Dry weather leads to drop in Yampa River flow levels

The dry weather that arrived in the Yampa Valley last week has produced a corresponding drop in streamflow in the Yampa River in downtown Steamboat Springs.

The river was flowing at 89 cubic feet per second early Monday morning. That compares to the median flow of about 265 cfs for the date. That statistic is based on 96 years of records.

As recently as July 6, the river was flowing above 180 cfs.

The U.S. Geological Service was reporting Sunday that the Yampa was carrying 54 cfs where it flows into Stagecoach Reservoir, upstream from Steamboat. The dam at Stagecoach is releasing 40 cfs. Fish Creek, where it flows into the Yampa near Anglers Drive and U.S. Highway 40 in Steamboat is contributing 15 cfs to the river.
