    shaver is more northern I think. If you bring something other than a pontoon everyone thinks your crazy. The altitude kills you. We still go a couple times a year. The inlaws have anice pad In Auberry. You'll like it.

    Thanks for the info. We only hit shaver for the fourth of july when we lived there a few years ago. We mainly stick to a few other smaller puddles up there. Are there any other good spots you guys would recomend a little further south?

    Reddinger Lake is the hang out for hot boats. Not water cops. It's a little lower than Shaver and just about the same distance from Auberry.

    Don't know about Visalia. From Fresno there's Jack's Resort on the Fresno Slough, about 20-25 mi. west of Fresno on Hwy 180. No water cops!

    When I worked for Edison we used to go up there once a year to work. Focking awesome place. Shaver Lake, Edison Lake, Huntington, Florence Lake, Mammoth Pool, Mono Hot Springs, Bass Lake, Auberry, even Clovis isn't that bad...all beautiful areas. Kaiser pass in the winter isn't much fun. I've been back on the Miracle Mile in June/July with 7' of snow on the sides of the roads.

    There is a reason they call that God's Country...nothing like it anywhere on the planet as far as I'm concerned.

    That's pretty much why were moving back. The camping, backpacking, boating and outdoor recreation is unparalleled. Its still california but its kinda detached from mainstream civilazation and some of my best memories with my wife are up there

    I've been living at Shaver about 50% of the time for a couple of years. During the week in the summer, when it is 100*+ in the valley, Shaver is a pretty great place--80*, perfect water temps, clear air, and just a few fishing boats. Yes, the altitude makes a difference--they say you lose 3% for every 1000'--my Sanger runs at 4200 rpms at Shaver, 4800 at sea level, but the atmosphere more than makes up for the lost performance. On weekends it gets pretty busy with jet skis and wake board boats--mainly because the lake is so inviting and really isn't that big, but those weekdays are a lot of fun.

    Fresno is about midway between socal and norcal, but I think most of us relate more to norcal. The big question is "Where do people who live at Shaver Lake go for vacation?" When you get settled, give me a call--we can talk about how lucky we are to live in such a beautiful area.

    Oh, by the way, for everyone else reading this, I made it all up. The water is too cold, and my boat will hardly plane out due to the elevation. Don't even bother coming up--you'll probably hate it.
