Our GALLERY is our top bookmarked page on our website(s). It is also the only photo gallery available any where that includes every season all year long at Eagle Lake Ca. Since we live in Spalding at the northwest shore of Eagle Lake’s middle basin, we have the opportunity to be here to take photographs and share our adventures so our viewers can keep up with our wonderful Eagle Lake. Many of our visitors are not able to come up between January 1 and opening weekend but they still wish they could. Our aim is to bring you here any day of the week and any time of the year. Consider us your “Virtual Eagle Lake”. Our photos and pages are copyright protected & fully registered with the Library of Congress. We are not affiliated with any agency and we are not a tourism website. We have no financial gain in what we do.

  • 2012 Eagle Lake Boat Ramps

This album contains ongoing photos of the launching conditions at Eagle Lake. On April 10, the elevation of the lake topped out only 5 1/8 inches higher than it was December 1, 2011. As of May 15, after Pine Creek briefly flowed four different times the elevation was 5096 ft 3 1/2 inches. We will lose around 1+ inch by opening day unless we see passing showers that may help us hold on. With several years worth of data on evaporation rates, it will be interesting to see if there is any differce since the Bly Tunnel valves were closed (Feb 2). As the lake elevation drops this summer we will see historical low water levels as we did in 2010. We will be launching as long as possible in Spalding but fear we will all be resigned to using the new ramp at the south end of the lake by fall if not before. See Lake Conditions and Ramp Condition pages for more details. We would rather you know what you are getting into than to have you find out by surprise ... costly ones at that. This is our way of letting you see the conditions of the usable launch ramps for yourselves. Photos are taken every week or so for the main functioning ramps.
