BOISE -- A lot more water is now coming through the Anderson Ranch Dam.

The Bureau of Reclamation increased flows Wednesday from 600 to nearly 1,600 cubic feet per second.

Officials say drought conditions last year forced the reservoir to be drawn down to less than 25 percent of capacity, but late season snow and rain helped refill the reservoir.

Managers say the South Fork of the Boise River is expected to stay at this level into August, which will benefit rafters and kayakers.
