RESERVOIRS — From all indications, the Lake Roosevelt drawdown will continue into May with a possibility of lake elevations going to 1220 feet or lower. That's grim for anglers who will see another year of fish pouring over the dam and out of the reservoir. Full pool is 1290 feet above sea level.
Expanses of bare shoreline will be showing in upcoming weeks.
As lake level goes down, boat launch ramps will begin to close with all ramps being closed if the elevation goes below 1222 feet.
In order to prevent archaeological and resource damage, driving on the drawdown is not allowed, Lake Roosvelt National Recreation Area officials say.
