UPDATE: 72-Hour Period Ends, Lake-Wide 5mph lifted on East & West Okoboji – 600′ Rule In Effect

As of 9:15 am, Wednesday, July 11th, the 72-hour period since East and West Okoboji were at 6.54′ has ended. The lake-side 5mph is lefted and the 600′ rule is now in effect for East and West Lake Okoboji.

Note: Rain is in the forecast for Thursday night and Friday morning. Additional rain will cause lake levels to rise and therefore the lake-wide 5mph rule may be reinstated if levels rise high enough.
