Watch out because the lakes are now officially "nasty".
Just talked to a friend of mine who's doing bacterial research in our lakes (Mendota, Monona, Waubesa, etc).
He suggested to be very careful (hard to believe but this is worst than a rain runout).
The stuff in our lakes can make you really sick specially this year due to a specific type "rare" bacteria.

Mentoda is the worst lakes in terms of water quality (bacteria, yeast and not to mention the fungus types).

See you in the fall.


PS: Please tell people to stop feeding the birds! 90% of the e-coli from our lakes are coming directly from bird poop, yeah not from sewers.

Victor.....what happened to the other thread on this issue? Craig and I had some responses to it.

The lakes are going through the normal Madison beach closings that happen most every year.

3 of us rode at Esther on a day it was closed and none of us had any problems at all. The plus for us is that we aren't swimming in these areas that are closed, but launching and landing and getting into waters that are better mixed up and less affected.

Thanks for the heads up though.
