Adobe Creek Update?

Anyone have an update on Adobe Creek (Blue Lake) dam repair?
We stopped by there today and it is extremely low.

Talked to a farmer friend of mine who lives near there. He said Fort Lyons canal company who owns the reservoir and water in it stated in their last news letter that they were waiting for the new head gates took arrive before they can complete the project. So they can't store any more water then what is in it now. He said it doesn't look good for adding any additional water this year unless we get monumental rains this summer. So there you go. Doesn't look to promising.

hey gotafish, does this mean more water for Queens', etc.?

Water rights are complicated but I believe it will all depend on how fast the snow melts and how much rain we get. I think they will put water in Queens but how much remains to be seen. I hope we have a good wet summer or we will lose Two Butts and Queens.

Adobie had giant crappie in its day before they lowered it to (dead pool) a ways back. Im sure it will never get the chance to come back to that. Im thankful my sons and I got to fish it a few times just before the end. never caught my 16 incher from there, my sons always wanted to let the little 12 inchers go.
