I was out on Golden for a few hours Saturday afternoon. We took the scenic route to get back, driving by the Geneesee lakes (Lower and Middle.)
The water in the Geneesee Lakes is almost up to the road right now. If you've wanted to try either lake, but didn't want to deal with the shallow launches, you should give them a go right now. If you have four wheel drive, you shouldn't have much trouble launching.
i'd recommend Middle Gen (north sie of the road) for panfish, and Lower Gen (South side) for bass, especially if you have a smaller boat.
