FREMONT (KPTM) – Bryson's Airboat Tours has seen the Platte River at it's highest and at it's lowest. The high and low point is separated by only a year.
"Came out this morning it seemed like someone had pulled the plug," Bryson, the owner of Bryson's Airboat Tours.
Even though the river is dropping, business is booming.
"Yeah when you have a heat like this people love getting out in the water, but also with the low level conditions people actually want to do tours with us just to see what it is like out here," he said.
The lack of water is putting the environment in danger. Jumping trout floated up stream during last year's flood. They are now taking all the nutrients from the other fish, which with the low water, isn't a lot.
"It is tough, very tough, our business we thrive in most conditions. Where farming, fishing, hunting, I'd say most of the industries are going to be hit pretty hard," he said.
One of those businesses, Heron Bay, has seen a drop in costumers. Owner Stephen Smith believes the heat and lack of breeze is keeping costumers away.
"Even a day like today, if the weather would break, the temperature would break, we would have nearly a full crowd here," he said.
