Lake Camanche continues to slowly fill receiving approx. 771 C.F.S while only releasing 344 C.F.S into the Mokelumne River. Lake Camanche is still at 72% but at 218.99′ elevation as of this report.

For the most up to date information you can go to:

Mt. Lassen trout farm made their delivery on Friday 12/15 dropping 1,800 lbs. all to the north shore ramp. The temperature was taken at the ramp at the time of the drop and was reading 56 degrees. Further upriver the temps are a bit cooler the closer you get to the release waters from Pardee. We will receive another load this week of 2,400 lbs. sometime before next weekend.
