As there continues to be changes since July 5, 2021 when Canada updated its guidance rules for vaccinated travellers entering Canada, please check the official sites for current COVID-19 travel, testing, quarantine and borders statuses.
The one constant on Bobs and Crow Lakes is that the water level is constantly changing.
Information for the water levels can be found at Water Levels .
Historically the discussion of water levels has been ongoing for a very long time. In 1982 Parks Canada prepared the Rideau Canal Management Plan. The plan used 40 years of extensive data from precipitation to lake evaporation rates to design a comprehensive scientific approach to managing water levels. The resulting 'Rule Curve", is used on reservoir lakes such as Bobs Lake to determine the best water level throughout the year to support the Rideau Canal. Parks Canada adheres to, given normal events and consistent operations to this Rule Curve.
