Water Conditions: New Melones Lake is currently holding 610,979 acre-feet of water. The lake level came up over a foot this past week. It is currently at 880 feet above sea level and 205 feet from full. There is plenty of snow to melt in the high country, hopefully the runoff will help fill the lake and offset releases. The water clarity is clear in most of the lake. The water temperature is gradually rising, with the average being 66-74 degrees. The dam area is still buoyed off. Glory Hole Point boat launch is a two lane concrete... [Read more]

Answer: If you do a google search you will find some kits that state they will detect Domoic acid toxins in shellfish, marine algae and water samples. However, the California Department of Fish and Wildlife (CDFW)...
