Same story here in SE Michigan. Our lake is shallow so I'm good with the high water but it's no use to us until it quits raining. As I write looking out the window it's still overcast after getting rain overnight. Still hoping to get out this afternoon or maybe tomorrow. Who knows at this point.

Please send us some of your rain......our lakes are down significantly.....no rain in sight.

Looks like a very dry summer ahead in Texas. :(

31mph wind in OK with no rain. The lake 1mile from my house is almost dry and the ramp has been closed. Now I have to drive 20min. That is if the wind ever stops.

Here is our dock/ shore this weekend. It is floating and is a good 6 inches under the water when walked on. the weather was beautiful memorial day; go figure, the wife and kids stayed at the lake and i had to go to work....:( My Mastercraft is the spoiled boat under the blue shorestation canopy.

Sunny here but a lot of wind! We still went but apparently no one else wanted to be on the small lake. We were the only ones on the lake at 9am yesterday. Crazy!

Oh, an the small city lake is in "Memorial Park".......still no one!?!?

What lake are you on? Had the same situation on Lake Tippecanoe, water rose 6" in two days. Finally was beautiful yesterday and just idled around the lake. Great Memorial Day weekend all the same.

we are on the Indian lakes chain in Wolcottville. (Messick, Hackenburg, Dallas, Westler, and Witmer). the lakes are not completely closed, but are idle speed only now. I figured this summer would be lousy, as last summer was as close to perfect as we could get for boating / laking in our area....

Im only like 40 minutes from lake tippy on lake manitou and we havnt had any of those problems. I wonder if you have had that much more rain. The lake was probably 16in from touching the bottom of my pier.
