Clear Lake Algae


Because Clear Lake is shallow and warm, algae forms in the lake. When it is trapped at the surface and dies, it forms unsightly mats or slicks. They can be a hazard to boat motor intakes. Usually the blooms occur in spring and late summer and only affect certain parts of the lake. The areas most often affected include

  • Clearlake Oaks
  • The town of Clearlake's shoreline
  • Cache Creek area

Lake County Environmental Health: Blue-Green Algae

Lake County Clean Water Program


The Lake County Clean Water Program provides Public Education and Outreach to help restore and protect the beneficial uses of Clear Lake.

Boat Inspections

All registered boats are required to have an Inspection Sticker before being launched in Lake County waters. This is to protect the lakes from invasive quagga and zebra mussels. For complete information, including the application process and inspection station locations, see
Lake County Invasive Mussel Prevention Program.

Inspections are not required for canoes, kayaks, car-top boats, float tubes, rafts, wind surfers/boards, boogey boards, nonmotorized paddle boats, and nonmotorized sail boats that are eight feet or less in length.
