haha no.... dry!

sorry i dont have any pictures. (not a picture taker) but here is a little info...
current lake levels for many of what you are looking for...
http://cdec.water.ca.gov/cdecapp/res...phsMain.action

if i am correct i think don pedro is just above half capacity. EDIT: last i checked that site didnt have don pedros info. i see now it is in fact below half capacity.
(pulled from their site)


i was just at Shaver Lake the other day and the end of the launch ramp wasnt even under water.

their camera pictures arent the greatest but here is a link to their cams...

Heres Don Pedro from last week out of Moccasin. Moccasin PT is now closed due to the water level for the year. SUX

wakeworld isn't letting me upload pictures ATM but to help put bullards into perspective, the dock at dark day was just pulled out..... guy pulling it out said he's never had to take it out this early. I'm thinking that both launches will be closed by September, last year it was October.

Clementine and Rollins water level doesn't really fluctuate that much, have been to both in the past week and it was fine.

Clementine
Sly Park
Clementine will always be full unless the American River dries up.

Sly Park is low, but not too bad, was up there last Friday, didnt take any pics. Its just up the road, if I get up there this week I try and get a pic.

Remember with clementine, it's a VERY small lake.
Usually a lake to go to on the weekdays as it fills up very quick.
It is about 5mins from me, I haven't been out there yet, but I hope to get out midweek next week.

Ya, to echo what Jmorlan said... Clementine is great weekdays after work or during the winter, glass... If you want to go on a weekend you better get up bright and early because it is a small lake and they limit the boats on it...

The delta is the place to be if you want good water for skiing/boarding/surfing/footing though... Normally only time I hit lakes is if I have a bunch of people with me that dont really ride and just want to swim and hang out...

Stay away from the delta. Now with the drought, it is all salt water. Protect your boat & stay away.

????????? Um, where in the delta are you skiing? Right at a inlet during low tide? I can tell you right now for a fact that up in the Brentwood and Walnut Grove areas there is no salt water.

migs-

Haha, I havent finished my coffee this morning.. I got you...


to the OP.. ya, the delta is horrible, you should definitely not risk the salt water or submerged obstacles, lakes are the place to be....

One of my friends wants to go to New Melones or Don Pedro this weekend. I haven't been on either lake in years and know they are much lower than typical. Two months ago I drove past New Melones on 49 and saw old trees sticking out of the water along the edges of the lake. This has me concerned.

This would be a family trip and I have two young kids who will be skiing. If we stay in the main bodies of both lakes, what are the conditions like? Many unknown obstacles? At this point I probably wouldn't even consider going up any of the arms.

Looking for some feedback from you guys who know these lakes and have rode them recently. Thanks.

Bullards is still legit about 1/2 full or empty, we were there last weekend ..Marina ramp is real sketchy but dark day is good so far..low level opened up some nice beach coves to chill but dont beach your boat!!lol. My young kids enjoyed..usually good riding conditions especially in the channel

Jayson, did they put the dock back in at dark day? I'm either headed to bullards tomorrow or clementine, can't decide.
