It's been a long wait on the Lower Sac... and I have some good news.
Shasta Lake around the dam area is showing much improved water clarity. I was mountain biking up by the dam the other day and noticed the water is FINALLY beginning to clear. Water conditions on the lake at Centimudi are currently green with visibility two about 2' or slightly better.
The water coming out of Keswick is still brown/green and the river down through Redding is still pretty dirty - with just a slight shade of green to muddy brown. But we may be turning the corner!
I'm gonna be out there very soon floating and fishing and will hopefully have some good news to share. I think we have a ways to go for it to be "great" but at least things are showing some slight improvement. Shasta Lake is looking a lot better than a week ago.
