Shaver, Huntington and Hume Lakes. Author: Steven D. Harrison. The Sierra Nevada of Fresno County is rich in natural resources. Logging operations of the 19th century built dams and millponds, such as Hume Lake, sawmills, railroads, and two of the longest flumes in the world. In the 20th century, the Southern California Edison Company began the massive Big Creek Hydroelectric Project. It resulted in the creation of several lakes, including Shaver and Huntington and a series of powerhouses for hydroelectric power. These lakes provided new venues for fishing and boating. Included in this book are epic stories told with historical postcards of logging, electricity, and leisure in the Central Sierra Nevada within Fresno County.
