With the recent heavy rains, Big Muskego Lake is definitely back in business and boaters should come out, says a deputy commissioner of the Big Muskego Lake/Bass Bay Protection and Rehabilitation District.
Gregory Burmeister, who is also a lake resident, acknowledged at last night's district meeting that boaters have had trouble launching their crafts and even getting around on the lake because the lake had been drawn down about a foot to encourage plant growth.
The lake level did not rebound as expected this spring, but last week's stormy weather finally brought the lake levels up to where lake officials want it to be for the rest of the season.
While inviting boaters to come out, Burmeister cautioned that big boats still will have trouble launching at the Durham and Boxhorn boat ramps. But he said he had no trouble at the Hunters Nest launch.
