Beavers VS. Lake Level
Debris resulting from the work of a family of beavers has produced difficulties in the normal control of the water level of the lake. This has led to a somewhat lower water level than the normal target. Ice breakup contributed to this as well. Now, until we get some water via rain, the raising of the level is slow and difficult.
More about current Lake Level.
