    Default Classic Pedro

    Some vintage pictures of Don Pedro being filled after the second dam was built.
    The original dam built in 1921 is now ( when lake is full ) 250 feet below the surface

    Nice pics. Wish it is was as full as in the last pic. Full is 830' of elevation. As of yesterday it is 768.7. Still coming up but MID/TID charged the irrigation canals and is taking almost as much as is coming in. They are anticipating peak level this year at 785'. That is better than last year.

    Once again nice pics and thank you,

    Great pics thanks for sharing
    If we die tomorrow, the company that we are working for could easily replace us in a matter of hours. But the family & friends we leave behind will feel the loss for the rest of their lives.

    Nestled in the Sierra Nevada foothills due east of Modesto and 39 miles from Stockton. Lake Don Pedro may well be the answer for those recreation enthusiasts who are tired of dealing with the crowds often found at lakes closer to the large metropolitan areas. Offering 160 miles of shoreline with nearly 13,000 surface acres of water, there is plenty of water on which to enjoy your favorite water sport. Boating, fishing (for bass, trout, salmon, crappie, bluegill, and catfish), swimming, waterskiing, jetskiing, sailing and houseboating are some activites enjoyed at the lake.

    it's number 10 on the map-


    here's a closer look-



    cool pictures, thanks!
