    5 MPH Ban on Lake Lifted

    Boaters will be happy to know that the 5 MPH ban is no longer in effect on Folsom Lake. The lake has gotten high enough that boaters have less obstacles to contend with. Debris from recent storms and other unmarked hazards may still be around though, so boat with caution.

    We've Got a Full Lake

    It's hard to believe, but Folsom Lake is just about full. 935,000/977,000 acre feet of water is now in the lake, shortly after its levels seemed dire. Drought conditions are still in effect, as Oroville and Shasta are still low, but conditions are great for boating and fishing.

    This is something we haven't seen in a while: high demand for parking spots at Folsom Lake. With the high water levels, it's expected that parking will be hard to come by and wait times for launching will be long. Granite Bay, Rattlesnake Bar, Folsom Point, Browns Ravine and Peninsula boat ramps are open for boat launching.

    Lake Higher than Last Year

    Though it's not really saying much, the rains this year have made the lake surpass 2008's high water mark in March; the lake should continue to rise until May or June. The last time the lake was this high was July 2007, and should fill to about 80% with the rain we have. Other reservoirs are not so fortunate.

    The water issue is not going away... and the lack of rain is not helping. Folsom Lake is at 25% capacity, and the city will soon be in danger of losing its water supply. The City of Folsom will issue a Stage 3 Water Alert in the next few weeks, according to Mayor Miklos. Miklos announced this today in his State of the City address. Be prepared for drastic cuts.

    Folsom Lake a Mess of Debris

    The recent storms have brought more down the mountain than water - it's brought countless logs, sticks, and the occasional tire or refrigerator. The mess on Folsom Lake means a speed limit of 5 mph on the entire lake. Some logs are so heavy they are floating below the surface. The warm water may look inviting - but if you are a water skier, you should hold off for a bit more. On the plus side, the public is encouraged to come haul as much firewood out as you can handle!

    Slow Down on Oak Avenue!

    Oak Avenue, which has become a popular 2-lane road between Orangevale and Folsom, looks to find ways of slowing down traffic. Lowering the speed limit is an option (the current is 40 mph), as is traffic lights and more stop signs. Horseback riders, pedestrians, and commuters have used this road together, and when combined with speeding, leads to accidents. More is in the Bee.

    Alcohol Banned at Folsom Lake and Lake Natoma

    Recent incidents at Folsom Lake and Lake Natoma have forced authorities to take measures to prevent excessive alcohol use at the lake. Although boaters and campers will be allowed to drink on the lake, those who are on the shore or at the picnic grounds will no longer be able to drink alcohol. A spike in DUIs and drunk in public arrests have caused the ban of alcohol, which saw a significant increase in the 2002 season. More is in the Bee, and Fox 40 News.

    Park Fees Going Up in 2003

    If you are an avid visitor of Folsom Lake, it would be wise to purchase a yearly parks pass before January 1, when park fees rise from $35 to $67. State-wide budget cuts are to blame for the raise in park fees - the revenue will drive in $9 million for the next fiscal year. Boaters will also notice that there will be additional fees for launching, at $45 a year. Day use passes for Folsom Lake will rise to $5, and $4 more for launching a boat. More in the Bee.

    Folsom Lake Boating Season Drawing to a Close Soon

    It's September, and many Folsom boaters know what that means... the start of the end of Folsom's boating season. The lowering water levels at Folsom Lake show that soon it will be too shallow for recreational boating, such as water-skiing or wakeboarding. If you're not quite ready to let go of summer yet, you better head out to Folsom Lake - you only have a couple of weeks left!

    Folsom Looks to Increase Tourism

    Folsom has had little problems filling hotel rooms during the business week, however vacancy rates on the weekends are something the Folsom Tourism Bureau wants to improve upon. Folsom is looking to make the city more of a destination to residents of the Bay Area and other areas. Folsom's proximity to the gold country, rafting areas, as well as historical hotspots such as Sutter Street, the Folsom Powerhouse, and Folsom Lake to name a few, are making the city an attractive option on the weekends.
