It's always good to check with them just before going, the locks are sometimes down for maintenance
I did the trip Westbound in January in my 4' draft trawler

going blank (fortunately I had entered the coordinates in my handheld beforehand) for about 1/2 hour right as we entered the lake, it was a nice trip.
