Clear Lake this week 1/8/2017

Clear Lake this week 1/8/2017

As everyone Im sure has heard, this storm system has dealt moderate to severe damage throughout Lake county and conditions continue to be iffy at best.

Major mudslides around the county make navigating treacherous as does moderate to severe flooding in Hidden Valley, Kelseyville, Upper Lake, Lower Lake, and areas in Lakeport
as well.

The lake itself continues to race towards full pool despite Cache Creek dam dumping near 3k cfs, and Putah Creek is near flood stage in the Hidden Valley area as well.

I think I'd exercise some discretion if one really needs to come up early this week, ss the forecast for Thursday through Saturday looks much better, which would give conditions a chance to stabilize a bit.

Should you choose to take a chance please be aware that there is a ton of debris in the lake
so be careful!

Dan,
Thanks for the report. Do you think the lake will be fishable by Friday? Does the lake ever get completely blown out? I have fished the lake a few times over the winter with very limited success. How long before it starts to get into full swing?
Thanks,
Bob

All good questions. Yes the lake can get blown out but I dont think thats quite the case though it isnt real safe this soon after a series of major storms. Use caution and be careful running. Dan
