It is in, but not for long.  Who wants to go this weekend?  Possible side-trips include ELF run on Cle Elum or trip up to little wenatchee/icicle.

It fell something like 800 in the last 10 days.

Speaking of "fear of loss"...anonymous comments from SBA and Hugo...

The Cooper is good down in the 500-600 range, so it will be there until late July. At least I hope so, cus I wont be able to get out there until then.

Hi Leif,

I'll go this weekend.

and admit it --- you are behind SBaL and are just using him to allow us to take part in the fights within in your own split personality.

I *really* want to hit the Cooper this year, but I'd like to catch it at a "good first time level" whatever that may be. 

Presumably it'll be on the higher side this weekend and then taper down from there? Any guesses as to how long the "Cooper Window" will stay open this year?

Having said that - Sunday may be open for me if the levels look right.

1065 inflow. Keep in mind, that it is not the flow of the river, but rather the combine flow of the cle elum and the cooper into the resevoir. It is accurate none the less.

it seems James information was more up-to-date :-).
However, it seems to drop slowly from the 1050cfs level she was at 10am on Friday.
the report says: -1cfs/h (10am on Friday).

I really don't know why people can't understand that lower does not necessarily equal easier.  I have never run Cooper. This weekend looks like a good first time flow to me. I'll be there.

Cooper was low this past weekend.  It was boat abuse and butt bounces, with some piton carnage.  You folks waiting for lower levels...  time is now!

Really?  Mike, what lines were you taking yesterday?  The only spot that was really taking plastic off was the manky ledge just above Voodoo for our crew yesterday.  Everything else was still going well without incident.  I'll admit it wasn't high, but I wouldn't call it quite low yet and out of contention for fun.  More medium low.

low is low, call it good side of low but still low... simple mathematics:
banging rocks in the mank +  riding rock on slides = low 
LOL
for what its worth, BD is low below 4k :)
