Water levels on the rise at Barren River Lake

By  | 

BARREN RIVER LAKE, Ky. (WBKO)--- Many people are loading their boats in to the water at Narrows Marina, but boater Larry Parson says increased lake levels at Barren River Lake are making it more difficult to get his boat in and out of the water.

"One of the problems is the access walk way down to the boat docks is under water...It doesn't bother me but my wife has to walk through the water to get to the boat," he says.

"We know when the water level is this high, you're gonna have a little bit more debris floating, or washed in from the rain," says Parson.

People at the marina say levels are 4 feet higher than usual.

Parson says despite the high water, the boat ramps are always perfect at Barren Rive Lake, and he's making the most out of the gorgeous day.
