    With the nice weather, full lake, and marinas being open we anticipate a lot of boat activity on Detroit Lake. There are a lot of logs and debris in the lake right now which can be very dangerous. The US Forest Service will be starting the lake sweep on Monday, but we ask everyone to be cautious. Have fun!
