Drought in California – in pictures

Full water levels at the Bidwell Marina at Lake Oroville compared with much lower levels now.

This is lake Oroville's water level this year. This picture is important to me because every summer growing up, my family and I would spend so much time there. Looking at how low the water level is today is unfortunate, my family definitely feels remorse for the lake. With little rain this year, not much water came down from the mountain and the lake has suffered. There aren't an abundant amount of fish now, and less water means less room for boats to be on the lake.
