    You have good lake management. They're supposed to lower our lake Dec. 1 but they always wait too long. They start on Feb. 1 and by the time it starts to go down the rain comes and up it goes. Haven't been able to hunt the lowered levels in 2 yrs. Grrr! Gary

    Congrats on a great bunch of finds !

    I'm not really a serious Jewelry hunter but they just started lowering a local lake that has a 80 year old Camp on it.
    There's a small beach with a diving platform at the camp.
    The water's only gone down about 2 ft. so far but I did find a real nice Sterling Ring - a Sterling Necklace and approx. (15) newer coins last weekend.
    Should be a lot more out past the diving board area - I'll go back in a few weeks and hunt it again.

    Good Hunting !

    Nice job!! One of favorite places to hunt for sure, muddy, nasty and cold, but always good stuff coming out of the mud

    Nice! I always get excited when a local lake or pond is lowered. You never know what you might find out there.

    They lower the lake to do dock maintenance. 2 of these rings are tungsten,1 is hematite, 2 silver and 1 stainless. There is another beach on the opposite side of the lake and Im going to try and get permission from the park that owns that one.

    Dock maintenance, Dam repair and in anticipation of more water coming in with seasonal rains and snows.

    Interesting, so the drained water is channeled elsewhere via dams/connecting streams, thereby raising the levels of other lakes, or perhaps overfill areas that are dry until they drain the lake ?

    Where I live there are a chain of reservoirs and they send water downstream to next and so on and into canals for irrigation needs and eventually to the ocean.
