All these March rains have helped bring Lake Camanche back up to 74% of full with an elevation of 220.04. It’s also helped with Pardee Lake increasing flows into Lake Camanche by approx. 1,021 C.F.S. and Camanche releasing 330 C.F.S. at the time of this report. Water temperature was reported to be 60 degrees.

Friday 3/16/18 Mt. Lassen released 1,200 lbs. of trout at the north shore courtesy ramp.  A huge plant of 3,600 lbs. is expected before the weekend.

Not bad for getting a call to go fish from @rickscustombaits 11 am., and I am still in my sweats. #bassfishing #fishinglife” 3/11/18
