|Boater Alert – Diablo Lake Elevation Change (Sep. 15-23, 2020)|
To accommodate maintenance at Ross Dam, Seattle City Light must lower the elevation of Diablo Lake from Sep. 15-23, 2020. Due to heavy silt deposits present at this lowered level, the boat launch at Colonial Creek will be out of commission. We apologize for any inconvenience.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Skagit Tours have been cancelled for the 2020 season. We apologize for the inconvenience.
