Crystal Lake reopened Friday afternoon to boat traffic with no wake limitations in place.

The no wake restriction had been in place because of high water levels since Sunday, and the lake was closed Tuesday through Friday.

The Fox River's Upper River (Zone A), Lower River (Zone B) and Chain O' Lakes were closed Friday afternoon, according to the Fox Waterway Agency's website.
