NOTICE: Central Rivers Power, LLC, is the privately owned dam on Fish Creek that controls the lake levels within Saratoga Lake.  Saratoga Lake has a very large watershed coming into the lake, 244 square miles.
There are many factors involved with the delicate operation of the dam.  Beyond recreation, downstream community safety is an issue with flooding, which may factor at times with maintaining a higher lake level in the body of Saratoga lake to protect other communities.  One inch of rain can raise the lake level three inches making the water level difficult to control for the dam operator.  Water quality, lake access and weed control are also taken into consideration.  With climate changes occurring bringing more intense weather conditions such as superstorms and drought periods, consistent water levels are even more difficult to maintain.
 Ideal summer water level is 203.3. 
At the end of October, the dam is opened, you will begin to see the water level in the lake then begin to lower.  There is no winter water level to be maintained.  Please take all of this into consideration when thinking of the lake level.
