Bucks Lake is a reservoir in Northern California that serves as a source of hydroelectric power and as a recreational destination. The lake was created in 1928 with the construction of a hydroelectric dam on Bucks Creek. The dam is operated by Pacific Gas and Electric and provides power for the surrounding communities. The lake is also fed by several small creeks and streams, as well as snowmelt from the surrounding mountains. The snowpack is monitored by the California Department of Water Resources and is an important source of water for agriculture in the area. Recreation activities on the lake include fishing, boating, and camping. The lake is also home to several species of fish, including trout and bass.
