The lake is also used for agricultural irrigation and recreational activities such as fishing, boating, and camping. The surrounding area is known for its scenic beauty and opportunities for outdoor recreation, and the lake is a popular destination for visitors seeking to escape the city and enjoy the natural beauty of the Sierra Nevada mountains.
