Water level is dropping fast!

It has been just three weeks since I posted about the lake being down 47 feet from the crest. Today the lake level is down about 67 feet. They are releasing more water into the Sacramento River right now for the Salmon run so the lake level is dropping a little faster. There is not much snow left to melt to increase the inflow to the lake.
I have included this link from Google maps to show the location of Beaver Island from Bridge Bay Road. The cars and trucks with the boat trailers are parked where it should be under water by some 20 feet or so.

The next picture is from the Packer's Bay boat ramp area. You can see the lines on the bank where the water levels are marked. It was quite early in the morning and the sun was not where I wanted it to be for this picture.
