in the coming days (and possible over the weekend) barring any unforeseen weather events.

Have wonderful Happy Father’s Day weekend, and don’t forget everyone can fish for free this weekend!
