69.1cfs at 4.5 on the gauge. Official elevation is 5097.15ft as per Don Willis Lassen County surveyor. The lake has barely raised an inch since 4-23-19. We are about as high as we are going to get. Flow will be ok for the fish upstream for a while but won’t help the lake elevation now but could stave off some evaporation. But I’ll guarantee we’ll see a drop next month. Wish we could get that 10” of rain we are missing from 2017. The lake is 2.96ft higher than last fall and a few inches above 2017 elevation which was our highest level in 9years of drought. Temporary use at spalding south ramp & low water ramp down south will be our launching opportunities. I’ll be measuring the channel depth at spalding next week.
