Right now our area is sitting pretty in terms of the amount of precipitation received to-date. The rivers and tributaries are rushing and full of water. Here’s proof from my stop yesterday by Indian Falls, in Plumas County near the Greenville Y. Not as impressive as my video from a couple of years ago when that river was flooded over the highway, but still an amazing sight!

Chester/Lake Almanor FEMA Speakers’ Event - 11-20-18

Approx 70-80 attendees

Organizations represented:
- Small Business Administration (SBA) Disaster Assistance
- Governor’s Office of Emergency Services
- Red Cross
- Salvation Army
- Plumas County Sheriff’s Office

See comments below for important information distributed, including aid through the SBA - not just for businesses, but ALSO for homeowners and renters. This aid is in the form of loans with a 2% interest rate, and with the first payment not due for 6 months. Those with insurance can also qualify while waiting for their insurance payments.

If you or someone you know was affected by the Camp Fire and has not yet gone to the Disaster Recovery Center (DNC) in Chico, PLEASE GO. If you need help getting there, reach out through the Wellness Center. We are told there are MANY organizations at the DNC, both public and private, who are all offering help to those who need it.

In the meantime, this Chamber Board has a formal process in place to provide temporary aid to the people in our area who are affected by the Camp Fire. This process was put into effect by the Chamber Board as events were unfolding to provide immediate assistance to evacuees. The process is being run with assistance from the Chester Wellness Center, managed by Plumas County.

If you or anyone you know is currently in the Lake Almanor basin and needs temporary assistance because they were affected by this tragic event, please ask them to go to:
Chester Wellness Center
372 Main Street
Chester, CA (next to Dollar General)


They will register with the Chester Wellness Center using the Lake Almanor Area Chamber of Commerce (LAAC) Registration Form.

Please bring photo ID if available; please come even if ID is unavailable.
Wellness Center staff are taking registration forms and helping identify current needs.

Needs are filled first from donated items located at the Chester Wellness Center, and then from donated funds.

As funds are available from our generous community and beyond, those funds are being used to support people in need in the Lake Almanor basin by:
1. Providing food through Dollar General and Holiday Market gift cards
2. Providing gas through a voucher program at Beacon
3. Providing clothing through a voucher program at Another Man's Treasure Thrift Store (if needed items are unavailable by donation at the Chester Wellness Center)
4. Helping with other needs as coordinated through the Chester Wellness Center

Thanks to everyone's amazing generosity, we currently have enough physical donations of clothing, etc. Please pause all physical donations, except the following can be brought to the Chester Wellness Center:
- Dollar General gift cards
- Holiday Market gift cards

PLEASE do not bring any items to the Wellness Center for donation EXCEPT the items in the list above (which will be updated as needs change). The staff and our volunteers are already spread extremely thin, and do not have the capacity to sort through used clothing / items. Thank you.❤

We are still collating data to get a more accurate count of the number of impacted people here in our area. As of close today, the Chester Wellness Center had received over 100 registrations accounting for at least 174 people, but that does not include a full count of family members who are sheltering with registrants. It also does not include the many evacuees who are staying in private residences and have not come to register at the Wellness Center. A rough estimate is that we have somewhere in the neighborhood of 200+ or more evacuees currently in our immediate area.

As of the afternoon on 11/18/18 (this will be updated here after the holiday):
Total funds collected: $17,442
Funds distributed: $8,202
Funds remaining: $9,241

100% of these donations are being used to directly aid the evacuees who are here in this community now.

The total collected includes emergency aid provided by the North Valley Community Foundation in the amount of $10,000, plus $7,442 generously donated by people both within and outside our local community. Because of all of you, we have been able to continue helping people in our area until we begin transitioning to official support services after a FEMA representative arrives on Tuesday, November 20. THANK YOU!! ❤

Monetary donations to support these efforts can be made to:
Lake Almanor Area Chamber (or LAAC) Camp Fire Fund
PO Box 1198
Chester, CA 96020
via PayPal: Visit and click on the link at the top of the page for the LAAC Camp Fire Fund.

