Information

Upstream of Providence Narrows the valley of the Eucumbene River widens to almost 2 km. Prior to 1960 the water level had not risen above 20% or about 1130m, enough to begin filling the scenes above. At a supply level of over 50% boat trailers can access the water from tracks off the road to the Portal. Snowy Hydro site for lake levels here: http://www.snowyhydro.com.au/waterenvironment/lake-levels-calculator/
Bush camp at Denison where the track to ford the Eucumbene is gated as of 2016, so it's a 1km walk to fish from the banks. The Providence Holiday Park and Cool Mtn Lodge are on the road to Providence Portal itself. Here one can observe the water discharge or lack thereof from the only Snowy Scheme tunnel with an outlet portal above water level. Usually the only part of the Scheme where water may be seen flowing. Most dams rarely spill and only Khancoban, Tantangara and Jindabyne have controlled/environmental releases.
