BOR Releases 2020 Snowmelt forecast for Bighorn Drainage

The Bureau of Reclamation has recently released the first installment of the snow and moisture forecast for the Bighorn watershed.  You can read it HERE.  It’s looking good for now, but we all know how that’s gone in the past…  Right now we’re on the right track for lower Spring flows, as long as we don’t have some catastrophic snow event, which we have to remember, it is Montana and there is a lot of winter left!

If all goes as planned, Bighorn Lake will be down to about 70% full by late March.  We’ll keep you updated!
