BEST WISHES FOR A SAFE AND HEALTHY NEW YEAR!
The association is aware of a large ice fishing tournament Saturday 2/6. All provisions have been made to control any trespassing across our property and adjacent private property with the approval of that land owner. The association doesn not condone fishing tournaments during the summer unless it's betwenn members (re-published in the fall 2015 newsletter) and we certainly don't condone an ice tournament when the fish are up for grabs through the county park even less through trespassing.
The lake level is down 12" today with the gates still open. The weather this weekend is calling for temps in the 20's. Ice has formed and the fisherman are out in abundance. Our members are doing a great job keeping the gates locked! THANK YOU!!
Our water shed is 240,000 acres upstream, meaning what rain they get north and west of us, comes through our lake. We also have another water shed around 12,000 acres which feed in locally through Squaw and Indian creeks. The gate is wide open so until the rain stops, or things freeze up, the lake level is going to move around.
