Lake Level

Post by CanuckBob on Sat Jul 22, 2017 11:49 am

I find it interesting that the lake appears to be rising so quickly for this time of the year.  This typically occurs when they open the dams late in the season however there are no signs of the lirio which usually accompany the dam openings. Have they found a way to stop the lirio from entering the lake?

We got lots of lirio on the west side of the pier in Chapala. City workers and volunteers have been cleaning it up all week. The latest water management agreement requires the upstream dams to open and let water flow into the Lerma river earlier in the season rather than wait until they are completely full.

This morning: Lirio appearing here and there. I suspect it came along with the extra water.

You're right about the lake level rising quickly CBob! In fact we're ahead this month compared with other years.

I'll be seeing ya down there soon. We need to get some of those black bass up from Chapala. Maybe we should try the weedy area on the east side of the pier?

I added the link to the "QuickJump Menu" to the government site which shows the current level of the lake and compares it to the previous two years.

Yes, and you will notice the lake level is about 3 weeks ahead of where it was at this point last year. Hopefully the trend continues however as stated above if it is due to early dam openings then there could be less flowing down later in the season.

The lirio continues to accumulate in Chapala despite efforts to clean it up. But please don't tell MC. He'll insist that Chapala is hoarding all the lirio and insist that Ajijic get its fair share.
