Flood Releases from Clear Lake
The District began sustained releases for flood control purposes from Cache Creek Dam in the early morning hours on February 13th. Clear Lake was just under 6.0 on the Rumsey Gauge when the flood releases began, but more rain was on the way. When the rains tapered off on the 16th the lake was over 7.6 feet and rising. The District will continue flood releases until the lake reaches the allowable level in accordance with the Gopcevic Decree.
Indian Valley Campground Remains Closed Due to Fire
The facilities at Indian Valley suffered significant damage from the Pawnee fire. As a result the campground will remain closed, and there is no estimation for a reopening date. There is no access to the boat ramp at the campground. Additionally, fire damage under BLM jurisdiction in Walker Ridge Recreation Area has resulted in the closure of Walker Ridge Road to the north end of the reservoir. District staff is aware that the lack of access to Indian Valley Reservoir is inconvenient for recreationalists, and request patience in the aftermath of these catastrophic wildfires.
