We have some extra water if you need it. Lake Champlain is above 103' and therefore almost 4' above flood line. A few of the usual suspects (some Pike and a few Smallies) are showing up in some warm spots, but in general things will be a week or two late.

Todd,
Is that from the causeway? I heard it was under water. It's going to take a while for all that water to run out.

Lake George still has plenty to give Champlain!

Same deal...most docks are under water!

All rivers are unfishable!

Got out after some Smallies. They are definitely in their staging areas, but the behavior seems confused: lots of follows, but very hesitant to commit. The water is a bit cold for this time of year, and 3 extra feet of it. Did manage a few fish, all in the 3-3,6# range (and very fat). Usual muggings by a few Northerns.
