And just like that we have a Lake! Temperatures started heating up last Tuesday and DingleBerry Creek picked up. Had a bit of Thunder and a few sprinkles Wednesday evening and about 10 sprinkles more on Thursday along with breezy weather. Weekend temps dipped a bit but look to be on the rebound this week.
 
With the rise in the Lake, we were finally able to float boats and you’re able to get all the way to the back to DingleBerry Inlet. Don’t forget about Little George Inlet all the way in the back and George Inlet about 200 yards up from Little George. You may also want to drift the channels between the two Natural Lakes and the front Natural Lake and manmade portion – Lake narrows down a bit in those spots and water moves a tad bit faster. David Mosqueda was off-shore fishing with PowerBait when he landed a nice 2-pound Rainbow. We let the Department of Fish and WildLife hatchery know they could get down to the Lake so hoping for our first stocking this week.
 
The Aspen are starting to leaf out at the Lake as are the CrabApples and Delicious Apples even the White Lilacs are leafing out.
 
If you plan to park down in the Lake bottom, please be courteous and park out of the way – don’t park behind people you don’t know – leave them a way out – don’t park in the middle of the road – someone may want to get out or in – pull off to the side of the road and most of all – PICK UP YOUR TRASH!!!
 
The Café will be closed on Wednesday, June 19th for our normal closure, then Thursday, June 20th (to give me an extra off day) and Southern California Edison is planning the pole replacement on Friday, June 21st. Cardinal Village Resort in Aspendell and Bishop Creek Lodge will both be opened.
 
Hikers:
With the continued snow, many of the trails are still covered in snow, but there are also some areas that the snow has melted making for a wet trail.  Also, with all the new snow, Spring avalanches are a bit of a concern. Please check the weather report prior to heading into the backcountry for an overnighter or two. Might want to hike with a buddy. Put a note in your car about where you were headed and when you think you’ll return.
