Idaho Power refilling Brownlee Reservoir

By Jayson Jacoby / The Baker City Herald

All major boat ramps are usable now

Idaho Power no longer has any flood control requirements for Brownlee Reservoir, and the company is slowly refilling the popular waterway in eastern Baker County.

Brownlee, which was more than 20 feet below full earlier this month, is 9 feet below full now.

At that level all the major boat ramps are usable.

Idaho Power plans to have Brownlee at full pool around the middle of June. The company said in a press release that is refilling the reservoir slowly to protect bass and crappie egg nests.

Water level information is available online at www.idahopower.com or by calling 1-800-422-3143.
