"Duke manages and regulates up to the 760' elevation. They're the only ones who have jurisdiction. If you're wading in the water, you can walk anywhere you want on that lake (apart from where Duke says you can't)"

Oops, got my days mixed up  monday will be the more moderate mentioned in my previous post, must be old timers sett'n in? DU-HU

  Fri & Sat look like rain outs with plenty of N/E wind, Sun looks sunny with strong N becoming N/N/E by mid day, Sun looks N/N/E a bit more moderate. Badin may be a better call if you don't mind a 35 or so more mile drive. There has been a fence added along the north side of Beatties ford launch, making hi-wind launching a bit more difficult
