Thread: Open water..?

  1. #1

    Default Open water..?

    I am in the process of purchasing a jet boat and we are looking for some open water to run it in prior to close. I am in the valley; I looked at Finger Lake on Sat, no good. Knik looks open but maybe a lot of debris this time of year?

    We are looking to put it in on this coming Sat or Sun.

    I heard the Big Su might be open or getting there?

    Any input would be appreciated, thanks for the help.

    Knik is fine as far as debris, open the whole length. As long as you are fairly good at reading water the Knik would be your best choice. The launch at the highway is a little steep if you are running a heavy inboard

    Lake Lucile was open at the launch but the gate was locked. Should be open fully real soon.
