The fight for Lake Almanor's cold water and fish that depend on it is in full swing. I have heard from many people that they thought this was over and done, indeed things were quiet on the thermal curtain front for a number of years. But as some of the signs used to say, "It's Not Dead Yet", you know what would be dead if this is allowed to go through, the World Class fishery for Rainbow and Brown Trout in Lake Almanor. The Lake, the basin, and the fish need your support.
Below you will find a YouTube video that i feel is one of the best presentations and explanations of both how the system works and the impacts this project would have if the California State Water Control Board is successful in mandating FERC put the cold-water thermal curtain in PGE's new operating permit for Lake Almanor. Please take the time and watch the video. Below that you will find pictures of a new letter highlighting the potential damages and concerns to the Lake Almanor Basin. So what can you do? Staying informed and making your voice heard are two biggies, and to that end, there are four pictures of the same letter addressed to our State Assembly Members, Our State Senator as well our US Representative. Please take a few minutes and print out each of them, sign them and mail them off. The more support we have, the better our chances of a favorable outcome.
The days are getting shorter, and the leaves are changing color everywhere you look fall is in the air. Fall is a great time to visit and fish Lake Almanor. This fall and winter the good people at Plumas Pines Resort on the west shore of Lake Almanor will have some additional lodging options available for you. During the month of November Plumas Pines will be keeping 3 cabins, 4 double rooms and Suite 11 open for reservations. The cabins will close down December 1st leaving the double rooms and suite 11 open through April 27 at which time the resort will resume normal operations.
