Lake Conditions
Lake Camanche's current elevation is 186.26 as of 11/09/14. Water temperature at the launch ramp is approximately 62 degrees and the lake is 31% full. The inflow from Lake Pardee is currently 11 c.s.f. and the outflow from Lake Camanche is currently 229 c.s.f. The flows into Camanche currently vary from 11 cfs to 800 cfs. This is because when they are generating electricity from Pardee the flow is increased from the baseline 11 cfs at this time they are turning on two of the three generating units periodically during the week. Each unit can deliver 400 cfs, thus the 11-800 cfs range.
