Gerle Lake is a natural lake situated in the Sierra Nevada Mountains of California. The lake has a fascinating history, dating back to the early 1900s when it was used as a reservoir for supplying water to the town of Auburn. The hydrology of the lake is mainly supplied by surface flow from the Bear River Canal and snowmelt from the surrounding mountains. The lake is also fed by several small streams that flow into it. It is a popular recreational spot, particularly for fishing, boating, and camping. The lake is also used for agricultural purposes, with several orchards and vineyards surrounding the area. The water quality of Gerle Lake is considered to be high, and it serves as an important habitat for several species of fish and wildlife.
