Start Date: 5/4/2018 -  
Santa Fe’s Children’s Fishing Derby was postponed due to unusually low inflows into the city’s reservoirs. The meager inflows also ended the possibility of a spring pulse of water in the Santa Fe River. The fishing derby usually takes place in early June, but could be rescheduled in the fall if adequate rain falls during the summer. Inflow into McClure Reservoir on May 1 was about 1 cubic foot per second, in comparison with the daily projection of about 4 cubic feet per second. Santa Fe New Mexican (N.M.), May 4, 2018
