BOAT RAMPS AT EMIGRANT AND APPLEGATE LAKES HAVE BEEN CLOSED BY PARK OFFICIALS DUE TO LOW WATER LEVELS IN THE LAKES. KOBI 5 REPORTS THAT EMIGRANT LAKE IS AT JUST 12% OF ITS FULL CAPACITY. THE U.S. ARMY CORPS OF ENGINEERS SAY THAT APPLEGATE LAKE IS ABOUT 11 FEET LOWER THAN THEY’D LIKE IT TO BE. THE FRENCH GULCH BOAT RAMP HAS BEEN CLOSED FOR THAT REASON. THE HOPE IS FOR HEAVY SNOW AND RAIN THIS WINTER.
