Anyone going to brave the high river levels this weekend at Lansing? Heard it is above 11'. We normally hunt when it is 8'. Thanks for any input.

From the sounds of it, you need to be darn careful if it is up that much
Good luck and wear your life jacket

The current won't kill you. It's wind ripping across the current that flips boats.

Almost tempted to head up,, Had some great hunts up there running way back in the timber. That's a lot of work though for this old guy!
