With the end of May just days away, water reserves are low, but compare well with last year. According to the Natural Resource Conservation Service, the state average snow-water levels in the river drainages average 56% of state median compared with 43% last year at this time. However, even though Grassy Lake Reservoir is reported to be 101% of its capacity and Jackson Lake is 94% filled, Palisades is still only 44% filled and the Upper Snake River System as a whole is only 72% full. Last year at this time, the system was at 86% of its capacity. Forecasts for stream-flows in the summer ahead show Jackson Hole and Yellowstone will see 90 to 100% of the norm while it will be 70 to 90% of normal just west of the Tetons and 50 to 70% or normal along the Snake River Plain.
