I am going to be coming up there for Labor Day weekend.  Will it still be deep enough to bring a fishing boat?  Also, where is a safe spot (and deep enough) to drop the boat in?

That mat of weeds coming into the lake at the west end,  was so thick 20 years ago, that there was barely a path leading through it into the lake. I think gaining some weeds or vegetation in the lake is a good thing. I can't imagine this lake being taken over by weeds anymore.  I believe the weed or vegetation gains are certainly due to less carp in the lake.

Fished with "Critter"Curt-t-o.Fished weed lines, drifted lake & worked around river mouth vegetation (word:weeds have nasty connotation)Nice seeing crappie numbers(8 inch) in lake. Early Sun a.m. large mouth bass going crazy on 3-4 inch rubber minnow type tail on jighead. Caught much kept zero. Too many N. Pike in lake-opinion. Counted 3 flocks(approx. 150) of pelicans early am Sun. flying west to east over Lake P. DEPTH: Approx 5 to 5 1/2 feet of water. Temp low 70's. Loved hearing band " Visitors" music wafting from Good Old Days, across Lake P. Critter you should have danced!

I don't know if you realize this but those patches have been there the past four years and go back 12 years ago they were thicker.  I wouldn't have much worry about current conditions it's Puckaway.    More weeds mean clearer water, less wind turbulence.  There are positive and negatives to each situation.

Hope your right but those huge patches outside the river mouth don't look good. Caught about 6 crappie 5 bass and small pike yesterday afternoon. Two crappie under my pier this morning.

Fishing quite a bit and amazed at the volume of weeds. Not good weeds. Many Milfol (not sure how to spell) plants around my pier also-north shore. Lake will replicate Buffalo in a few short years if we don't do something.

After fog cleared again hit the river this morning. Four fish total and two bite offs. One fish a pike which was no bigger than a magic marker-what a difference a day makes.
