Sad story that gets repeated all too often. I started boating on the delta and stopped five years ago and will never return. In Norcal we are blessed with so many clean lakes I don't miss the craziness of the delta. We are in the bay area with a 2014 X-30. Your family has an open invitation to float a lake with us this summer.

I kind of have the opposite story. Boated the lakes for a few years and then found the Delta. Yes, some times and some places you have to be really careful but typically those times and places can be avoided. After September 1, you pretty much get it to yourself on weekday evenings. Same with Sunday evenings. Midweek is never too bad. You just need to be really choosy where you go on mid day sat-sun during summer; myself I just avoid that time.

This year is going to awfully difficult on the lakes with the drought and low water conditions. Most likely going to make the Delta more interesting with many choosing it over lakes this summer.

Even the lakes get kind of crazy mid summer - Don Pedro, Berryessa, New Melones. Other lakes are not so bad but at higher elevation and/or farther away. Problem being is that most of our lakes are actually reservoirs = bad news this year with the drought.

What are your favorite lakes? I use to really like the Stanislaus River arm of New Melones.

My favorite lakes are Sonoma with boat in camping, Anderson because it's close and San Luis because it's big and we have it all to ourselves except for a few fishing boats. The lakes all have as much water in them as last year even with the drought. At least these three. The other lakes we go to as well are Berryessa, Clear Lake, San Antonio and Shaver Lake and Tahoe in the Sierras.

Have you guys tried The Meadow's northeast of Locke? Quite beautiful, and quite a bit different.

I grew up in NorCal and was a kid when they built Lake Sonoma. I learned to ski at my uncles house on Clear Lake. I must say my favorite one is Lake Shasta. That lake is so big you can always find a place with calm water.

I will try the Meadows. Thanks for the suggestion. I love Shasta. I wish it wasn't so far away. What a great place to grow up. Wish I did. Washington State has lots of lakes...but they are cooold

Can't find "the Meadow's" using google maps.

Love Shasta Lake. We skipped this coming year due to the low water but went there end of July the prior three years.

Lake Sonoma looks good. I'll have to check that one out some time. I like to boat camp.

Some day I want to camp at Trinity Lake with the boat for a week. I can only imagine that there really is not much of a crowd there given that it is pretty far off the beaten path there; I have gone backpacking in that area and the relative isolation is nice. I've talked with someone that I met at a party/sale that my local dealer throws each spring and he says it's awesome.
