SUISUN CITY — A 56-year-old Suisun City man drowned on the Fourth of July while fishing at Lake Berryessa, the Napa County Sheriff’s Office said Monday.
A boater at the lake reported a person floating upside down Friday morning, said Capt. Doug Pike.
Mark Hooper was found in a U-shaped inflatable float tube and pronounced dead at the scene, the Sheriff’s Office said.
In a separate incident July 1, a San Rafael man drowned while swimming at Lake Berryessa.
Pike said the lake can be rather steep at the shoreline.
“It can drop sharply and suddenly,” he said. “It can be treacherous.”
