Currently, the water level is 4.31 feet lower than it was one year ago, at this time. Started releasing water out of the irrigation canal on 7-4-2022 and shut it off on 7-19-2022.
All boat ramps are iced in at this time and the reservoir has approx. 5-inches of ice cover. If venturing out on the ice, use extreme caution and always fish with a buddy.
Remember it is illegal to release any fish into public water unless it was taken from that water. Please discard leftover bait in a trash can.
