Looks like after an epic Winter of snow pack we should be lined out for a good season of flows at The Bend Whitewater Park. The irrigation district has released its flow schedule for the season, here it is:
50% flow from April 8st – April 30th
75% flow from May 1st – May 14th
100% flow from May 15th – September 15th
75% flow from September 16th -September 30th
50% flow from October 1st – 31st
Season shut off October (Specific date to be announced in September)
What does this mean? Well we’ll finally be out of the low tide conditions we experienced all winter. Starting 4/8 your fins should live to see another day. Predicting Green Wave conditions can be tricky but if the current configurations were anything like last year April 8th-May 15th and Sept 16th-Oct 31st will be prime time. Fingers cross we don’t experience the Summer Time Mush Burger at high flows, we shall see… Rest assured our Wave Shapers will do everything they can to keep it Surfy down at The Green Wave at The Bend Whitewater Park. And even if it’s a bit washed out this Summer you’re still Surfing a River in the heart of Bend, not too shabby.
