Re: St. Lawrence Seaway - high water summer 2017

Good info from Arch. Considering the conditions this year, it might be just as well to check with the Seaway Management before you set out. I am sure you have checked their web pages Seaway System - Recreational Boating

They put out regular notices here: Seaway System - News and Information - Notices - Montreal . The seaway is about to release an even larger amount of water in order to try and reduce Lake Ontario levels. Many reports on web. Here is one: St. Lawrence surge to break record today | News | thesuburban.com

Another thing to be aware of, is that many of the normal spots where boaters like to stop en-route, may not be usable. As an example, just heard that the annual EYC regatta scheduled to be held at Henderson Harbour YC on South Shore of Lake Ontario has had to be cancelled and will be moved to Oswego.
