    The daily water report is sick.Bartlett 91% Roosevelt 98% Horseshoe 85%.
    Where are they going to put the water? The inflows compared to normal are amazing.
    Salt River white water rafters are starting in two weeks.That ought to be a chilly ride.
    I hear the debris in Roosevelt is brutal.

    I was just at Bartlett and the water was chocolate. Shoreline was littered with driftwood. 10 years of all that crap in all the wash's ends up in all our lakes when we get as much rain as we did

    SB COVE Bartlett




    Saguaro is full but clean to the eye. I'm sure the back coves will show some changes with the amount of rain we got.

    My understanding is there are full size trees floating in Roosevelt.
    That is a familiar scene of Bartlett.I have gone there in the past when it was hard to even launch let alone boat on plane.It sucks to drive all the way out there just to turn around and go home.

    Anytime we get rain its a good thing. We are in a desert. Full is good.

    Oh having a jet boat helps with the logs Its the little tiny chunks that fill the water cooling hose that suck. I try to hammer it out there to chop that wood up in the nicely sharpened SS Impeller

    Thankfully I have a clean out outside the transom!

    Me too! the old Beisemeyer you had to send a kid or a contortionist in there to get at it when a rock would get sucked in! Might be a similar thing with the Pickle, doesn't look so bad tho.

    We were at Horseshoe Lake camping on Saturday night. Didn't get any pic's but the lake if FULL of debris. FYI: Do NOT go around the Road Closed signs like we did. We were very lucky to get out after getting stuck twice and the nice forest ranger at the top stopped us and reminded us how stupid we are with written warnings and a good tongue lashing.

    Bartlett (and for that matter all our lakes) has this stuff every year when the lake level rises. Once the level starts to drop, most of the stuff will be left on dry ground.

    I prefer Lake Pleasant until mid June, then head to Bartlett Lake on the weekends, and Saguaro/Canyon Lake in the middle of the week.

    Pleasant is not bad this time of year if the winds are light and out of the west. Just stay on the west side of the lake
