Hey Bruce, I read online that the release was delayed due to a fire and the road to Horseshoe Lake is closed.  Any ideas?  I was thinking of hitting Bartlett this weekend and not having an influx of water coming in would be nice (for my fishing).

Matt just looked at the SRP website and yes they are delaying the water releases to a "later date" no date given. There is a new fire right next to the horseshoe lake road so that is probably the reason for delay.

good catch
