    How is August for going through Kolob. Is it too late in the year? I have always done it earlier in the year.

    Same here. And if you like nice photos, the lighting was lousy compared to mid-late June.

    Ive done Kolob in June, July, August, and September. August can be a great time to do Kolob Creek. It really depends more on contemporary conditions than the actual month. A water year like this may see very little or no flow that late in the year though, unless the monsoon saturates things a little bit.

    If they are releasing 3cfm from Kolob reservoir, does the flow usually increase or decrease by the time it gets to Kolob?

    Really would depend on the season and time of year. In a juicy winter, there's more available outside of the release from the reservoir. Dry? Not so much.

    My bet, given how dry the winter was, it'll be pretty meager this summer.

    What Brian said, but as an example the only time I did it they were releasing 3cfs from the dam and the canyon had barely a trickle.
