Lake Camanche is coming up very fast with all the spring runoff from the mountains!

Pardee Lake is still at 101% of capacity releasing and spilling over 4,000 C.F.S. into Camanche. AS of this report the Lake Camanche’s elevation is 233.34. For the most accurate updated elevation information go to:  http://cdec.water.ca.gov/cgi-progs/reservoirs/RES

As of this report the lake is 96% full and raising about a percentage a day. If this rate continues the lake could possibly spill for the first time in 20 years. It’s great to see all this water but it does come with some issues too. High water means that the ramps are a little flatter as it nears the top of the ramp and may be a harder to launch bigger boats.

This week’s report is all about BASS! Check out the pictures below shared by anglers fishing the lake over the last week.

Juan Padilla (@oj_padilla22) shared all of the pictures on Instagram from his trip on the lake last Saturday 6/24. Quoting Juan , “Today was insane! @canopy_grenades cinnamon jig and @wootungsten invisashot paaired was the @trapplertackle drop shot hook was the key today!” He also wrote, “Had to end the day with a bang! @canopy_grenades cinnamon football jig was getting chewed all day!”

Another Instagramer @coach_miguel posted these pictures and wrote, “We just got back from our camping trip. i didn’t break any records but thans to @oj_padilla22 for some tips, i was able to take my nephew@_ball_in_life out and put him on some of his first bass so that made my whole weekend. Didn’t matter if I caught and as long as the kids are catching fish then my weekend was great!!! Good job nephew!!!!”

Local angler Larry Valdez Sr. shared these shots of his fishing trip with his son on Facebook and said, “What a blast fishing with my son Elijah Valdez we killed them.”

Leann Fronek posted these shots of her husband on Saturday 6/24 and said, “Tom Fronek did good this morning over by the day use.”

Thank you to all that choose Lake Camanche and to those who share their pictures!
