Colorado Water Forecast

Well it is that time of year already when you can start to look forward to better fishing and warmer temps. Colorado has just published their first water supply forecasts for2011 based on the snowpack this year. Things haven’t looked this good since 1997, literally.

Mostly all of the major basins in the state are reporting above average snowfall and with the relatively wet fall that we had, the biologists are optimistic that this will create a more efficient melt and thus provide us with more water come runoff. The reservoir storage is 100% of average across the state with only a few sites reporting below average numbers. If we get anything close to average snowfall over the next several months then 2011 should shape up to be one of best summer water seasons in over a decade. If you would like to read the full report is is available here.
