Action Line: Boating on Windsor Lake

Question — The weather's been so warm lately, when can I get back out on Windsor Lake?
Answer — According to the town's website, boating permits don't allow motorized boating to start on the lake until May 27, but non-motorized boating is allowed year-round, with some stipulations.
Boaters must have a permit to use boats on Windsor Lake, which are sold as either a half-day of annual permit.
Half-day permits for motorized boating are $15 for residents and $25 for non-residents, according the website, and annual permits are $450, and are available for residents only.
Daily and annual permit holders have to call (970) 674-3500 to reserve a time and day no earlier than the Monday of the week they plan to be out on the lake.
Motorized boating is available from 8 a.m.-2 p.m. or 2 p.m.-8 p.m. Wednesday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from May 27-Aug. 8, and Saturday and Sunday only from Aug. 12-Sept. 17.
