California Drought 2015

Reminders of this historical drought are prominent throughout California’s lakes and rivers. The drought has lasted four years and shows no signs of receding with a stronger than ever El-Nino event predicted.

Eagle Lake in the Lassen County in north-eastern California is California’s second largest natural lake. The lake is home to the Eagle Lake Trout. Thankfully these alkaline resistant trout were rescued for a hatchery when the lake first became challenged in the nineteen-fifties. Logging and irrigation reduced inflow quantities to dangerous levels then, and now the lake is almost completely dry.

    And now it's raining and snowing there, and the waterfalls are flowing. Only a few weeks later. Great news!

    It was still very beautiful even through all the falls were dry. I'd love to come back in the spring.
