Lake Camanche was showing an elevation of 226.11′ and 84% full at the time of this report. The Lake continues to release at approx. 342 C.F.S. while receiving approx. only 11 C.F.S from Pardee Lake again at the time of this report.

Still lots of recreational boaters on the lake and fishing reports have been slow. Warm water temperatures are still being reported, all in the mid-80s.


NOTICE:  At this time and for the immediate future we are unable to sell or supply gasoline from the north shore marina due to maintenance work needed on the pipeline. No ETA was given.

NOTICE: Gasoline is no longer available at the South Shore Marina until further notice.

She wrote, “Today was a very nice day, got up early to just take the boat out and do a little fishing, got to North shore Camanche to find out bass tournament was going to start. Arnold Padilla and I waited to let all the guys out and then we headed out. Wasn’t much trout out so I decided to fish at 37′ deep using speedy shiner trolling at 2.5 mph, we’re making a turn and Bam I got a hookup then I thought oh crap I’m snagged on something that’s when Arnold said you have a bass and it was a screamer 😂, trust me fighting a large mouth bass on kok/trout rode with 8 lb test line was fun, brought it in and what a big one @ 4 5 lbs took picture and released and told it to hide from the tournament guys 😂😂 other than that no other fish but a couple of bumps.”
