Red Deer / Bow R Snowpack

Not to be too much an alarmist, but the Red Deer River could use some snow or rain. The river is almost at minimum flows and the snow pack is getting pretty thin already. Most other watersheds’ snow pack is still a long way from finished and a great deal yet to melt, but the Red Deer could be in for drought conditions sooner than later. Come on June monsoons (just not too monsoon-ish).

The charts below hint of the tale of just how different the two watersheds are and why they are such different fisheries.
