General Comments

WATER TEMPERATURE- 58°

SURFACE ELEVATION- 1893.62 ---- 1.17' above conservation pool

The water level is 0.08' lower than it was one year ago at this time.  All high-water boat ramps are usable (Old Marina, Rock Point, Goose Flats and Morel) at this level. 

A current release rate of 120 cfs from the irrigation canal is being conducted to maintain the lake level.  

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.
