So anyone know if I can rescue caches at this location tomorrow or is everything under water already?

It should not be under water - I was out earlier. The road is a problem from Waverly or 247 (from 75) but you can come from the Brady Road past the dump (or south side of the dump across from waverly). There is a bridge on the west side of the golf course that is high. I don't think you can access it down the road to the golf course but coming up from the land fill should work.

I think it would be unlikely for the free roam part of the park to go under.

I will likely be out tomorrow and can let you know.

I was out at the park today. Marchand Rd is open again to access from the south. The bridge is still underwater but it is much lower - I expect the province is drawing down the river through the flood way in anticipation of the water from the Assiniboine.

Although I might be wrong I can't imagine any of the caches (except possibly bridge blitz) would go under at this point even with additional water coming from the Assiniboine breach->La Salle river.

We went out this weekend and the park is in phenomenal shape. Some of the areas are pretty dried out and cracking in the bush where the water has receded but that is the only clue of the flood.

On the plus side, the park has been extremely quiet this year. There was 4 cars in the lot on a Sunday afternoon. Lots of fishing at the bridge though.
