FOLSOM LAKE

Rating - Fair   

Friday, Jan 13 2023
Inflow actually brought the lake up 8 feet to 393.06 feet in elevation and 29 percent, but the 5MPH restriction remains in effect. Bass fishing was excellent prior to the storms, but there is floating debris and logs throughout the lake. Heavy water releases are in effect down the American River. The Granite Bay low water ramp and Hobie Ramp at Browns Ravine are the only ramps open.
