Yeah; this about the best way to get an general idea. Then; you have to look at the upstream inflow data and take in account the amount or rainfall, etc.

Also; the water table is higher at the moment and they have to slowly cutback as to not create erosion problems.

I would expect that 1,000-1,002 would be a comfortable level for them to let up if we do not receive more abnormal rain events. It is starting to get closer to Mid-March when they need to focus on maintaining an adequate lake level to make it through statistically lower summer rainfall levels.
