June 15, 2019: The bottom line is that Shasta Lake is FULL….VERY FULL.   It is at the top and it is staying at the top for now.

Unlike previous years, where the lake starts to drop after memorial day, we are enjoying a full lake still now in the middle of June.

With the heavy snow pack and all the rain this year, we believe the lake level will be higher at any given point this Summer than past summers.

Come enjoy real LAKEFRONT at the Shasta Lakeshore Retreat.

For the fourth year in a row, Shasta Lake has filled to  the top.   Shasta Lake is not only the largest lake in California, it is also the main reservoir for much of the rich crops in the central valley of the state.  As with other reservoirs, the lake level will vary through the year.  Normally the lake is at its lowest level in November before the rains and then increases to its highest level normally by Memorial Day each year after which it slowly drops through the summer/fall/early winter.  Although both our homes are rare lakefront, the distance from the house might go from a stone’s toss to several hundred yards or more.  Fortunately, unlike many homes on inlets of Shasta Lakes, we always have water and water views in front of us even at its lowest levels after four years of drought in 2015.
