Alert:
...One more significant rise along the Wind, Snake, Green, 
and North Fork Shoshone Rivers middle to late next week... 
Snow water equivalents (SWEs) at the 9,000 to 10,000 foot elevation 
are dropping at rate 1.0 to 1.2 inches day--for the past 2 days. 
9,000 foot elevation afternoon temperatures are forecasted to be in 
the lower to middle 60s Thursday through Monday of next week. Morning 
low temperatures at 9,000 feet look to be near or above the frost 
temperature of 37F Friday. through Monday. Snowmelt runoff will again 
significantly increase Saturday through Tuesday. 
Daily mountain afternoon showers are expected Thursday through Wednesday 
of next week.  Showers are expected to be more numerous with 
possible heavy rain on Tuesday and Wednesday. Rainfall runoff coupled 
with snowmelt runoff will cause another significant rise along 
mountain creeks and streams Tuesday through Thursday of next 
week. Larger rivers like  Wind, Snake, Green, and the 
North Fork of the Shoshone will also see significant rises 
by the end of next week. 
Snow levels remain above 9,500 feet through Wednesday of next week-- 
dropping down to around 8,500 to 9,000 feet by Thursday and Friday 
of next week. 
Remember, with mountain streams during an active and increasing 
snowmelt runoff cycle, the highest flows will be in the late 
afternoon to evening hours. Do not attempt to make any creek crossings 
during that time as the power of the rushing water will overwhelm you.

Hello,

below is an update on the Bureau of Reclamation’s water operations in the upper Snake River watershed.

(Monday June 10, 2019)

Subject:  2019 Upper Snake River Operations Update

Purpose:  The purpose of these Operation Updates is to provide information regarding Reclamation’s operations as the season progresses.  The operations outlined in this update are based on the best data available at the time and are subject to change as new information becomes available.  For additional information and resources, please visit our website at:  https://www.usbr.gov/pn/hydromet/uppersnake/ .

Upcoming discharge changes

 

Jackson Lake Dam

·        Current discharge = 2,000 cfs.

·       Monday morning (6/10) discharge will increase to 3,000 cfs.

·       Monday afternoon (6/10) discharge will increase to 4,000 cfs.

Palisades Dam

·        Current discharge = 9,000 cfs.

·       Monday afternoon (6/10) at 1 pm discharge will increase to 10,500 cfs.

·       Monday afternoon (6/10) at 3 pm discharge will increase to 12,000 cfs.

Summary

The Upper Snake reservoir system is currently 93% full (3,746,699 acre-feet out of 4,045,695 acre-feet).  Flow changes from Jackson Lake and Palisades Reservoir are being made today to continue to track along flood control requirements.  Additional discharge changes could be made in the coming days at Jackson Lake and Palisades Reservoir and will depend on inflow forecasts and storage in the reservoirs.  The reservoirs are targeted to fill in late June.

 

Reservoir levels, reservoir discharge and river flows can be monitored on the USBR Hydromet page here: https://www.usbr.gov/pn/hydromet/

Snake River Jackson Hole WY Fishing Report

Snake River Jackson Hole WY Fishing Report

Here’s the latest Snake River Jackson Hole WY Fishing Report;

Hello,

below is an update on the Bureau of Reclamation’s water operations in the upper Snake River watershed.

(Friday June 7, 2019)

Subject:  2019 Upper Snake River Operations Update

Purpose:  The purpose of these Operation Updates is to provide information regarding Reclamation’s operations as the season progresses.  The operations outlined in this update are based on the best data available at the time and are subject to change as new information becomes available.  For additional information and resources, please visit our website at:  https://www.usbr.gov/pn/hydromet/uppersnake/ .

Summary

The Upper Snake reservoir system is currently 90% full (3,647,015 acre-feet out of 4,045,695 acre-feet).

Warm temperatures over the last few days accompanied by precipitation today in the Snake River headwaters are leading to increased inflow over the weekend.  Inflows are forecasted to recede through the first part of next week with some precipitation arriving late next week potentially increasing inflows somewhat next weekend.  Inflow forecasts and flood control requirements will determine what flow changes at Jackson Lake and Palisades Reservoir are made next week.  Jackson Lake and Palisades Reservoir continue to track their flood control requirements with the target of refilling the reservoirs in late June.  American Falls Reservoir is currently drafting by approximately 2,700 cfs.  Potential increases from Palisades Dam next week are not likely to keep American Falls Reservoir full as irrigation demand continues to increase, therefore the likelihood of spilling excess water past Milner Dam in the short term is very low.

 

Jackson Lake’s discharge is currently 2,000 cfs.  Discharge may increase next week and will depend on inflow forecasts and flood control targets.
