Fontenelle Dam Fishing Update
Fontenelle Reservoir is currently at 83% of full capacity with the pool elevation at 6498.20 feet as of June 20, 2018. Fontenelle Dam is currently releasing 6,000 cubic feet per second (cfs), as of 1:00 p.m. on 6/20/2018.
Significant precipitation above Fontenelle Reservoir is contributing to higher-than-anticipated runoff. The previous notification is being amended to cancel planned reductions in releases that would have otherwise occurred on 06/21/2018 and 06/25/2018.
Releases will remain at 6,000 cfs until further notice.
The current release schedule is subject to observed hydrology and is subject to change.
This notification supersedes all previously issued notifications and is current until a new one is issued. All times identified in this directive are local time (Mountain Daylight Time) and are not hour ending.
