"FREE FISHING DAY"

Mark your calendars to come fishing at Don Pedro Lake on September 2nd! The Don Pedro Recreation Agency's vehicle day use fee will be waived for anglers that day in conjunction with the California Department of Fish and Wildlife's "Free Fishing Day" - no fishing license will be required (https://www.wildlife.ca.gov/Licensing/Fishing/Free-Fishing-Days)! It's the perfect opportunity to encourage a non-angler to try out the sport!

The old Don Pedro Dam still exists at Don Pedro Lake. Some 220’ under the water of a full lake, the old Don Pedro Dam is 1.5 miles upstream from the current dam’s location. Completed in 1923, it was, at the time, the world’s largest concrete gravity dam. The lake created by the old dam, with its storage capacity of 289.000 acre feet, was only 14% of the capacity of the current lake.
