Releases from Davis and Parker dams will vary from about 4,600 cubic feet
per second cfs) to 24,000 cfs during a 24-hour period. River levels will
vary during the 24-hour periods with the higher levels coinciding with
periods of peak hydroelectric power generation.  Levels below the dams are
usually highest during the afternoon and early evening.  Average daily
releases may vary in response to changing conditions.

Average daily releases and midnight lake elevations for the week, as well as
anticipated averages for the following 2 weeks, are scheduled as follows:

ALL RIVER USERS should remember that fluctuating river flows may conceal or
create natural hazards such as moving sandbars, gravel bars, unstable 
riverbanks, floating or submerged debris, or other unfamiliar obstacles.
Caution should be exercised while using the river between Davis Dam and the
