BISHOP, CA (May 10, 2019) – The Los Angeles Department of Water and Power (LADWP) announced today that Klondike Lake will be open to public boating seven days a week beginning Friday, May 24, 2019 through Monday, September 30, 2019.
Precautions are still being taken to guard against invasive mussels, so all motorized watercraft must be inspected before being launched into Klondike Lake. Inspections will be done only at the lake entrance gate during a one-hour period.
Access for motorized watercraft being transported by car, truck and/or trailer will be allowed daily for a one-hour period between 9 a.m. and 10 a.m. in order to accommodate inspections. After watercraft have been inspected and granted access, visitors can enjoy the lake for as long as they want that day. Please note, recreational users with smaller, non-motorized watercraft that are not transported by car, truck and/or trailer can access the lake at any time.
In order to access Klondike Lake, boaters must pre-purchase a daily use inspection receipt or a new season pass at the LADWP Administrative Office located at 300 Mandich Street in Bishop open Monday through Friday, 7:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. Klondike Lake inspectors will not handle any sales or cash at the gate.
