May 17, 2019 : Shuswap Lake Update

Last week's hot weather has quickly melted down the snow in medium and higher mountains and pushed lake levels up by over 4 inches each day. With 3 inches today it is now starting to slow down, giving the lake the chance to drain out some of its water. The cooler and partially wet weather can be expected to continue for the rest of this month and subsequently will lead to one of the lowest lake peak on record.
Boat traffic on the lake has noticeably increased today; despite a rather wet and cooler May long weekend in the forecast. Some sandbanks are still close below the surface; boaters should be careful when approaching the shoreline. Expect some waiting lines on public boat launches; especially in the morning and evening hours.
Most creeks are still carrying lots of water. It's the best time of the year to visit the local waterfalls around the lake.
