Clear Lake Closed to Motorized Boats
Public Information Release
February 14, 2017
LAKE COUNTY, Calif. (February 14, 2017) – Boaters and residents on Clear Lake need to be aware due to the continued high water levels and potential for damage to shoreline properties, the Board of Supervisors today approved an Urgency Ordinance immediately closing the lake to all motorized vessels and other motorized vehicles except for the Lake County Sheriff and California Department of Fish and Wildlife. The temporary closure will remain in place for no more than 60 days or until the Board takes further action. Kayaks, paddled craft and wind-powered vessels may continue to utilize the lake.
The public will be notified when the boating restriction is lifted.
For more information contact the Sheriff’s Department at (707) 262-4200 or Water Resources Department at (707) 263-2344.
What is Rumsey?
The natural level of Clear Lake has been maintained by the Grigsby Riffle, which is a rock sill located at the confluence of Cache and Seigler Creeks near Lower Lake. The natural low water level of Clear Lake was established as "Zero Rumsey" and all subsequent lake measurements are based on this elevation.
Zero Rumsey is equivalent to 1318.256 feet (1929 NGVD).

First Time Sailors
The Konocti Bay Sailing Club welcomes first time sailors but we have a few suggestions to make your maiden voyage more enjoyable and safe. We would encourage would be sailors to sail on Wednesdays with the OSIRs. Skippers have more time to teach sailing and the pace is slower.
