Please note all shipments are sent Tues - Thurs

Water levels on the Colorado River depends largely on the release of water from Lake Mead through Hoover Dam. There are times when the water release causes the river to move much more quickly than at other times. Knowing when there is a scheduled release will let you know if boating upstream, to Hoover Dam, would be easy or a challenge.
