According to the website folsomlakemarina.com the 5 mile per hour restriction is back.

The lake has been rising at about 1 foot per day. There was a ring of debris around the lake which has probably floated up again.

Of course, last time it was in effect it really did not matter to many folks. I even asked one bozo on a jetski and he said the ranger told him the restriction is for liabilty purposes and he could go as fast as he wanted.

I hope he got a name, it would make the judge laugh, and judges need to laugh more.

Empire is correct, the 5mph is in effect. I was just at the lake to see the water level and conditions and the ramps at Granite Bay are a real mess. I spoke to a Ranger and asked about the no ticket comment and he said absolutely you would get a ticket. In fact his quote was "no leniency...if you are on plane you will get a ticket"
Good luck,

Fished Folsom on Sun. Huge rafts of debris. Didn't stop 4 of those huge pickle fork off shore type boats from takin a couple of speed laps. They didn't stay long. Probably ran low on $3.50 gal. fuel. Don't think the price mattered much to em. Must be nice.
