BASS LAKE WATER LEVEL UPDATE

Bass Lake water levels are projected to be lower than normal this summer — yet higher than last year — due to the critically dry year.

PG&E is managing water at Bass Lake to balance the needs of recreation, the environment, power generation and downstream water users.

PG&E recognizes the importance of higher lake levels during the recreation season for Bass Lake and Madera County. Despite the third consecutive dry year, Bass Lake is expected to top-off within 3 feet of normal. 

Little to no significant impacts are anticipated for the lake’s two public concrete boat ramps and commercial marinas.

PG&E urges boaters to be vigilant, exercise caution and maintain safe speeds and distances from other watercraft as lower elevation means:

less water surface area to share with other boaters.

submerged objects are closer to the surface than in higher water level years. 

There are some sandy beaches and still plenty of water for summer fun!

BEAR SAFETY TIPS IN RESIDENTIAL AREAS

Minimize odors and the availability of food rewards throughout your yard and neighborhood. Report all residential wildlife encounters to your local wildlife management agency and police department, and notify your neighbors of the situation.

Remove any dense brush that could provide cover for a bear or cougar and make a surprise encounter likely. Also remove brush piles that snakes may hide in.

If a bear or other wild animal repeatedly enters your yard, look for what attractants are drawing it there and remove them.

Put out garbage on the day of pick up, not the night before. Store garbage in a sturdy building or place in an approved bear-resistant trash receptacle.

Do not leave pet food out. Hang bird feeders out of a bear’s reach, away from your house, and take down during periods of high bear activity.
Keep bar-b-ques clean and grease free. Store with livestock/pet feed and other attractants inside a sturdy building.

Fruit trees: Pick all ripe fruit from the tree and surrounding ground.
Compost piles may attract wildlife, especially bears. Do not put meat, fish, and other pungent scraps in compost piles. Add lime to reduce odors and accelerate decomposition.

Electric fences are an effective way to keep bears and other animals out of orchards, gardens, compost piles and beehives. Follow appropriate safety precautions.

Never feed wildlife. Feeding marmots and deer can attract cougars. Feeding chipmunks and ground squirrels can increase the possibility of hantavirus and rabies.

All wildlife can be dangerous. Do not attempt to chase or harass an animal out of your yard, especially if it is a bear, or cougar. Contact the appropriate authority for assistance.

Be sure to seal holes and spaces around your home to prevent insects, snakes, and rodents from entry.

Bear activity may intensify in the spring when bears are hungry and emerging from their dens, in the fall when bears are bulking up for hibernation, and during drought periods. This is due to natural foods often being scarce.

SUGGESTED ACTIONS IN THE EVENT YOU ENCOUNTER A BEAR

Being outdoors means being with wildlife. Many people never encounter a bear. But if you do, here’s some simple advice:

  • DO NOT RUN.
  • Remain calm.
  • Group together and pick up small children.
  • Continue to face the bear and back away slowly, talking
  • calmly to identify yourself as a human.
  • If the bear continues to approach, try to scare it away by
  • making yourself as large and imposing as possible by
  • stretching your arms overhead and making loud noises.
  • Carry and know how to use bear spray, which is available at many outdoor retailers and can be used to deter a charging bear.
