Marina Launch Ramp: 70F (Measured 3′ deep at the dock @ 5pm)

The lake temperature is 68F at 3′ Deep measured at the end of the marina launch ramp at 5:00pm 6/22/09.
Temperatures are coming up, Fathers Day is coming up, and we hope you are coming up too. Come and enjoy the weekend and check out the area, this weekend is also the County Fair in Placerville and there is as always some great wine tasting over in Fair Play or just down the road in pleasant valley. If you come up pleasant valley road on the way up instead of 50 then there are wineries on the way, most are open till 5pm, so come early and get a nice bottle of wine for the campsite or boat!
I have updated the section under links to include fun things to see and do around the lake.
The Sun is shining, the squirrels are playing and spring is in the air. The lake is full of water and campers are enjoying the fresh air and relaxing by the lake.
We took a hike back to Park Creek to see the waterfalls and they did not disappoint. I put a clip show on the site in the hiking section in case you are interested in seeing what the hike is like. We also hiked down the trail and across the bridge at the spillway when it was in it’s full glory, but I’m afraid that will dry up soon as the weather warms up.
The boat ramps are getting busy, I like to sit up above the ramps in the afternoon, BBQ some hot dogs and watch the boaters pulling the boats out. There is always a lot of action and it can be quite entertaining.
Until next time, have a great day around the lake!
I drove past the lake today and could no longer see the bottom drop off of the boat ramp… YEA! it looks like this last set of storms storm has added about 4′ or more to the lake!
Well it’s raining up here finally, The lake is so low that I can almost walk to the island. Please join us in doing the Jenkinson Rain Dance! (just a jump to left… then a step to the right and then the fisherman’s cast…) Let it Rain, Let it Snow!
With the levels low and the water cold it’s time for the fish to come up for a bite. Now is the time to break out your poles and get down to the lake for some mighty fine fishing. Don’t for get to bring you catch to the Country Store at Sly Park Resort across from the park entrance to get it recorded for the “Big Fish of the Month” contest.
