The weather is good between 89-97 durring the summer and not much debree in the water. the only thing is it gets hella windy at that place so you have to get up early to ride and be ready to be done riding by 12 some times 2 I have only had about 7 or 8 day that you could ride all day in the 10-12 years I have been going

My family went to Almanor for many, many years from the mid-80's to early 2000's. Great overall lake for family fun...water, golf, trees, clean air, etc., though not the best for riding in retrospect. Almanor is a typical mountain lake. Super butter in the morning and windy in the afternoon. It is also basically open with no coves so it gets fairly rolly. Water can also be a bit chilly. Cold overnight, but the air warms up fast in the morning. Debris is not a concern, but the lake is man-made and there are areas where the lake is shallow. Water level is also a concern in drought years. Worth checking out for all around fun, though there are better lakes for riding around.

This is true better lakes for riding but you gotta love Lake Almanor I have had days were it was good and there was only one other boat on the water. Clear water you can see the bottom from like 40 ft. west shore is very shallow north shore extreamly shallow goose bay is the place to ride all day but getting there when its windy is like deadliest catch some times .

I have been going there for 20 years with my family. It is such a cool lake and there is lots of outdoor stuff to do around the area. It is usually windy in the afternoons but we have also had good luck there as well. Last year there were big fires up there and the water was butter for the whole week we were there and everyone stayed away with the smoke in the air!!! Goose bay is definately where the best water will be. I will be there from August 8-15 if anyone wants to ride!!

I've got a house up there. The week after memorial weekend the lake was glass ALL day and there was not another boat on the water. We rode all day for 3 days straight, the best I have seen the water in the past 7 year. Weather was great, debris is very minimal.
