The cold water bubbler at Croton has been in effect since July 17th. Dave Cole and staff only use it to keep the water in the 66-68-degree F range when they need to. It is a night time draw and they have two pump areas to work from. They are trying not to deplete the cold water too quickly since we may be in for some hot weather ahead in August. So far , their studies are pleased with the efforts so far.
On another note, the shorelines are loaded with fry steelhead that have hatched this spring. Something you don't see after July first when the waters hit the 70's...this can be good!
