North Texas lake levels on rise in time for boating season

Lake levels are on the rise just in time for boating season -- North Texas lakes are seeing a significant increase from the extreme drought conditions that left many boaters grounded last spring.

The Army Corps of Engineers says area lakes are up on average 4-and-a-half feet since Feb. 20.

The increase is evident at the Rockwall Harbor, where docks once met dry ground but are finally floating again.

Lavon Lake is now 83 percent full, while Lake Ray Roberts is 87 percent full. Both are up about 8 feet.
