Lake Levels Are Up, More Boaters Hit the Water

By the end of the summer in 2011, the water levels were dangerously low at many Texas Lakes, and some were completely empty. Remember those images of Lake Travis near Austin? They had dry, cracked dirt where the water had existed before, and docks were left high and dry.

This year, much better!

Lake Sam Rayburn has seen steady traffic this weekend and more boaters are expected there today. I’ve also got friends headed to Lake Cypress Springs, a few hours north of here. If you’re headed to the water for Memorial Day, keep this in mind.

Lake patrols continue to look for boaters under the influence. According to Texas Parks and Wildlife, alcohol plays a role in 50 percent of boating accidents. Yes, you can get a DUI on the water! You could be jailed for up to 180 days and/ or fined up to two thousand dollars.

Don’t drink and boat today, and wear a life jacket of course. We don’t want to be reading about your in the news tomorrow.

Then buckle up on your way home, because the Click it or Ticket campaign is still going on and you could get fined for not fastening your seat belt.

Happy Memorial Day!
