Any idea on Wordens?  Can you get a fiberglass boat in there?

I wouldn't risk it. Even with my boat, which isn't fiberglass. I think guys with lighter, smaller aluminum boats might be able to get in there, but navigation is risky with the water so low.

Anyone been to Indian lately? Not sure if any of the rain we had over the last couple weeks helped. I would like to try and get out there this weekend but don't want to drive there if I can't launch.

I haven't been there recently. I think the last time was late August. But based on how low it was then, and the fact that we went a few more weeks after that with no measurable rain, my guess is that it's still pretty low and launching anything other than a small aluminum will be tough.

Maybe someone else knows more??

I'm not surprised at all. It had gotten really, really bad, even way back in August.

Although we've had some rain during the past several weeks, it hasn't been enough to make a considerable difference in the water levels at local lakes. Most southern RI boat launches are still unusable. It'll be interesting to see how this plays out during the winter months and into the spring.

I launched at Watchaug last Wednesday.  Had no problem motoring right up to the shore! It came up quite a bit there.

That's good to know, Joe. Thanks for the update.  :thumbup:
