Another 6 inches on the upper watershed (Jameson/Gibraltar) would do the trick. The current spill or release rate will bring up the Cachuma percentage, but not significantly. No rain forecast at this time.

The 6" we just had there only brought it up 3% and that includes the release from Gibraltar. So no, it would not even come close to doing the trick.

Guess reading the graph is not that accurate. Officially today, the 18th it's at 35.3 %.

We were up on East Camino Cielo this past weekend, and both Jameson and Gibraltar appeared full, meaning more runoff flowing towards Cachuma. Hope we get more rain!

Both were still below 80% last weekend. As of yesterday Jameson rose to 85% and they opened the gates at Gibraltar when it hit 77.9 % and released water for awhile down the Santa Ynez River. As of today Gibraltar is at 100.5 %.

While Cachuma isn't likely to fill up at least the percentage numbers should increase.

The latest graph they show looks like its up to about 37%.

What is today's reading at cachuma in terms of percentage full? I see amounts but not percentage. Earlier this week it was still at 31%.

This morning it was at 32.3%, and I heard second-hand that Gibralter is spilling, so that should increase. Here's the county site where info is posted after each storm: http://www.countyofsb.org/uploadedFiles/pwd/Content/Water/Documents/rainfallreport.pdf

Lake Cachuma will be filling up from this last storm. Finally!

Thanks for the photos! We hiked down the Arroyo Burro trail to the river a few months ago when it was bone dry - this is much better.
