|(Above) As a result of good snow pack last spring and a lot of summer and autumn rain, Ruedi Reservoir is currently above average storage for this time of year.|
Ruedi Reservoir is now in winter operations. In mid-October, we reduced releases to a winter release of 90 cubic-feet-per second. This is about double our winter release last year.
The last week of October, releases will be decreased to 50 cfs so Colorado Parks & Wildlife can conduct a fish survey of the Fryingpan River below Ruedi Reservoir. The survey will last until October 30. Once it is completed, releases from Ruedi will resume the 90 cfs winter release.
- Weather, reservoir elevation, and other data is available via the Ruedi weather station.
- The USGS page for streamflow below Ruedi Dam provides up-to-date information for water released to the lower Fryingpan in cfs measurements.
- This graphic displays the fill and draw pattern at Ruedi Reservoir over the past five years.
