Big cats and bass are the story this week.

Most catfish were reeled in off the south shore Willows Campground and day use areas using anchovies and chicken liver. The bass were caught out by the dam and off the Riverview Campground.

Lake Conditions:

Lake Camanche's current elevation is 171.22 as of 09/7/15 ans 64.28' from spill. Water temperature at the launch ramp is approximately 82degrees. Inflow from Lake Pardee is temporarily at 813 c.s.f. and the outflow from Lake Camanche is currently 200 c.s.f. The flow into Camanche varies from 11 cfs to 850 cfs. as EBMUD generates electricity from Pardee's flow. At this time they turn on two of the three generating units periodically during the week. Each unit can deliver 400 cfs, thus the 11-800 cfs range.

EBMUD Advisory!

We have been made aware by EBMUD that they recently sampled fish in a couple of land locked ponds that have surfaced as a result of the decreasing water elevation.
North shore pond is located in East Cove, behind Horse Island.
South shore land locked pond is located beyond the Monument RV park.
Both ponds are a number of acres in size and had black bass, crappie, catfish and bluegill according to an EBMUD official.
