Last night’s thunderstorms, three perhaps, brought an inch of rain to the rain gauge and left the lake surrounded in a morning fog.
A check of the Mass Office of Fishing and Boating Access website (see link under FOR MORE INFORMATION!) tells us it was the American Bass Anglers Couples counting off loud and clear as they left the ramp and channel for the main part of the lake early this morning.
The MPA advises caution to all lake users as the waterlevel continues to go down and boat safety is a concern! Sunday evening 2 boats hit the wall and a third hit a rock when going through the causeway with a fourth boat hitting during the week. The many new users from the access boat ramp and at the campgrounds are not aware of the dam owner’s new lowering of the lake in mid-summer bringing the many large rocks and walls just under the water’s surface. The MPA Board of Directors is lining up a number of boating safety education initiatives for Manchaug Pond’s visitors and MPA members. Details to come!
Sun is shining – the fog has burnt off! BE SAFE!
