Quick Updates From Bass Lake

Wednesday, March 28th, 2012

March 28, 2012

*  The Bass Lake Fishing Derby will definitely take place May 5th and 6th, 2012.  With the recent rain and snow storms the water level has been rising steadily.  For details and entry forms go to http://basslakechamber.com/

*  PG&E continues its seismic retrofit work on the lake side of Crane Valley Dam.  They are cautiously optimistic that the storms have left enough snow in the high country to fill the lake to the same level as last year.  Check out their progress at Dam Cam by clicking here:  http://basslakerealty.com/webcam.htm  The best viewing times, because of sun location, are morning, cloudy days, or after sunset.  It’s available 24/7/365.

*  Bass Lake School representatives are seeking public input on what to do with the property now that the school is closed.  This will be held on April 17th in the evening.  Check back later for specific time and location.

 

 

 

Crane Valley Dam Update – Boat Launch Extended

Thursday, December 1st, 2011

PG&E Crane Valley dam Seismic Retrofit update today:

The lake is now at 3347+/- which is as low as PG&E can legally go.  We
plan to keep it at this level as long as we can thru the winter and
early spring.  Weather systems will dictate how well we do.  FYI – we
just extended the Pines boat ramp to allow boat trailers to be able to
launch with the lake at this lowest level.
