Camanche Reservoir, also known as Lake Camanche, was created with the completion of Camanche Dam in 1963. The communities of Camanche, Lancha Plana, and Poverty Bar were flooded by the creation of this reservoir. The region was originally settled during the gold rush in to three separate towns. As the gold rush slowed, these towns population began to decrease. Settlers from Iowa named the largest remaining town “Camanche” after a town in Iowa. Camanche remained a small town, and was eventually evacuated by the East Bay Municipal Utility District to build the dam and reservoir that exists there today. It is fed by the Mokelumne River, including tributaries such as Rabbit Creek and Camanche Creek.
Mokelumne River Hatchery was created down river of the Camanche Reservoir to help increase the dwindling fish population that once existed. The returning Chinook salmon has increased by more than 3,000 from 1998 to 2003.
