Glenns Ferry Run Information

Three Island Park will be open March 13.  They will not open a day earlier.  I have, also, checked on the ramp.  It is not closed.  However, they won't start the remodeling until March 16, so it will not be in good shape. 

Brownlee Reservoir - Letter from Idaho Power

I want to take a minute to provide information regarding our current plans for operations at Brownlee Reservoir.  As snowpack conditions above Brownlee (as well as above The Dalles) have diminished over the last few weeks, the amount of space required by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers within Brownlee Reservoir for the purpose of system flood control has been significantly reduced.  This is great news for recreation within the reservoir this spring. 

Brownlee Reservoir elevation is currently 2052 or 25 feet from full pool.  We anticipate that the reservoir elevation will slowly increase over the next few weeks, as inflows allow for a slow refill to begin.  Currently, all boat ramps with the exception of Spring Recreation and Steck Park remain accessible for use.  As we move through the flood control season,  these planned operations may change.  Updates will be made available as soon as possible.   

Please visit our Idaho Power website, http://www.idahopower.com/OurEnvironment/WaterInformation for current reservoir elevation information. 

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact me at (kdavisbutts@idahopower.com).

Instructions for Accessing Idaho Power’s Hells Canyon Wi-Fi Flow Monitoring System

Wi-Fi enabled flow monitors are now available at the Hells Canyon Visitors Center, Pittsburg Landing, Cache Creek and Heller Bar. The Wi-Fi signal originates from the stationary flow monitors at these locations. Users should be able to detect the signal up to 0.5 miles from the flow monitor location. Signal strength depends on the terrain, line of sight to the antenna and weather conditions.

Any Wi-Fi enabled device, such as a smart phone, tablet computer or laptop computer should be able to access the river flow data. Users should keep in mind that this signal does not provide access to the Internet and is only for providing flow data in Hells Canyon. The Wi-Fi network cannot be used to send or receive emails or access other types of web-based information.
