Camanche Reservoir in California is a man-made lake located in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada Mountains. It was created in 1963 when the Camanche Dam was built across the Mokelumne River. The reservoir is used for hydroelectric power generation, irrigation, and recreation. Its hydrology is primarily dependent on snowmelt from the surrounding mountains and surface flow from the Mokelumne River. The river is also a significant source of water for agricultural purposes in the region. Recreational activities such as boating, fishing, and camping are popular at the reservoir, which has several marinas and campgrounds. The lake is stocked with a variety of fish, including bass, trout, and catfish. The Camanche Reservoir is an important source of water and recreation for the local community.
