Harriman State Park has opened the boating season on Lake Tiorati. The Waterfront Committee recently recorded the water temperature at 54 degrees in the shallows near the land. Deeper water may be much colder.
The Waterfront Committee recommends against boating in such cold water unless you are very familiar with cold-water hazards and wear the appropriate cold-water gear. Also, a Personal Flotation Device, PFD should be worn at all times. A PFD is not a substitute for cold-water gear.
