    Default Folsom Lake

    It looks like we will have a decent boating season on the lake this year. Check out the water levels. 600 af currently. last year the lake peaked at only 633 in may/june. I went skiing yesterday and there is significantly more snow than last year at this time.We should get about 200 more af,....Hopefully more.

    How strict are they at Folsom with open headers? I know they used to be all over my dad 20 years ago. Got so bad he sold the tahiti and bought an outboard..

    yes it is looking good so far, since Feb 1 it has come up 52 feet yipee! What is disappointing is that they are still dumping alot. Hopefully they will NOT keep it low like last year for the spillway project going on. Caution to those considering the year pass.

    attached are a couple pics, one from night before last and the other is 3 days ago.
    1st is Browns, 2nd is the Hobie ramp

    I haven't heard of any restrictions , I know some boats out there with straight / open headers. No issues

    Cool to hear. Not sure how this new mandatory 92db or less motorsport law is going to affect us yet. I guess the fact my dad would be launching the boat with a beer in hand may have had something to do with the hassles. LOL....

    I've been runnin' my jet out there for the past couple of years and it has OT headers. I have really never had a problem but was stopped in Granite Bay last year one time and was told I needed to put in baffles. I've been launching at Folsom point ever since. I've never been stopped while on the lake.

    Not just Folsom, but there's a new law that just passed in California that states ALL motorsports must be under 92db with the exception to permitted drag racing events. That means boats, quads, motorcycles, airplanes whatever.. Even the weedwhip that wakes you up every Sunday for that matter. Thing that got me was I was at Oregon riding the dunes and got pulled with my quad for being too loud. 113db is a little loud, but when I asked the ranger to test his own stock 4 stoke Warrior, it was 96db out the factory pipe. Not sure how this will law will play out, but I think we may all be duckin and dodgin in the next couple years...

    I love the sound of a mean mill
    But,believe you me if others here think they can run open headers on Folsom they got another thing coming
    there is at least four different (bored stiff) LE agencys that patrol there and would love nothing better then to give you a coupon
    You might get lucky,but it is a crapshoot at best
    head out 45 minutes north to Camp Far West to run loud pipes
    I was out there last Saturday and CFW is full to the brim and they are having some extra hotboat events this year
    first sat of every month
    Easter Sunday event
    May1-3
    No Memorial Day IHBA Red Bluff races this year,so CFW might see more action

    Another 5 feet and they'll start draining it incase of flood from snow pack and we'll be just as bad off. OR, pump more south so the golf courses can be greened up for Arnold and company.
