Water levels in Swan Lake

Postby AK Ray » Wed Aug 29, 2007 1:38 pm

Since I have been gone all month, what are the water levels in the Mud, Gull, Swan, and Leaf lakes like?
I don't know what I will be up to on the opening so I would like to know if the lack of rain has left the marsh too low to run my black brant in.

thanks, Ray

AK Duck, how much of the rock is sticking out in the first lake? That is what I typically use to guage how well my outboard will do in getting into the creek. If I can make it to the entrance then I can make it all the way to Leaf and have a good day sitting on the shore someplace.

Then there is more than enough water left to run in.

I did some work on the outboard last night and good thing we didn't just go out on sunday. I need to replace the impeller again. It looks like bees or some other bug filled the weep hole up with goo all the way into the housing this summer. I cleaned the hose and discharge fitting last night and still no water comes out.
