Record high water

If you haven't yet, get down to the lake and witness what (hopefully) is a once in a lifetime sight.
103+ feet above sea level.

You guys this this high water will impact the duck reproduction this year? I'm thinking flooded swamps and normal nesting areas were probably a challenge... with the amount of rain in April and May, I thinking there may have been many flooded out nests and lost eggs, etc.

Thoughts?
