I live in Northern California specifically SF Bay Area. Looking for favorite lake recommendations and why you like the lake. I have a family and for personal reasons I choose not to frequent the Delta.

There are a number of lakes within reach of the bay area. All have their pros & cons. Some are full, most are down and yet others almost empty so make sure to check status on them before going. I can speak for the valley only and all have boatable water with Hogan Res being the lowest. They include;

San Jose Area:
Anderson Reservoir
Lexington Reservoir

Napa/Sonoma Area:
Lake Sonoma
Lake Mendocino
Lake Berryessa
Clear Lake

Central Valley Area:
Comanche Reservoir
New Hogan Reservoir
New Melones
