Lucky for me right now all the lakes/ponds are frozen.  Just walk out and grab your discs.  But, there are still the rivers with strong currents.

I have lost more then I have saved, but I have survived some circumstances.

The first disc I ever purchased was my first to go into the drank. It was a cool Jerry stamp on a Aviar Putter. My 5 year old and I where playing a round at Reedy Creek in Charlotte NC. On hole 7 my approach landed and stood and rolled. It went back down the hill to a creek at the base. Very small in width but I soon found out "very deep". We searched for about 20 minutes and it started getting dark. Long story short I got woke up at 6:00am by my son and said Dad lets go get Jerry. I had to go back... About 20 five gallon pails of water later and 5 other disc found finally I pulled it out. It was a very cool moment to share with my son. We just experienced a ace together a couple weeks ago but that's another story.

Wailoa River State Park Disc Golf Course on the Big Island of Hawaii.

The very name is a water hazard. This course is best played with local guides. The first time you play this course, you will be the designated swimmer. With twelve of eighteen holes over or beside water, everybody throws their stuff in the water sooner or later, and after all somebody's gotta get 'em. bring a mask, snorkel and fins ;o))

We were out at Lola Valley the other day and my friend threw a Glow Magnet out on the ice. When he walked out to retrieve it he fell threw the ice, making his disc sink in the water. Frozen from the waist down he managed to get his disc back, and he still managed to finish up the last two holes. It's wasn't very funny at the time, but it is now. But it was well worth it for a Photon Glow Magnet.
I take that back it was kinda funny at the time.

My son and I have both thrown discs into the ponds at Stone Creek in Derby. When the temps were higher we went in as far as we could wade and found many but two of mine were still missing. Stinky water and leeches are the pits!!!

six inches of rain in seven hours of disc golf. The whole day was one big water hazard (not to mention the lightning breaks). needless to say, the discs were not flying well. I threw three in on the same pond shot because there was no drop. Already drenched with three holes left, Fully clothed (socks, shoes, and all) I walked in the water chest deep to retrieve my three remaining drivers. trust me when I say I came out no more soaked than when I went in.

On one course, I put 3 discs in the water from the same tee! A guy in a kayak retrieved 2 of them for me!

Goggles or a snorkle mask are a vital part of my bag.
