Lake Camanche’s current elevation is 188.06 ft. above sea level. Water temperature at the launch ramp is approximately 65 degrees and the lake is 33 percent full. The inflow from Lake Pardee is currently 11 cubic feet per second and the outflow from Lake Camanche is currently 240 cfs. The flows into Camanche currently vary from 11 cfs to 800 cfs. This is because when they are generating electricity from Pardee, the flow is increased from the baseline 11 cfs. At this time, they are turning on two of the three generating units periodically during the week. Each unit can deliver 400 cfs, thus the 11 to 800 cfs range.

Catfish and Kokanee are the news for this week. Catfish baits were reported as night crawlers. Unfortunately, the Kokanee anglers are keeping a tight lip on baits and location. Catfish were caught at Houseboat Cove and off Eucalyptus Day Use.
