I got some advise from someone who knows that if you want to go go soon cause PG&E has had a major power plant go down so they make up the difference with hydro power and that means letting alot more water out so it is gonna get deep anytime now.

Here is the Dreamflows info

Quoted from Dreamflows BBS.

""Posted: Aug 4, 2008

There's been a change of plan. According to my PG&E contact, the new flow regime is as follows. He writes:

"FYI: Update on Fordyce Flows:
8/1 - 8/11 approximately 35 cfs - Sierra Trek Jeep Jamboree
8/11 - 8/12 approximately 35 cfs - Fish Population Field Study Plan Fordyce Creek
8/13 Increase draft to 150 cfs - Fly channel prior to flow change
8/29 Increase draft to 400 cfs - Fly channel prior to flow change
8/30 Recreation Flow 400 cfs
8/30 - pm decrease flow to 300 cfs
8/31 Recreation Flow 300 cfs
9/1 Decrease draft to 150 cfs"

Comments? Remember: this still isn't cast in stone - more changes are possible, though I suspect The Plan is becoming more solid now.""


See: http://www.dreamflows.com/forums/vie....php?topic=371
for the thread.

So your date for 6 Sept may be fine at 150 CFM.

if it is CFM it is gonna be a trickle
Bet they never reduce that to 150 in Sept. . bet it stays at 400.

Only thing that hurts are the logs being floated in your mouth to keep the trail clean!

It's currently flowing around 150.

How is 150 going to be with a Toy on 36's in relation to the cab floor?

Anyone know or can tell me how to find out if they're planning to increase the flow this weekend? The latest comment is for 9/1.

Thanks
Joe

At 150 you should not get water to the doors. Every rig is a diffrent hight on 36's but you shouldn't get water in the cab. It doesn't say if it is going to change.

Thanks, that's what I thought!
Sure hope they don't do the 400 flow test this weekend after we're on the other side

Quit being a bunch of pussies and just go wheeling. Deal with the water when you get there. It makes it more exciting anyway!

So, how was the water level this week end?
We're going next week end and some of our group are a bit skitterish about real deep water.
The meter reader page here says it's still 150.
regards, as always, jefe
