Conditions : South Fork: 22400 cfs is currently flowing out of Palisades Dam. No wonder the river below looks like a milk shake! Fish likely cannot even see San Juan worm patterns as they go whizzing by in the watery gloom. Go somewhere else to fish for now.

Here’s an overview of South Fork run-off situation.

Flow out of Jackson Lake is up to 6500 cfs and Buffalo Fork, Hoback, Grey’s and Salt Rivers are running high making inflow to Palisades about 41000 cfs. Currently Palisades Res. is 70% full and Jackson Lake is about 87% full, not leaving enough room in both reservoirs to catch projected run-off. Thus inflow to Palisades is about double outflow with run-off peaks yet to be reached. In the near future release profiles from both reservoirs will depend on run-off forecasts and flood control requirements. We will keep on top of this South Fork run-off situation and report here how it looks for the river to come into good fishing condition.
