changed your plans for recreating at Lake Powell this year?

Sorry, North-enders, this poll doesn't really apply to you.
You should add one that states that you are not going at all due to the Cut being closed... I suspect many will choose not to come based off of the cut.

Not coming this summer. The Cut is more of a deciding factor than DR. We can live without DR but would be forced to stay closer to the marinas. Not worth beating up lake just to find a swarm of wake boats with everyone staying further down lake. I'll be back in September.

Our trips are off peak only. We leave out of Antelope, so The Cut is not an issue for us. Dangling Rope is more of a change of pace side trip for us, so it's not a deal breaker. We top off the fuel there if we're passing by on the Wave Runners, but that's just to insure that we can keep our toy tank as an emergency reserve.

I come to Powell for rest and relaxation. Peak season in Padre Bay is madness. We've given up on anything downlake of Buoy 33 because of the crowds.

Silver lining..... Looking forward to a quiet mid lake this June, a little time/fuel management to think about but the rewards are there. Powell has always leaned more towards an expedition than a catered vacation in my book and I think that’s what brings many of us back decade after decade. Excited for our trip, different every year for me and long memories for my family.

It still effects me and I am a north ender. if I take someone to rainbow bridge we always swing in there for ice cream. But it will restrict how much we go touring in that end of the lake without being able to grab fuel. I can make the trip easily but not if it is a multiple day touring trip down there. I will have to pack some fuel when we go fishing at the end of the SJ maybe. it does have a negative effect on a lot of boaters.

Good Luck with that, Rentals are booked solid thru 2022

I used to work as a fuel storage specialist at an airline. Years ago I invested in large professional fuel tanks that we put on the boat. All are grounded, properly vented, and have 2 micron filters. So we can carry an extra 600 gallons. They are portable to. I did this after getting stranded up lake one year after a wind storm knocked out DR for a week. Now we never have to worry about generator fuel or using the toys to much.
