Last I heard, water is extremely high. Unless you have a very small john, or flat bottom, you aren't getting under the bridge to the north side at all.

Lassale is as high as i have ever seen it. I bet the water level is above the angle part of the bridge support at heidecke. It was like that about 5 years ago, to get under with my little boat i had to deploy the trolling motor, take the hood off my 25hp johnson and lay on my stomach. I still hit the flywheel on my motor.

Just one more thing to consider on H in a high water year. If you do get under the bridge keep an eye wide open for a change in the wind. If you just get under going out and the the wind turns especially from the S ow SW the waves at the bridge will be an issue getting back to the launch. Been there scraped and bumped that bridge decking getting home.

I was out Saturday for about and hour. The water at the bridge is between the red and yellow and I've made it under with no problem at that water level before so decided to give it a try. Got to the other side pretty easy but 2ft rollers coming down the length of the lake made getting anywhere difficult so all I could do is drift shore casting rip-rap. With the trolling motor on high facing into the wind I was still moving 2mph+ backwards. Since I couldn't maintain a drift I packed up and called it. It took me 3 tries to get under the bridge going the other way, had to take prop off trolling motor and got a couple new scuffs on my boat and hat for my troubles.
