WNW wind looks good all day in the main pool - Purgatory Cove launch. If you're new to the launch we can show you the path to launch out of it. Water temp 64+ at west side. Water will be warmer than the air. Who's with me?

Hi Reid,
What time are you planning to be there? I'll be heading there in the morning 10-11-ish, hope the temperature will go up by then...
Never been to Clinton Lake so any tips and advice would be welcome.

UPDATE: Wind is looking NW, better for The Road launch instead. Drive to the The Road launch on your way in.

The water will be warmer at the road, it was like bath water there the other day, felt great. I hope it gets warmer than forecasted and warms up quicker. I may head down there around 9:00 to scope things out, won't be surprised if we have fog today.

Fun beautiful day at Clinton Lake. We all launched off The Road. I was lit at times on my 5.8 with 108. My fingers went numb in the morning air temp. It was nice to warm them back up by putting my hands in the water. Nice flat water on the far side for trying board 360s. Great to see everybody and can't wait to get out there again.
