A gathering at Eagle Lake

The group tried out a new location for a rally at Eagle Lake this year. Instead of the campground at the north end of the lake 30 miles north of Susanville, a dispersed camping and fishing access area was chosen about 5 miles farther along Eagle Lake Road. The access road down the point is rather rough but the BLM does at least fill in the major holes.

Wednesday started with near record heat. Thursday and Friday were gusty as a front came through. Saturday was drizzle all day. Sunday was cool and quiet.

It’s the typical afternoon gusty winds that are blamed for the lack of water sports on the lake. It’s the alkaline waters that are considered the barrier to invasive fish species. It all makes for a special place.
