A boating advisory was issued for Keuka Lake in Yates County from Sheriff Ron Spike on Thursday:
“With the heavy rains today many creeks and gulley’s that empty into Keuka Lake have washed assorted debris into the lakes and they can be a floating hazard to navigation. Boaters are cautioned to be observant of floating tree limbs, logs, stumps, and misc. debris in the water. The Marine Patrol is reporting a large quantity of debris floating in the lake at this time.
A reminder that it’s the NYS Navigation Law on Keuka Lake to be no more than 5 mph within 200 feet of shore Any hidden obstructions likely to be inside those distances.”
Additional rains are expected on Friday, which will likely make the problem worse.
