Man. Fuck the chain. It’s fun at times but having a boat there and dealing with that bullshit constantly would drive me nuts. We have such a short season here, it’s killer if you’re just a recreational boater.

Yeah I am not sure about the decision to close the Lower. It is not even that high. I think it was at a higher level when it was FULL OPEN for Memorial day weekend. No wake for sure but closing it seems kind of drastic. When they closed it last July for the flood I want to say the river was a good 1-2ft higher than this and well into my yard at time of closure. My guess is the DNR is just being proactive knowing we could get a few more inches of rain today. Kinda bummed I wanted to go boating this weekend even if it was just putting around no wake, and anchoring somewhere. Wish we had some notice of the closure I would have taken the toon out of the water to bring downtown this weekend. If I try to sneak it half mile up river to the launch ramp I would have half a dozen pictures of me on LFRB "boating" while the river is closed.

I heard from some people they closed it due to “floating debris”

meh, chain gets closed or goes no wake a few times a year- it's not like you'd want to boat on the big puddle today or this weekend anyways... weather has pretty solidly sucked this season thus far.

big puddle isn't warm enough to have a chick get into in what, two weeks at least still? then come august/september look out for those fun small craft advisorys.

lake G is a lil puddle to do laps in and gets plenty boring plenty quick enough.

they all have their ups and downs. best way for me right now would be boat on a lift on the chain and my cute lil truck and trailer to tow wherever when i wanna.

now to just get that 7,000lb $10,000 lift.

fml.

My house is at 741 so. Yeah I'm fucked. Lowest point of my yard is 738 it appears.

Also, here's the flood map for my area. House is below the red pointer. Just barely.
