The warmer weather this fall is playing into the hands of boaters.
That's the report from DNR Conservation Police Officer John Williamson. He indicates with the warmer days there's been a lot of boaters out for some later-than-normal joy rides on the Clinton Lake.
Portions of the lake have closed down this week and Williamson indicates the warm water area of Clinton Lake serves as a refuge for the traveling waterfowl.
Williamson indicates this past Columbus Day weekend was busier than normal with the warmer weather from Sunday and Monday.
