dj (rivrrunr) it all depends on the wind! it seems like you can find a spot regardless (be prepared to share). I've had some very nice conditions out there before. I've been down to the river once & it was nice! It was on a Friday that some friends & myself took off work. usually stay away from the river on the weekends & let to experts have at it. What kind of ride do you have.
d powers what do you have for a ride?

I don't mean to hijack by any means but I go to ISU and am very much a beginner. I was wondering if anyone was looking for a third so I could maybe tag along and learn some stuff. Thanks

I have a few times and there is always good water somewhere on the rock. If I ever get a boat I'll be a frequent visitor!

yeah jared i plan to be out all weekend and hopefully will be riding some nice water in buck creek in the early mornings of all three days this weekend. hit me back if you want a tow or to hang out or whatever. if you can make it out early sunday that would be great because its always hard to find a third for early morning sets.
i think a lot of people stay away from red rock because they don't like to be turned into kabobs by those barely underwater tree tops.

kriedes24, I go to ISU as well. You should consider joining the ISU ski team. It's a 3-event team, so they only have ski boats at the lake, but there are some good wakeboarders out there who can teach you some stuff.

From Rockford, Il area here.... but since we are all flooded out, are there any riding spots still open in IOWA?
Old    spencer heywood (spenchey)      Join Date: Dec 2006       08-30-2007, 11:20 AM Reply   
Brett, you can't go on the weekend unless you get up earlly (which i do), also the narrows are pretty good almost all(but its shallow) the time unless there are lots of tubers. If it is windy you head into the wind untill you come to the other side of the lake. and during the week its pretty much good water all the time, unless you get a bad wind. alot of tourist try to ride on the weekend in the middle of the day which you will never be able to find any water then.

I've gone on center a few times this year and on spirit a few times. Whenever i've tried the other lakes on weekdays they have still been pretty rough. What kinda boat do you have, i'll look for you if i'm there.

i have an all yellow 06 22v with hawk stickers on the windows. its the only boat on the lake like it, hard to miss. right down it looks like we are going to have a south wind all week so if i'm out at all i'll be in the narrows or on the south side of the lake. what boat do you have?

jared, thanks for coming out, hope you had a good time and maybe learned something. we didn't make it out until later on monday and were only out for a couple hours and didn't even ride. if you are back down this fall let me know we will be going out until the water temps drop below 50.

Newbie here from Iowa!

I live close to Saylorville and we have been going there. I just picked up a wake board and I am looking forward to getting it out this weekend for the first time.

I heard the Saylorville water was polluted because of sewage coming out of Fort Dodge and Boone with all the recent heavy rains??? Anyone see (taste) anything nasty in the water???

I thought about making a trip to Rathbun thinking it might be a little cleaner (different river, Chariton vs Des Moines).

Anyone have any input on water condition or debris in the water for these lakes??
