Lake life

Scary, isn’t it?


I can’t tell you how many times I’ve seen boaters flying out across this flat in Lake D’Arbonne when the water was at normal levels, or running full speed between these two “Boat Lane” markers.

Scary, isn’t it?

This photo is from the last drawdown in 2012 with the lake down five feet. So when the lake is down about 2 feet in a week or so, these stumps will be JUST UNDER the water’s surface.

Boat Race anyone?

My point is simple. Be careful out there during ALL STAGES of this drawdown for the next few months.

And here’s another tip: If you have a boat in your boathouse that you want to get out for any reason during the drawdown, now’s a good time to do it. As the lake nears that 4-5 feet lower-than-normal level, it will leave many boats high and dry and ramps will become difficult to access.

And ounce of planning is worth a pound of stumps.
