The boating season is in full swing and it's been a busy year so far at Clinton Lake.
Sgt. John Williamson with the DNR Conservation Police Force says they have been focused on a new law that went into effect a few years ago that has tubers and skiers with a bright orange flag on their watercraft.
Williamson says he likes the law as it can be a huge safety hazzard and is a good warning system for other boaters.
Even though the weather hasn't catered to boaters all that often this summer, Williamson says the fisherman have been out in full force almost all year. He reminds them to check out a fishing digest and it will have all the regulations for each body of water you might be going to.
Williamson says for all DNR inquiries about boating, fishing, hunting courses that will be starting soon, visit dnr.illinois.gov.
