08 Runoff and Snow Pack

June 4th, 2008

Here it is the 4th day of June and runoff is well under way.

Racehorse Creek Snow Pillow Figure It started about 2 weeks ago when precipitation stated falling in the foothills and the mountains in various forms. This kick started the snow melt. At various areas in the mountains the snow pillow readings were above average. In other areas we were just on average. At the least, the snow pack was equivalent with last year. If we get a slow melt and hopefully water conditions will stay up for the duration of the summer and we won’t see any indication of low water conditions or warm water conditions that can effect the native cutthroats. Hopefully the water levels stabilize and we have clear conditions for opening day on June 16th.
