Took a drive over to Kaw to eyeball the water situation. I knew the water levels were high but I like to actually see for myself. I usually launch at Sarge Creek. The gate was locked. From the highway 11 bridge I could see that the floating dock looked like an island way out there somewhere. The water was really muddy and lots of debri. It will be a long time before this lake is anywhere close to normal level. Seems like there is always some kind of weather problem. Wind, flood, ice, ect., ect. My two best fishing holes are Keystone and Kaw. When one is screwed up, so is the other.
