Merced River at Bagby Bridge

On Thursday, February 16, 2017 Skip Skyrud was at the Bagby Recreation Area and captured this image of the Merced River flowing into Lake McClure under the Highway 49 north bridge.

As of yesterday, Lake McClure is at 179% of the historic average for the lake at this time of the year and is at 90% of total capacity.

Below are photos of the Merced River on January 20, 2016 and January 12, 2017.
