Calamus Reservoir Reopens to Boat Traffic

LINCOLN – Calamus Reservoir has been reopened to boat traffic as efforts to find a missing boater continue. The Homestead Knolls boat ramp remains closed, however.

The Nebraska Game and Parks Commission, Garfield County Sheriff’s Office and Burwell Fire Department are searching for Wesley Sell, 38, of Arcadia. Sell has been missing since the fishing boat he was riding in sank amid high winds on the afternoon of Oct. 11.

Calamus Reservoir is located 5 miles northwest of Burwell in Garfield and Loup counties.
