From the LLoyd Park ram (west leg of lake) there are buoys that mark the channel. You can run straight to the high power wires safely. If you turn right you will shortly run into trees and need to get off plane. IF you turn left you can run to the bridge (no wake under bridge) East of the Bridge you can run anywhere all the way to the dam.

On the south leg of the lake starting at the mouth of it- if you run the middle of the leg you are okay till you get to the bridge. There is a marked boat lane south of this bridge but unless you see it in low water times I would recommend you idle anywhere south of this bridge.

Anywhere around the dam area is okay to run.

Stay at least 100 yards off last point, if your going east from Lynn creek park its shallow. Also the main point that splits both arms it's shallow as well. Seen a boat run up on it last Sunday.

Your map shows you the shallows. Between bridges is open only have to worry about depth. Loyd park side of bridge, you can pretty much see the safe and hazard areas. Pretty easy lake to run

North of Esther bridge it is obvious where the stumps are and are not. South of the bridge on the east side, running in the boat lanes is fine. They have green markers from the bridge to the creek. On the west side(Loyd), you are clear between the power lines and the bridge. The trees are mostly obvious on but there are a few hull killers that are almost flush with the water at full pool. Be careful until you get a few good passes on you graph with waypoints. It's interesting to look at the SI on the graph, you can easily see the skeg grooves around Loyd where it is average around 2-3ft deep and looks deeper. Lol. Idiots fly through there all ththe time in pleasure boats and wet bikes. I always wait for the "KAAAAWWHOOOOOMMMPPP" sound.....haven't heard it yet. But I will. Someday. Hope it isn't me. Haha
