Looks like 3-4 going so far. The flows are dropping fast. Leaving Salt Lake between 7-8 Wed morning.

Fun today but kind of low. Probably going to be too low within a couple days.

Its held above 300 on the Huntington power plant gauge; in fact it just bumped up to 350.
http://www.ewcd.org/canals/huntington-drainage-teacups/
And Joes valley is bumping a bit to 370; 300+ is a still a very good level there.
Would also like to get on the upper upper Provo; maybe Sunday. Still thinking Saturday for LFH.

LFH was pretty scrapy today, needed some more water to make it the quality run that it is. Not sure why, but the gauges are deceiving. Earlier this year when the gauge was reading about the same, there was more water in there, even with taking into account Electric lake.

Well, for future reference, there is 151cfs out of the upper 4 reservoirs today. Sounds like a boney level from what you guys are saying. If another 75 is added in tribs throughout LFH, thats ~225 at the bottom; adding Electric lake puts 277 in the Main Huntington- top slides.
9 miles downstream at the power plant has 350 (plus 17 for the diversions I think).

"Huntington below Power Plant" minus "Electric Lake outflow" doesn't sound like the best indicator right now, because that is 350 - 57= 293.
The run description says 250+ is the recommended level; maybe that is for adding the top 4 outflows.(?)

I may have to weld up my old boat for this :-); I'd still be up for giving this a shot on Saturday if anyone else is.

The Logan on Saturday is another option; its a prime level. Monolith felt pushy yesterday.

50 50 right now, but if I head down there, I'd leave Riverdale around 8AM (3 hours to Miller Flat, set shuttle, put on at noon, take off 4 or 5) ; probably head to the upper Provo Saturday evening (could return via SLC), then run the Foo Foo slides into part of upper Provo falls, and lower 2nd Box.
I know that is alot of driving and it would probably make more sense to do Cottonwood on Sunday.
I may actually help some friends on Saturday, and head for upper Provo on Sunday.

I'd be up for the Logan but I probably wouldn't be able to do it until 11 I'm also interested in doing scrambled eggs if anyone wants to do that.

The upper LFH 4 reservoir outflows are down to ~70 cfs; it sounds too low for me.
upper Provo Sunday sounds good.
