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.
