Lake Almanor is a large reservoir. The reservoir has a capacity of 1,308,000 acre feet (1.613×109 m3) and a maximum depth of about 90 feet (27 meters). It is formed by Canyon Dam on the North Fork of the Feather River, as well as Benner and Last Chance Creeks, Hamilton Branch, and various natural

springs. The lake is also a popular recreation area, with fishing, boating, water skiing, swimming and camping available. The California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment has issued safe eating advice based on mercury for fish caught from Lake Almanor. The reservoir was named for the three daughters of Guy C. Earl, Vice President of Great Western Power: Alice, Martha and Eleanor. The present dam, which more than doubled the lake's size, was constructed by Great Western Power from 1926 to 1927.
