Lake Friendly Boating

WACF 13

TIPS TO REMEMBER:

  1. Stirring lake bottom suspends the phosphorus, so plane the boat in shallow areas.
  2. Accelerating in shallow water creates sediment plumes.
  3. Shallow water is highlighted in light blue in the Lake Wawasee Bathymetrics image (below).
  4. Wakeboard and surf in deeper water (you will have a larger wake anyway).
  5. Begin pulling skiers and tubers in deep water.
  6. Remember that waves harm wetlands, shorelines and lake bottoms.
