The lake level was near or at an all time low of 398.6 feet in October of 2016. Experts said it would take years for the lake to fill and the famous Glory Hole wasn’t even predicted to flow again in the foreseeable future. On January 28 of this year the lake was only at 427.3 feet. Last Friday it was officially full and over flowing at 440.01… It’s been 10 years since that’s happened. People come from all over to see this big drain hole and the traffic has been a nightmare but the merchants in Winters love it. If you want to venture up to see it do it during the week and watch out for landslides!
