Fishtown is looking pretty ready for the season! The water level is not as low as it has been recently at 579.5′, but way off the high of just over 582.3′ in 2020. The dredger is running and dumping sand down by South Beach. 

Today’s water level:

Taken back in 2019 (with seiches, the level easily went over the dock):

Taken at the severely low level near 576′ in 2013:


I will be at the Art Shanty again this year in Fishtown from 6/28-7/4

Thanks to everyone who has supported our project throughout the years. We all know how special and “one-of-a-kind” this area is and we have enjoyed bringing out that uniqueness in our images. Love to you all! -Keith and Jim

Looks great! Can’t wait to see it in person. 2020 was so high. I didn’t even know what seiches were until I experienced it in person.

I agree with Dick. Fishtown is all shiny and will be better as it ages. Love the photos about the difference in water levels !

Nice, but it will be more fitting after the new wood ages.
