The spring boating season on Lake Mead is looking great. The water level continues to rise and is currently at 1122 ft elevation. This is up around 40 feet from the levels 1 year ago. The increase in Lake Mead water level is good news for both fishing and recreational boating. Echo Bay is still the place to launch and the North Shore Inn is the closest hotel with great boat parking including hook ups for those that need them.
