Got out today (Friday) for the first run of the season. Took the afternoon off work and headed to the Delta. Very few boats out and for the most part were fishermen. Water was 64 F according to the boat. I think that was about right. Air was about 75 F. Water was a bit chilly but I managed just fine without using a wetsuit. I went out with my son and a friend of his. My daughter elected to stay home. My son tried out his new used wakeskate that he picked up at the Sacramento boat show for $40. He got up on it on his third attempt which I thought was pretty good. He started doing some olies almost immediately. Middle of March is a new record for us. We kept it to a short day as it still cools off quickly this time of year. Typically it is April before our first outing for the year. Snow skiing and snowboarding last Friday; wakeboarding and wakeskating this Friday. Not bad. It was a good outing and a great day today.

Nice! I'm heading up to Sonora to check on the boat, was thinking about stopping by a home depot and picking up a truck so I could put it in new melones but then I'd have to put all the plugs and hoses back on.

New Melones is is one of my top favorites. The Stanislaus River arm is soooooooooo nice. We camp and boat there often. Nothing like being able to put the boat in first thing in the morning and have flat water til about noon. Fall is just freaking amazing there because after school starts most people quite going.

Some of the resorts around Lake Tahoe are reporting that they still have over 100 inches of base. So I have choices. ;) I'd like to go up on a warm day for some spring skiing in the moguls and then call it quits for the winter ski season. I'm still undecided as to what to do about spring break which is the week after next. I may just do a little bit of everything - snow skiing, wakeboarding and scuba diving. I need to justify why I still reside in CA somehow.

I seen your other post and was wondering why you were asking about lakes in Arkansas when your location said West Coast.

Hey whats up man? I put it in Lake Degray, it was a chilly 51!! Jumped in the water once, and then jumped right the eff back out. Haha. It was a beautiful 80 degree day though on Friday.

We'll probably head up again next weekend. Are you out at Degray?

No, we didn't make it out there like we wanted too. This weather is killing me. 80 on Friday and 47 later this week. Gotta love it!

We put in at Lake Pleasant out here in Phoenix today - air 85, water 58. Still a good day on the water- the kids and the dog went swimming, but I stayed in the boat.

Kids were out of school last week for Spring Break, and went snow skiing on Tues/Wednesday - the local mountains got 24" of fresh snow last weekend, but by Wednesday they were reporting 65 degrees at the base of the lifts.

Gotta love springtime.

Isn't Hyco a "power company owned" cooling lake with warmer-than-usual water temps?

Saturday it'll be snowing in KC. Ugh...

I don't even need to be on the water, I just want to get it dewinterized and ready to go for when it DOES get warm. This "spring" blows.

I managed to get in some ATV action on the weekend.... about 14" of ice still on the water. Doesn't look like a early thaw like last year for us.

I'd make a smart shxt remark about CA not looking so bad after all but I figure that might be pushing it. ;)
