    Default Berryessa Question

    I've been watching Lake Berryessa level since winter. Does anyone know why the level is basically the same as last summer in spite of the winters rain? I recently spoke with a person who had a mobile home at Monticello before the BLM eviction, he told me in all the years they were there, the lake seldom changed from full in the spring to from about 8' to 10' down at the lowest point, why the big change?

    Not sure either, iv seen pics from late last year and pics from early april it didnt look like there was much of a change looking at the water lines. The cove we usually camp in at steele park normally has atleast 15-20ft of water it has been down to 5-7ish the past 2 years and the pics i seen last month didnt look any diffrent either

    I have seen it with water totaly gone in the last bay at Monticello in the 80's. I was told that the water level was so low at one point you could see the roof tops of the town of Monticello. Which was there before they flooded the valley?
    Dont know about recently.
