The bite was slow for some but good for others searching for trout. Decent size crappie and small-medium size bass were also reported.
EBMUD continues to drain down both Pardee and Lake Camanche in anticipation for the spring runoff of the Sierra snowpack. Pardee Lake is down to 95% and still releasing approximately 3,738 C.F.S into Camanche which is still releasing close to 5,000 C.F.S. As of this report Lake Camanche was at elevation 223.21′ or 79% full. For the most accurate updated elevation information go to http://cdec.water.ca.gov/cgi-progs/reservoirs/RES
