Fontenelle Dam Fishing Report

 

Greetings,

Just when we started to make a plan for next week, we got this info………never a dull moment during runoff time. We’re just happy to have the water.

Here’s the latest Fontenelle Dam Fishing Report;

Due to increased inflow into Fontenelle Reservoir from spring runoff, releases from Fontenelle Dam will be increased from ~1,700 cfs (full powerplant capacity) by use of bypass starting on June 10, 2019 through June 13 to reach a combined powerplant capacity and bypass releases of 4000 cfs. This is according to the following schedule:

This release plan is considered the most likely scenario given the current forecast, is general, and is subject to changing conditions in the weather.

Thanks,

Dale
