Link River flows
Flows out of Upper Klamath Lake spiked Tuesday, but the change in outflows is only temporary and should not have a major effect on lake levels, local officials say.
Maintenance work on a fish ladder at Link River Dam required a temporary increase in outflows, said Kevin Moore, spokesman with the Bureau of Reclamation’s Klamath Basin area office.
Flows at Link River Dam were about 1,030 cubic-feet-per-second Tuesday and Wednesday, up from about 300 cfs in recent weeks.
Upper Klamath Lake levels
The elevation of Upper Klamath Lake Tuesday was 4,142.64 feet. The lake level on that date was 4,143.05 feet in 2011, a full-water year, and 4,140.33 feet in 2010, a drought year.
Snowpack in the Klamath Basin Wednesday was 92 percent of historical average for that date.
