As is typical in spring, the lake level at South Lake is roughly 25ft below the bottom of the ramp. We expect this level to begin to come up fast with the flow changes and increase in runoff over the next couple weeks. In a perfect world we'd have boats available by June 15th but we’ll have to wait and see. As soon as the water level comes up we’ll drop in the boats and stock some fish. Wooo hooo!
Based on the weak snowpack and the reservoir forecast we are expecting a very short season for private boaters. Please keep an eye on our fish reports for news of when the water is up on the ramp. Our best guess is that this won't occur until early July but this could change.

Hot Lures: Thomas Buoyants, Minijigs, Kastmasters
Best Flies: Balance leaches, Bead-Head Nymphs, Blank ants.
