Dworshak Reservoir Nearly at Full Poolby Rich Landers
Spokesman-Review, July 1, 2011
BOATING -- Dworshak Reservoir is within 5 feet of full pool today. That's lower than normal for the Fourth of July holiday, but the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers is still leaving room for the unusually high, late snowpack to pour out of the mountains.
Officials flew the headwaters Tuesday and determined about 10 percent of the area was still snow covered.
"We'll be at about 1 foot from full pool (1,600 feet) on July 5, and anticipate reaching full pool by July 10," said Steve Hall, Corps reservoir manager.
All campgrounds and boat ramps are open.

Dworshak Dam Visitor Center is open seven days a week from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m.
