Water Levels: The Southern Sierra is hovering around 50% of April 1 snowpack; levels for the events should be fine. The bad news is that some of the sections of the Kern that have diversions might not be very good; the good news is that the Kaweah and Tule nearby thrive on lower water.

For some Tule pictures click Southern Sierra Outdoors: Uppers

For some Kaweah Pictures click Southern Sierra Outdoors: More Kaweeeeeah Action

Yeah, we are all suffering. I was just in winter park last week; 70 degrees and sitting on the deck drinking Modus Hoperandi was nice, but not good for the end of March.
