    We were out at Lost Lake (right between the two) over the weekend and the water was LOW

    I think at one point the channel ramp had spots that were about 6" deep. At the most it was about 2' deep at the mouth of the river. Only way into the water there was to launch on the river ramp and even that looked pretty bad. I don't know the river in that area anywhere near enough to go out but I'm sure if you don't mind playing dodge the rock bars all day long you'd have the whole river to yourself. Have no clue what the big river area looked like.

    was in parker last weekend and there was plenty of water to run a boat, the strip is alittle low right now, just watch where you go. and everytime i went over the bridge to go into town, big river side water level stayed the same all weekend. never raised..

    Water is way down right now. They're working on the diversion dam.
    I may be growing older, but I refuse to grow up!
