The lake dropped 2.75 inches last week in spite of 3.5 inches of new snow. Ice reformed enough that there was a group skating on Feb 21. Ice fishermen are being careful about not venturing far from shore, but are catching fish.

Water content of snowpack on Mt. Spokane is slightly above the 10 year average, but low level snow-especially on sun exposed slopes- is very low. I'm still guessing that we will fill or nearly fill the lake this year, but don't have much confidence about that guess.
