Repairs Force Tripod Reservoir Drawdown - August 22, 2016
Tripod Reservoir, near Smiths Ferry, will soon be drawn down as Fish and Game crews begin repairs on a failed emergency water control valve. The drawdown and repair work will begin in early September.

“We normally drop the reservoir’s water level by about two feet and not until October,” Fish and Game recreation site maintenance foreman Dennis Hardy noted. “The repairs will require the water level to be dropped by at least six feet, perhaps more.” The extent of the repair work will remain unknown until crews can inspect the faulty valve.

If repairs go as planned and spring rains are close to normal, Tripod Reservoir should be full in time for the 2017 spring fishing season
