Just over an inch of rain here at 2:30 p.m. but the lake dropped 1/16 inch for the week. It's still raining and I expect the lake to rise this week with all the rain and snow predicted for the area.

Ice is still thick and solid and I see one ice fisherman in his tent shelter on the lake in front of Bronze Bay.

It is too early to be certain, but my predicition is still that the lake will not fill this year. Water equivalent of the Mt. Spokane snowpack is just 85% of normal after 10 inches of new snow today.
