Current Conditions...
« on: May 07, 2012, 05:27:42 PM »
Rock Creek Lake went ice-free on Sunday, May 6.  The road to Mosquito Flat is OPEN.  ALL campgrounds will be open for Memorial Weekend for sure...probably sooner.  This was the third driest winter since they started keeping records, according to Jim King, 1977 the driest, and 2007 the second driest.

It's summer!!

Everyone seems to forget about 2007.

Our beloved creek will be just a trickle of water come the end of the season.  I remember 2007  darn little water running thru the creek

Will DFG stop stocking the creek if it does get low?  Did they stop in 2007?

Unfortunately " It is what it is", and at least it isn't the worst! Looks like June and July will be the best months. After that just enjoying the mountains and adjusting to the water levels will be the reality. It will still be a summer filled with memories.
