Dam Fall Opening Date November 1

The Watchic Lake dam will be opened on or about November 1 for the winter. During the fall, the dam is opened to the number one position to slowly lower the level for the winter. The exact opening date may vary a few days due to weather.  In mid-November the dam will be set in the full open position. Winter water levels (about 18 inches below full pond) should be achieved by mid to late November, depending on weather. Plan accordingly. Click or touch here for more information on the dam.
