Bear River At Camp Far West Dam

Reservoir Levels Weather Hydrology

Bear River is a major tributary of the Feather River in California. The Camp Far West Dam, which was completed in 1963, is located on the river and provides flood control and water supply for irrigation and municipal uses. The hydrology of the area is strongly influenced by the Sierra Nevada mountains, which provide snowpack during the winter that melts and feeds the river during the summer. The river also receives significant surface flow from the foothills and agricultural fields in the surrounding area. The river supports a variety of recreational activities, including fishing, boating, and camping, as well as providing water for agriculture. However, the river is also impacted by pollution and habitat loss, and efforts are underway to protect and restore its ecosystem.
