Local authorities say the 2016 boating season at Clinton Lake was one of the safest they've seen in recent memory.
John Williamson, DNR Conservation Police Officer says the heavy boating season has wrapped up and feels it was a very safe year at Clinton Lake. He attributes that to their enforcement in years past and emphasis on drunken operators.
Even though the heavy boating season might be over, it may not completely wrap up until October. Williamson says you get some nice weekends in September or October and there will likely be boats out on the water.
