Folsom Lake is high enough for boats to return to their slips — but not for long, according to Ken Christensen with the Folsom Lake Marina, who notes that the lake is currently dropping a quarter-foot a day during a time when it would normally be rising.
“The (state) Bureau of Reclamation has just informed me that the lake has probably already reached its highest level for this year … and the bureau is predicting that we will be at our pull-out elevation of 412 feet by the end of March,” he told Village Life. “An increase in our snowpack might give us an extra week or two but there is also a chance we will not make the end of March.
“I am hoping for that March Miracle but I also want slip renters to be informed,” Christensen added. “Many slip renters have made or are making plans for this summer and will probably want to review their options.”
