Lake Como Adjusting to Lower Water Levels

A month ago, Como Lake was like this. Now, the water level is lower. (KLYQ Photo)

You can still swim at Lake Como northwest of Darby, and you can still launch your boats, but the water level has dropped steadily this week.

The Bitterroot National Forest has removed the boat dock on the boat launch area at the south side of the dam.

The swim lines (see photo) are gone, too, as the summer season winds down toward school time.

It’s still a great place to go on a hot, smoky day. And you need to remember that day use fees and camping fees are still in effect for the most popular recreation area for the Forest Service Northern Region. The fees are charged until Labor Day, September 3.

And of course, the Stage 1 Fire Restrictions are still in effect, even past Labor Day. That means no campfires, except in the approved fire rings inside a Forest Service campground. Again this week, an abandoned campfire has been found on the Bitterroot National Forest. This one was on the Stevensville Ranger District in the Sapphire Mountains on the east side of the valley.
