Default Great Lakes water levels?

Lake Ontario water level is looking low for this time of year. What are you guys seeing in the other Great Lakes?

I don't think so. Maybe a tiny bit early in the season.
Couple inches?

I have the chart at home.

It was higher in general in the last two years than is was in the two before that.... that is for sure.

Georgian Bay seems a bit lower this year, but water levels where we are usually peak in late July/August. Plus its been bone dry there up until very recently. We were a bit conservative putting the docks in last weekend because of this.

(For those that don't know, Georgian Bay is usually referred to as the "6th great lake". But geographically, it drains into Lake Huron, directly affecting its water levels too. At almost 120 miles long and 40+ miles wide, its the largest freshwater bay in the world. )
