Just a quick word on the water from The Forks! The creeks are dry, but so is the ground so substantial rain could bring the creeks in quickly for shorter periods. There is no snow pack left anywhere in the area. The first Dead river release has been canceled and water is highly restricted on the Kennebec. As of now the Kennebec is running fish flow all day every day except for the following dates:
4800 CFS 10-12 (2 hours only):
Saturday April 14th
Thursday April 19th
Saturday April 21st and Sunday April 22nd
Saturday April 28th and Sunday April 29th
Flows will be restricted to 4 days per week in May, and run in the 4400 – 4800 range. A letter sent to area outfitters stated that if conditions continue without rain the situation might have to be considered an “Emergency” which would further restrict flows regardless of the contract with commercial outfitters. Let’s hope things don’t get this dismal! Get out there and do some rain dances!
LET IT RAIN!!!
