    Really want to try that ride Alex!! Never been north of Poinsette.

    It might be up some down there but its the same at 50, went out there last night to check and it was bone dry.

    Hey Duke,

    I was wondering about the water level.

    Low but looking better.. I put in at Jolly Gator and went North to Lake Monroe Saturday.. The River channel north of the Jolly Gator leading to Lake Harney is unusable for boats, Maybe 6 inches deep.. Anything South of 46 is just not possible right now. Anything North of Mullet Lake Park is perfect.

    As long as we stay on plane through lake poinsett we should be fine thru Middle river then Lake Winder has some real low spots..if we can get through those two spots we'll be good. As the river levels go up the lake washington dam will spill over allowing us to go over the dam and we can cross Lake Washington and head towards Palm Bay. I would think with all this rain that within a week or so the levels will be great and plenty full for a good cruise.

    If/when you cross Lake poincett, go all the way east till you run out of water, in the right hand corner is the entrance to south bound St. Johns. It's real hard to see, might wanna follow an air boat
