Re: [snowkiteidaho] Lake Lowell report and Lp forecast
- Right-on, Steve. Like Tom VA said, the Deerflat website says the last day of boating is September 30, and we should honor that. We don't want anyone jeopardizing our hard-won access rights by sailing there on/after Oct. 1.JonOn Wed, Sep 16, 2009 at 4:22 PM, Steve Linane <stevelinane@...> wrote:This was years ago before kitebording , but I was kicked off at least two times that I can remember , once was April 14 and I put up a little argument saying the lake opens tomorrow but he wouldn't budge , the other time it was after it closed maybe late October but those were times I got caught . at this point My personal decision is to fallow the rules . back then it didn't seem like the stacks were so high and it didn't affect so many people .Steve----- Original Message -----From: Tom von AltenSent: Wednesday, September 16, 2009 2:10 PMSubject: Re: [snowkiteidaho] Lake Lowell report and Lp forecast
The season is April 15-Sept. 30. Their website doesn't have the information under "boating," but here's what it says under fishing:Can I fish from a boat? The lake is open to motorized boating between April 15 and September 30. Boat-launching facilities are available at the Lower Dam Recreation Area, Access No. 1, Access No. 7, and the east and west ends of the Upper Dam. Launching facilities are subject to closure due to low water levels. During the non-boating season, October 1 through April 14, human-powered boats may be used, but only in Fishing Areas A and B, 200 yards in front of the Upper and Lower Dams.
In the past, I've always assumed it was "closed" from Oct. to mid-April, based on reports and signage (at Gott's Point).
You want to take a flier and "see what happens," think about how well-loved you'll be in the community if you eff it up for everyone else.
