All I know is Shasta better be filling. I dont want to miss the Shasta trip for a third year in a row due to low lake levels. I say let it keep raining cuz after three dry winters we have some cathing up to do.

the problem is all the rain in so cal. we would prefer tons of snow in the mountains of northen cali. that would sustain most of us so cal peeps just fine.

The local news (Sac area) said only Black Butte is letting water out. The Sac river came up 12 feet in the last couple of days measured at the Knights Landing bridge.

Now if the debris would clear up by Sunday I could ride the chocolate butter !

I looked at the Local water levels Shasta is up like 9 feet from a week or so ago. But still on 46% of full. We need more rain. Keep filling. I know everyone's lake can use it

I agree with train, for us in So Cal, this much rain in this short of time has nowhere to go, but right into the ocean

Don't get me wrong, I love the fact that the lakes and reservoirs and the snow pack are filling up north, but being stuck in the house for four days on Wakeworld is beginning to drive me crazy!

Good luck to you So Cal folks !

Problem is the lakes will be drained for agriculture by the middle of summer. Someone thinks its more important to feed people than to wakeboard!!

We are riding at Berryessa on Saturday 1-23-09. I wonder how far it came up since 2 weeks ago when we were there.
Old    David (l1spoogy)      Join Date: Jun 2004       01-22-2010, 8:56 AM Reply   
No updates on Berryessa Lake level in the past few days. According to the paper it went from 61% to 65%.

Below is a webcam you can control and look at Pleasure Cove. Its all the way to the right. Just pan over and zoom in. Looks pretty muddy right now.

Our lake has come up significantly, but it will be a couple months at least before we can ride it. Nacimiento has a huge watershed and when it rains it goes up fast. Unfortunately that means it picks up every nasty bit of tree, dock, buoy and floats it in the middle of the lake. Takes months and strong winds to make it doable, even then you are dodging crap.

Bring more rain!!!

Shasta is up 50' from this time last year and we're still getting rain up here so its looking pretty good.

Good for So Cal (Northen Mexico as I call it)to get water as maybe they can quit mooching water from us up here in Northern Cali.

Nice Walt - my buddie is going up there tomorrow to check on the level for me - now I know. We are way above average here on Clearlake too - almost 4.5 feet above Rumsey and average is just under 3' - can't wait!

That pic was from last Saturday.
It's around 70% but they are dumping at the dam right now. I'm sure they could top it off in less than a day when they slow the out-flow.

i had a conversation with the executive legal cousel for the Department of Water Resources the other night ab some of this and he seemed very optimistic ab where the state is heading in regards to its handling of water.

the snowpack is what we should all be concerned ab. not just SoCal but NorCal as well. like others have said the heavy rains are just a short term cure for everything but if we can get a substantial snowpack that can hold through out the summer then we'll be in a much better position.

I was on a road trip early this week and passed by mcclure, melones and pedro. I didnt get a great look at mcclure, only a peak, but it still looked very low. Melones and pedro looked to be doing very well. I dont know what percentage they're at but i know from when i have been there in the past durring the summer its about the same if not higher

I just checked Lake Elsinore. The area got just over 6 inches of rainfall last week, which resulted in a 4 foot rise at the lake.

Please bring more water. The higher the lakes get the less people are out on the delta.....

Naci in Central Calif is gaining about 1% per day.
We are at 37% with 15 inches of rain fall so far this year. The knuckle heads at Monterey County Water let 20' out in November after that nice big rain in October. Do you know how much water 20' is on a 14 mile long lake?? Someone explain that?

Was at a meeting last Sunday with a few board members from MID (Merced Irrigation District.) They are expecting McClure to be almost full this Summer. A lot of snow pack up towards Yosemite. But we will see. Maybe they were just telling us what we wanted to hear.

Oroville is still low! You can only get in if you wanna back it in through the mud. Anyone know what Camp Far west (CFW) is like?

We rode Mendocino yesterday. The South ramp is open now. Butter all day and no boats. It was a little woody and there were a few lake dragons floating around though.

Old    Greg C (v220ls)      Join Date: Aug 2004       02-02-2010, 11:41 AM Reply   
Damn, damn Walt look at that butter... We are still low, water and 5mph here in Sac. Nice shots... Rain baby rain.

McClure looks beautiful wow!

I bet CFW is just a mud puddle? Might have to run out there and take a peek.

Send some water here ! We have been in a drought ever since the 3 hurricanes hit us in 2004. Our Chain of Lakes is no more, all the canals are dried up !!

Shasta just hit the 1000' mark. Only about 60 more feet for it to be full.
