Trinity Lake Report

8/11/20 - The lake is at 2,310', down 60' from the spillway, 65% full, but still 83% of average. Water is still flowing over the hill to Whiskeytown for the fish in the Sacramento. Hopefully, all the hot days we are having will quickly heat up Lewiston Lake so Trinity water is not attractive for the Sacramento River. At the rate they are dumping it, we may see the bottom of the Trinity Center ramp where more work remains to complete the repaving.

Here is a graph of historic lake elevation (updated 8/9) showing spillway and Trinity Center ramp elevations. (The gaps in the line on the graph are due to missing or bad data in the state's database.)

All Debris Burning Suspended !!

Effective July 6, all debris burning has been suspended by CalFire. This means that ALL burn permits for debris pile burning as well as burn barrels are suspended. NO BURNING ! See the CalFire press release.

Campfires Suspended !!

The Forest Service has suspended campfires outside developed campgrounds. That means you can no longer set up camp on federal property with a campfire unless you are in a designated campground or day-use facility with a pre-existing campfire ring. You may camp with certain camp stoves.

The one exception to this order in our area is within 10' of Trinity Lake. You many have a small campfire within 10' of the lake as long as you are at least 50' away from any vegetation. All other campfire rules apply to these lakeside campfires including the requirement for a California Campfire Permit.

See details in the USFS press release. And be sure to read TCVFD's "All About Fire Permits" white paper to get all the current information about campfires and debris piles.

Fire Season Is Here !!

We had a nice bit of precipitation last week, but we are in a drought. The coming fire season will be a risky one. A lot of folks are taking advantage of the sunny days to burn yard debris. PLEASE BE CAREFUL!!

You MUST have an Air Quality Management District burn permit to burn yard debris, and you MUST ensure your burn day is an authorized burn day by calling the AQMD at 1-866-BURN-DAY and confirm Zone 3 is "ok for burning" that day. Standard Permits require burning to be finished by noon.

Check out all the fire information on our Fire Page, and download TCVFD's "All About Fire Permits" white paper to get all the current information about campfires and debris piles.

Be safe out there!
