***BOAT LAUNCHING AT MOCCASIN POINT***

Good news for those who have shallow draft boats and like to launch at Moccasin Point! The slowly rising water level at the lake has allowed the unimproved low water launch at Moccasin Point Recreation Area to be reopened. This launch area can be accessed by driving from the entrance station to the regular boat launch ramp, and then taking the roadway to the left at the base of the regular launch ramp.  Boat launching is also still available at the Fleming Meadows Campground.

**ATTENTION BOATERS**
Today's National Weather Service Flash Flood Warning for the Rim Fire area (Tuolumne River Canyon) coupled with the precipitation forecast in the area has triggered closure of the debris booms in the Tuolumne River arm of Don Pedro Lake. The closure is located just upstream of Moccasin Bay. There is no estimate of when the boom will be reopened at this point in time, but we will post it here when it does occur.
