RESERVOIRS — The level of Lake Roosevelt was 1232.5 feet at noon today and will continue declining about 1.5 feet a day through the rest of the month to reach the flood control elevation of 1220.2. 

The plan could change, since there's still an above-average snowpack remaining in the upper Columbia River drainages.

 Inflows into Lake Roosevelt are expected to increase this week.

See the Roosevelt current lake level chart.

Spring Canyon and Seven Bays will be the ony sure bets for boat launching by Sunday.

Check here for the minimum boat launch elevations to determine which are out of water.
