The Federal Watermaster is My Buddy....

062411:  Ummm, yeah, there is a lot of water out there.  This winter was very good to us.  Again.  And beginning in March of this year the Federal Watermaster started making room for the Spring run off.  We have been on a bit of a roller coaster ride since we opened and put our docks in the water.  Everyday seems like a guessing game....Will the water go up?  Will the water go down?   Now it is absolutely clear that the Spring run off has started and the water will continue to go up until the lake fills up - which should be in about 3-4 days from now.  (It is a mere two feet vertical, or about 5,000 acre feet, from filling up.)  How do I know all of this?  Pure knowledge and experience.....on how to pick up the phone and ask the Federal Watermaster:  "So, are we done with the roller coaster lake level and, by the way, when is the lake going fill up?"
