Trinity Lake Report

2/23/18 - The lake is holding at 2,325', which is 45' below the spillway. The lake has been held at this level since early October, after peaking at 2,365' on May 10.

The lake is has slipped below "normal" for this date due to the extended dry period. We should be getting precipitation but we seem to be heading back into the drought. The lake is now reported to be 99% of normal for this date. This number will continue to slowy drop since in more normal times we'd be getting lake inflows raising lake level to the daily "normal."

The Trinity Center lower, single-lane ramp is still open. Fairview and Minersville ramps are open. Stuarts Fork, Bowerman, Tannery and Clark Springs ramps are closed now, but we are still having a great fishing season.

Here is a graph of historic lake elevation (updated 2/19) 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!
