Flow Schedule for Hoopa Valley Tribe Boat Dance Ceremony

Flows on the Trinity River will temporarily increase during this time

Bureau of Reclamation News Release

REDDING, Calif. – The Bureau of Reclamation will begin to increase releases from Lewiston Dam to the Trinity River beginning Aug. 18. The increased releases are in support of the Hoopa Valley Tribe bi-annual Boat Dance Ceremony held in Hoopa, California, and are separate from the Trinity River restoration flows. People near or recreating on the river can expect river levels to increase during this time and should take appropriate property and safety precautions. 

Beginning Aug. 18, Lewiston Dam releases are scheduled to gradually increase from the summer base flow of 450 cubic feet per second and are expected to reach a peak flow of 2,000 cfs on Aug. 20 before gradually returning to summer base flows later in the week.

River recreators can expect a higher volume of water and increased turbidity in the Trinity River during the ceremonial flow. As always, the public is urged to exercise caution when recreating in or around the Trinity River.
