Some lake levels now too high Published: June 12, 2013

CLAREMORE -- Low levels recently threatened some Oklahoma lakes with closing or, at a minimum, reduced activity.

Now, heavy rains have brought another challenge. At Oologah Lake, for instance, a high lake level has resulted in swimming beaches, fishing docks and some boat ramps to be closed.

The Claremore Daily Progress reports that the majority of the boat ramps, courtesy docks and fishing docks are open and the lake levels appear to be dropping.

But officials of the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers urges visitors to use caution while at the lake.
