Members of the media surround Department of Water Resources’ Chief of California Cooperative Snow Surveys Frank Gehrke as he measures snow levels at Phillips Station on Thursday, January 30, 2014. In part, the resulting outlook led state officials to halt fishing on numerous streams. Gehrke said the recent snowfall may likely be gone by next week, and that it is unlikely that California’s snow level will recover to normal levels by the end of the season.
