From Dow's Boat Rental:
DEP’s advisory is to avoid bodily contact with the water and to not eat the fish caught at this time. There has been a lot of misinformation put out there, but the Lake has been open, regardless of what the signs have said, other than the public beaches being closed to swimming only.
If you go to the Hopatcong Lake Regional News page, you will be able to find out all the latest information concerning the algae bloom.
With little to no boat traffic on the lake, it is the perfect time to cast your line.
For the month of July, we will be open seven days a week from 5:30 AM until 7:00 PM.
Address: 145 Nolans Point Rd, Lake Hopatcong, NJ 07849
