The South Feather Water and Power Agency reports as follows: "We are currently spilling at Slate Creek (1,900 - 2,100 cfs) and Forbestown Diversion (540 - 570 cfs). These were both identified as Class IV-V during relicensing studies. South Fork Diversion is just barely spilling (16 cfs); it was rated Class III. If flows pick up there I will update you. Access to South Fork and Slate Creek is by snow vehicle only currently. There is road access to Forbestown Diversion, but we have a gate just below Oroleve Creek (the put in point) that is closed and locked daily at 4 pm. There is parking space before the gate."

The South Feather Water and Power Agency reports as follows: "Lost Creek Dam is currently spilling 150 cfs, which was determined to be within boatable range during the relicensing studies. There is still no vehicle access to the dam as snow drifts still block the road.

Forbestown Diversion Dam is also spilling, but only 30 cfs."
