From the United States Army Corps of Engineers:

All of the Great Lakes, except Lake Ontario, are 4 to 6 inches below the levels of a year ago. ; Lake Ontario is 6 inches higher than it was a year ago.... Lakes Erie and Ontario are expected to fall 2 and 3 inches, respectively, over the next 30 days. Levels over the next few months on all the Great Lakes, with the exception of Lake Ontario, are expected to remain lower than 2004/2005. Evaporation rates this fall may be higher than average due to warmer surface water temperatures. See our Daily Levels web page for more water level information.

If this forecast holds then spring 2006 levels look to be about a foot below 2005 levels.
