    Doesn't look too bad right now. Use these links as a guide. The first is a summary of the area lakes. Scroll down past the map to see current lake levels and outflow (spillway rates). The second provides more detail, including the max outflow level. Between the current and max, you should be able to approximate the flow.

    Since many of the streams downstream of atwood are flooded (see further down the page on the 2nd link), they might hold atwood back a bit to let those streams settle -- then "look out". Not a bad idea to check these links after a visit to your favorite spillway and make a note of what you saw vs. what the web page said. From there, you can determine an outflow range that you consider to be 'prime'.

    Hey saugeyesam, also check on the southeast section about Atwood.......people post Atwood in both sections! There is a post in there now about atwood on the 2nd, but no update on the levels! Hope this helps though! :)
