Water managers are releasing more water from dams to make room for spring run-off.
The high water is forcing a soggy jog – or even a detour in some areas of the Greenbelt.
The river is flowing at just over 6,000 cubic feet per second.
That’s just under flood-stage - and water experts are warning people to use caution.
“It’s dangerous down on the river with these kinds of flows,” said Brian Sauer, engineer with the Bureau of Reclamation. “The water is fast and cold so be cautious on the Greenbelt when you’re our recreating – you and your pets and kids.”
The river could stay high until late May.
