nope. it could be a while. the ranger told me yesterday that the inflow line is broken from the outflow of a different lake. has no idea when it will be fixed
fishing is funny some days great other days nothing worth keeping.

Was out there today. it's about 8 ft low. Pretty sure it will get more water before June 1st. (A lot of low lakes will be getting filled around the same time)

Water was 61 in the early am, then 67 at 2 pm. Murky green, 1 ft vis.
Paddle boarders are starting to come out.

Heard a rumor that someone left an unattended pole that caught a fish that in turn caught a pelican, which then flew off with the rod and the fish and got stuck in the trees. Didn't see any of it but heard about it and I can believe it- I've had to fight one or two off at that lake before.

No water running in at all. Talked with one of the rangers and he stated that the water comes from MacIntosh, untill they fix the drain there no water.

Is the water too low for boats?

Water level is good enought to put boats in so you shouldn't have any problems.
