How many of you Folks are finding the water levels really really low? Most of my backwater spots in Eastern Ontario are dried up to the point of walking on cracked mud. What are the conditions like where you are? :thumbsdown:

The Bay of Quinte is a lot lower than this time last year. There is 8 to 10 feet of shore in front of my blind this year, last year there was only 1.

6 ft in front of my blind, it was built touching water 2 yrs ago. :eek:

Back ponds don't have any water to have a water level.

Still have a few big beaver ponds and a couple of deep creeks that are doing OK. Water is down about 2ft but plenty of water to hold ducks.
