Let me figure this one...Or, can anyone help?
The winter of 2011-12 amounted to one of the five (5) LEAST amount of historical-average, precipitation years (snow and water). The previous winter of 2010-11 resulted in the 3rd MOST.
So here is my dilemma. Why is the water release out of Lake Tahoe currently 36% more than the historical average at the Tahoe City site? Right now the release is 340 cfs...average being 250 cfs.
The poor trout are definitely not comfortable relative to the warm water being released off the top of the lake...way too warm water equals unhappy trout...not to mention us fly anglers.
There has always been local...admittedly biased...unfounded and speculative guessing as to who may be "in bed with whom."
Can anyone educate me or continue the speculation?
