"South Fork flows are expected to remain at these levels into August, which will also benefit river rafters and kayakers," said Brian Sauer, Water Operations Manager. "These are typical summertime flows, starting a little later than some years due to last year's drought."
Despite the warming weather, water temperatures are still very cold in local streams so precautions should be taken when entering the water, said Sauer. The increased flows will not adversely impact the available water supply for the irrigation season this year.
Current water storage in the Boise River reservoirs is about 96 percent of capacity. Anderson Ranch Dam is about 28 miles northeast of Mountain Home, Idaho.
