Lake levels down a lot

Lake levels down a lot

Postby gsc » Oct 2nd, 2017, 12:07 am

This weekend my self and wife took friends side by siding to visit a couple of the mountain lakes. I couldn't believe how low some of the lakes are. James lake was down by what looked like 2.5 to 3 feet along with Moore lake. Moore lake it looked like you could walk across it its so low.

I know we had a very hot summer with temperatures averaging in the 30's and no rain for months. I was still shocked to see how low the lakes where though. The fish to water ratio must be crazy in some of the small lakes hidden in the hills.

I am curious to see how next spring and summer are and what temps we will hit.
You don't need my help looking stupid! Your doing a wicked job at that your self.

You just started a war you won't win. Hope it was worth it.

Yes, the mountain lakes are indeed low hence the watering restrictions.

Oyama lake is down about 7' from what I could eyeball. Big change from June when it was about 6" above full pool.

Good time to be building a dock!
