Trinity Lake Report
5/20/19 - They started dumping the lake again, while the latest round of storms tries to keep up.
The lake slipped a few inches overnight, and is just below 2,365', a bit
over 5' down from the spillway, still 97% full, 114% of average for the date. We actually got several
inches of new snow above 5,000' to help counter the dumping. The creeks are still roaring as the storm runoff
and snowmelt makes it down the mountains. It is not clear yet if there is enough snow to make up
for the water wasted down the river come mid to late June, particularly since they are ramping up
the dumping of the lake this weekend. Nevertheless, this should be a great boating season!
Trinity Center ramp is closed at least until at least Memorial Day for the widening, repaving and
rennovation project. Minersville ramp is open. The exposed ramp paving is complete. The parking
lot remains to be paved, but between locals driving on the road base and the new precipitation,
paving has been delayed. The lower portion
of the ramp may have to wait until after summer season. However, the ramp should be open
this coming summer for boating season, and we hope the lower portion of the ramp is
completed next fall.
Here is a graph
of historic lake elevation (updated 5/16) 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.)
