I dont know if this helps.

Not seen any about anybody/thing dying there. Not saying it's not happened though.  Tends to be a passage and a photo in the paper saying again the pompiers had to rescue blah blah blah

Yes I have seen postings of the people and animals getting trapped in the mud in le  telegramme paper. So if we sdon't do the tour and stick to the paths we should be ok. Sounds a bit like like a horror story "stick to the path and all will be well" lol

That is not good advice.The silt has crusted over and appears to be safe to walk on.Four dogs have died and only last week a woman was in up to her chest and had to be helicoptered out.If you start walking from Bon Repos end you will come to the first lock which is silted almost level,then think that lock is about 20 feet deep !! Walk around but stay up high.

Given that there has been so little rain this spring the lake floor is dry, with no mud to get stuck in until you are at the edge of the flow of canal water, so there are no real risks in  walking round the area without a guide. Hundreds of people are doing just that.

You view the lake at your own risk. If you are not in an organised tour and have to be rescued the cost will be for you to bear. If you are in a tour you will be kitted out in a very fetching day glo EDF tabard and shepherded safely by your guide. If your guide is as bad as the one that took the tour I went on recently, you may be drawn to jump off the cliff top.
