Has anyone been in Alta Meadow recently?

Is the spring running?

Does it run year round even in drought years?

Thanks for any information.

Rafferty Creek is a few puddles, but mostly dry. Fletcher, Lewis, and Florence creeks all had nice tasting water, but the water temperature was pretty warm. Not the refreshing snow melt you're used to.

No running water between Chiquito TH and Lower Ottoway Lake. A few puddles of very dirty water along the way.
