    Hi: I am currently looking for a lake that has a lake trout population problem in order to do some long term research to establish the effect of adding Cisco in large numbers to create a bottleneck in lake trout recruitment as was found by Leon Carl in lakes having Cisco and lake Whitefish in Ontario. In these lakes, the lake trout recruitment of lake trout was very low and thus their numbers were limited and there average size getting bigger because their average age was increasing. The reason for this condition is that lake trout eat lots of Cisco and Cisco tend to consume large amounts of lake trout spawning site juveniles. Check out conditions in Bear Lake (Utah) where lots of Cisco and Whitefish existed before lake trout were stocked in the 1930’s. AGP

    We are trying to determine how long we can leave our boat in the water. We have a cabin about 6 miles upstream of Albani Falls dam.

    When does the drawdown start?
    What is the plan for the drawdown rate?

    • Hello Andrew,
      Drawdown begins Sept 18th and should not go below 2060′ (2-foot difference from summer pool) before Oct 1. I hope that answers your question, but I am happy to answer further questions. Best, Molly

    Why are priest lake water levels intentionally being pushed up with the current levels above normal for this time of year? Our beach front as well as our neighbors is being destroyed by heavy erosion from unnatural elevated water levels. To make the situation worse, as we hit prime boating season the wakes created by all the boat activity exacerbates the beach erosion. We have lost a large amount of beach front over the past couple of years do to poor water management. I get the sense that lake front land owners really have no say in the matter, but I would like an explanation on current water levels as measured by USGS?

    Priest lake shore line has become a dumping ground for old docks. Literally dozens of old docks are tied off to the shore line. Are the dock builders just abandoning them, are the cabin owners doing it? They are not only a eye soar but are very dangerous! There are only a couple of businesses that build docks on the lake, a investigation needs to be done. There are more now within the last couple of days on the east side of Indian Creek bay, very large ones tied off. Call me if you want to see and hear more. I am a x marine deputy and have been disappointed in this situation for a while. Question is , is it ok to just abandon your dock and tie it off anywhere you want? And if a business is doing that should they be held responsible? If everyone is allowed to just tie off there docks we have a mess on our hands!! Thank you Michael Lyons 375 pinto point road Coolin Idaho

    • Hello Michael,
      I apologize for the delayed response. I thought I saw this in my email and then couldn’t find it! Yes, we have heard that abandoned docks are a problem on Priest Lake and it always seems to turn into a jurisdictional issue. I have thought that maybe a grant to help remove them would be an option. Please do send your number and either I or a board member will call you. Best, Molly
