Lake Camanche’s elevation was of approximately 217.21′ and 70% full at the time of this report. Releases have slowed down to approx.370 C.F.S. Lake Camanche was receiving approx. 292 C.F.S. from Lake Pardee which was 93% of capacity after the rains, again at the time of this report.

Surface water temperatures are still pretty warm in the neighborhood of 63 degrees. Still waiting on the cooler weather to help get the lake to turnover.

Another Instagramer, Erik Martinez aka, kraken_yakin commented, ” Had a chance to go out today with @yakin_james and @teejaxon for a little scouting @Lake Camanche. The bite was slow for the most part aside from #dinks and decent lost kitty fish I caught on a #luckcraft pointer 100dd. I’m so ready for the ice cold winter fishing so these lake bass will school up again.