Please note that because the Chamber is not a 501(c)3 organization, it is our understanding that these donations are unfortunately not tax-deductible. However, these funds are being used solely to aid people currently in the Lake Almanor basin and affected by the fire. Any funds remaining after we transition from providing immediate aid will return to the North Valley Community Foundation to distribute to other organizations in the area who are supporting these evacuees.

Lots of love goes out to the town of Paradise California tonight!

On Tuesday and Wednesday October 23rd & 24th AFA received 50,000 fertile Shasta Lake Rainbows from the Darrah Springs hatchery. This marks the 34th year that AFA volunteers have provided this service to Lake Almanor.
Thank you to our dedicated hardworking volunteers.
Special thanks to our partners California Fish & Wildlife and PG&E.
Thank you to Nick and his staff from Almanor Anchor, David and Judith from Lake Haven, Biologist Amber Mouser, Keith and his staff at Little Norway, Gregg Scott and the Chester Progressive, and most importantly the members, sponsors and businesses that support AFA.
If you are interested in seeing the fish pens and/or assisting in feeding please PM or call at 284-0861.

ROAD CLOSURE INFORMATION: Highway 89 will be closed beginning tomorrow morning May 7th, just north of the 147/89 intersections as construction crews will begin tearing down the spillway bridge. Highway 89 may be closed for up to four weeks as crews work on creating a bypass road to allow one-way traffic around the project. We are optimistic the road won’t be closed for the entire four weeks and I will post immediately when the bypass is open to traffic. If traveling north on 89 from Greenville, you will have to drive around the lake via 147 through Chester to access the closest public boat ramp @ Prattville.
Lake level remains high and water temps are rising. Insects are hatching, and the fish are gorging on bugs. With all the natural feed in the water trout have been selective and difficult to catch. What works one day might not work the next. You have to throw the entire bag at them to get any action going. Switching from fast trolling speedy shiners at 3 MPH to slow trolling crawlers at 1 MPH and everything in between. When you find something that works stick with it.
The recent warm weather has the water surface temps fluctuating between the lows 50’s to 60 degrees. Our weather will be perfect the next seven days with highs in the mid seventies and overnight lows in the forties.
Most boats are targeting fish on the North end of the lake between Almanor West and Bayley Creek in water up to 35 feet deep which is typical for this time of year. Bass fishermen are targeting fish throughout the lake with reports of smallies up to five pounds being caught. The females are in their spawning mode with full bellies and should be returned to sustain our bass fishery.
Not much shore fishing happening right now with Hamilton Branch being your best shot of picking up a fish or two from shore. Fly fishing activity has been slow as well.

April 29th
For the past few days we have been experiencing some unsettled weather with wind, cooler temps and rain. The lake level rose slightly this past week and appears to be settling, for all practical purposes Almanor is full. Water is a few feet from the black top at the Canyon Dam boat launch.
Water temps fluctuated this past week with surface temps ranging between the mid-forties to upper-fifties. Lots of bass fishermen on the water these days and the action has been good to very good at times. The smallies are in the pre-spawn mode and aggressive. The flats and points are producing bass up to five pounds.
Trout fishing has been fair with lots of boat traffic on the north end of the lake. Trollers are picking up fish fast trolling hardware. Red/gold continues to be the color of choice with Red Dot Frog and Wonder Bread also producing fish. We have been trolling at 2.5-3 MPH and experimenting different baits and speeds when the bite dies. As water temps rise and the fish hunker down in deeper water it will be time to slow your presentations.
Bank fishing has been slow at best with limited access and even less fishing pressure. The general stream opener for Deer Creek, Mill Creek & Susan River open up this weekend. Any stream flowing into the Lake Almanor opens Memorial Weekend, which will give us fishermen an alternative when the wind kicks up on Almanor.
I wrote in last week’s report that highway 89 would be closed beginning May 1st just north of the 147 & 89 junction for construction crews to create a bypass road around the bridge replacement project. That closure won’t take place until May 7th now. The road could be closed for up to four weeks! If coming from the south on 89 you will have to drive around the lake to get to the Canyon Dam boat launch. We have been assured that crews will do everything in their power to get the road opened ASAP. The bridge replacement project is scheduled through October. Stay tuned for updates!
