A picturesque, narrow, fingered lake featuring fine fishing, low speed zones, and boating camping in the heart of wine country. Warm Springs Dam impounds the canyons of Dry Creek, Warm Springs Creek, Yorty Creek, and Cherry Creek to form 2,700-acre Lake Sonoma. These narrow fingers have no-ski and 5-m.p.h. zones desirable for paddle craft. Avoid the southern portions during water ski seasons. Lake Sonoma summers are hot with temperatures averaging in the high 90s F. Winter days can be cool, foggy, and wet. Submerged trees still stand in the upper reaches of the lake to provide habitat for fish. As a result, the lake holds largemouth bass, Sacramento perch, channel catfish, and sunfish.
