Decided to take the first trip of the year to the Cheakamus this past Saturday, Sept 29. To my surprise, the river was very high. Bank to bank in fact. Visibility was decent, but there was just too much water. I took a look at the Hydrometric graph which showed some large step-change increases in water level occurring on Sept 27 and Sept 28, suggesting that BC Hydro was spilling more water from the Daisy Lake Dam into the Cheakamus (rather than into the Squamish to generate electricity). Does anyone know if this is correct? If so, why? My guess is that it was in anticipation of the storm and heavy rains which were predicted starting Saturday afternoon.

Any thoughts would be appreciated. It's kind of frustrating driving up there only to see my favourite river virtually unfishable.

Many thanks in advance.
