Nor Cal lakes debris update
 
I've seen some threads that are a couple of weeks old that mention lots of debris in the lakes. I'm looking for an update from folks that have been to:
Don Pedro
Melones
Oroville
Shasta
Bullard
(order does not suggest favorites:)

Thanks in advance.....

Was at Pedro two weekends ago. Did not see much in the way of debris. Mostly small stuff not big enough to cause damage.
You don't have McClure up on there, but I'll give it anyway. Was there this weekend. Again, not much - mostly small stuff and not a lot at that - but up the river arm we came across the occasional log/tree floting down river. When the wind picked up later in the afternoon it was nearly impossible to see some of the stuff through the chop until you were right on top of it.

Lots of wood @ Pillsbury but getting better.

Was at Oroville weekend before last and there was a ton of debris. From little pieces to full trees. A lot of it pretty water logged too and floating nearly under the surface. We dinged our prop, it sucked.

Just got back from a week at Melones. Water rose about 2 feet while there. There is some debris in the north end where the river is pushing in...but really wasn't too much past 2nd bridge. We mostly stayed in the south end around Tuttle and it was clear. Lake is overall just terrible...nobody should go there :D

LOTS of debris at Bullards 2 weeks ago. Water was at the rim so debris situation should get better at some point. I think some of these lakes also collect and clear debris with nets to prepare for the July 4th weekend onwards so should get better as summer really hits.

Bullards was a mess a couple weeks ago, was a miracle my wedge or prop didn't get dinged up while wakeboarding up the river arm. At time you had to practically slow down to 15mph when towing a boarder to navigate through the mine field. But the water level was at like 102 percent so hopefully it goes down.

Pedro was clear last weekend.

^^No douchebag owned X80s sinking.just below the surface?

I was at Oroville two weekends ago,and I couldn't believe the amount of debris in the water,not little stuff either,big prop killerz!

dohboy 06-21-2010 8:43 PM

Haha no X80 submarines seen. Although it was windy most of Friday and Saturday. Im pretty sure the best water we saw all weekend was when we were crossing the bridge on our way out Sunday morning!

Hitting McClure this weekend. Hopefully no logs by the dam.

Spent last weekend at Shasta. Didn't cruise around too much but didn't see much of any debris.

Ride Melones a few times a week....
it is getting pretty clear even far up river....but I agree with Paul....stay away another 4 months and it should be fine! = )

Oroville is notorious for floating debris. I have seen full log drifts before. It usually takes a month or two past Memorial to clear out completely.

ss1234 06-25-2010 2:21 PM

thanks for the updates.

JSmith 06-28-2010 12:47 PM

Spent last week at Pedro didn't see anything.

Bullards Bar finally looking nice and clear this weekend -

mdaijogo 06-30-2010 12:43 PM

McClure was clear out in the Barret Cove area. Lake was nice a full. The marina's parking lot was a touch underwater.
