June 18,2011 - Only 20 bays left open - Gauge reads 19 feet

The River level has dropped drastically within the past few days. Only 20 bays were left opened this morning as crews closed 30.
On Monday, June 20, the Spillway structure will be closed completely and by afternoon the public will be allowed in for fishing. The Spillway will have been opened for 42 days on Monday.

So this is the end and then back to normal, hopefully? This is a lovely photo with the water and sky.

Is this a record? It seems terribly long.
