Thanks for posting Bill. Bummer about the flows. Hopefully water will get moving again and they can re-open the river section.

This move seems strange as the river in town, Steamboat, has flooded the bike path and caused its closure. Maybe they have turned down the flow out of Stagecoach and the reduced flow hasn't reached town yet.

Must be filling Stagecoach. I know the cooler temps pushed runoff back a bit this year also. The Eagle was slow to start but it's going now!
