Swimming Safety at Lake Red Rock

The summer weather is warming up this week, making for better conditions for people who want to swim at Lake Red Rock. Sheriff Jason Sandholdt says some precautions need to be made if you get out of a boat for a dip. He explains many people underestimate the wind’s strength, noting that the wind can catch a boat and float it downstream from where you’re at. He recommends not hopping out of the boat unless you have it properly anchored. Sandholdt adds that you should also be wearing a life jacket.
