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.
