PG&E projects Lake Almanor, Bucks Lake water levels to be higher than average
Pacific Gas and Electric Co. (PG&E) recently announced that Lake Almanor and Bucks Lake are anticipated to be at higher than normal levels due to above-average precipitation in the early spring and last year’s abundant snowmelt.
PG&E announced the lake level projections at the 2105 Lake Level Committee meeting in Chester, which is held in most years to review and discuss PG&E’s planned water operations for Lake Almanor and Bucks Lake for the remainder of the year. The committee name refers to Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) project No. 2105, which is the license number for PG&E’s Upper North Fork Feather River hydroelectric project.

Frazier Falls; Worth the walk
Late spring is the best time to view Frazier Falls, one of the jewels of the Lakes Basin Recreation Area. The trail is free of snow and the falls are still full. The trailhead is located on Gold Lake Road, about six miles from the intersection of Highway 89. Follow the signs to the parking and picnic areas. The trail is paved and provides a gentle half-mile walk to the viewing area. Strategically placed benches provide areas to rest and visit. The United States Forest Service reports that most of the campgrounds and trails in the area are now open.
