Very low Water level

Looks like the hydro guys are draining the lake in anticipation of he melting snow on the hills surrounding the lake.. I was there on the wednesday and the water level was really low. I went back the next day and the water had receeded even more by about 10 feet. So much that the dock was only half in the water! As you can see above that the fishng was very tough and I beleve that it was due the the rapid change in water levels. I did see a bit of a midge hatch about the time I was leaving but didnt have time to fish it because the park was closing and it was getting really cold as the sun went behind the hills. Ill try again in a few weeks when there is a litle more bug life hatching.
