Trinity Lake Report

7/15/18 - The lake is slowly ebbing,down to 2,319', which is 51' below the spillway. Trinity Center is down to the single lane. The lake has come down a bit faster the past few weeks -- they are sending water over the hill to the Central Valley, even as the river releases wind down. The lake is down 10' in the last 30 days, but only 6' in the prior 30 days.

The lake is reported to have slipped down to 84% of normal for this date, and this percentage is slowly dropping. In normal snowfall years, the river flows in May and June are backfilled by snowmelt. But with no snow, we are slipping further and further below normal.

Here is a graph of historic lake elevation (updated 7/14) 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.)


California Boating and Waterways Commission Approved Our Boat Ramp Project!

At the Feb 8, 2017 meeting of the state Boating and Waterways commission in Weaverville, approval was granted for the $1.64 million improvement project for the Trinity Center launching facility. The grant will be given to the USFS to do the work since they manage the National Recreation Area that controls recreation on Trinity Lake.

The USFS has applied for a $1.64 million grant to improve the parking, restroom and launch facilities at our boat ramp. The plan is to extend and re-pave the double-lane ramp down to the bottom of the current single-lane, put in a new floating courtesy dock, install all-new restrooms, and more! The details are in this document.

The day before the meeting, on Feb 7, the commission toured the Trinity Center ramp and concluded that this is a very valuable resource for our community in need of overhaul. A strong showing of local support both at the ramp tour and at the meeting in Weaverville went a long way toward convincing commission members of the need. They said multiple times that they were impressed with the public show of support for the project.

The work will need to be done at a lower lake level, and the end of the drought this year is ironic timing, but the project is approved and actually includes funding for a small cofferdam to allow work even if the ramp is not fully exposed.

A big Thank You to California Department of Boating and Waterways, the USFS NRA team, the Trinity Collaborative, and, of course, a small, tireless group of locals who fought to keep this project on the radar and moving forward!
